Taste the Rainbow with Colorful, Super-Popular Skittles!

The letter “S” used to stand for our favorite superhero in the fight for “truth, justice and the American Way,” but these days it denotes a favorite of a different kind: Skittles! Unlike most of our wedding candy selections, which have delighted moviegoers and candy lovers of all ages through many decades, Skittles have only been around for a single generation—but what a 30 years it’s been! The bright little candies with the big “S” on the shell were first introduced in Great Britain in 1974, and were imported in limited quantities to North America beginning in 1979. It wasn’t until 1982 that Skittles candies began to roll off production lines in the U.S.
Talk about a meteoric rise to the top! In the blink of an eye, Skittles became one of the most successful candy brands of all time. Now made by the Wrigley Company, Skittles are the most popular candy among American youth, and the second-most popular chewy candy among all age groups in the U.S. That’s impressive for a relatively “young” candy brand, but there’s good reason for its popularity.

With five bright colors sprinkled throughout every assortment, bulk Skittles make the perfect addition to any candy display. The sugary candies are fruit-flavored (orange, lemon, lime, grape and strawberry) and contain real fruit juice; it’s almost impossible to stop once you start! Their hard-candy shells and chewy centers previde a delicious snacking experience. Best of all, at The Candy Gallery, you won’t have to spend your time opening little retail packs to prepare for your event, because you can buy fresh, delicious assorted Skittles, right here, in any quantity you need—and at a great price too. And so, once again, our bulk Skittles save the day!
