Citrus candy gourmands rejoice, for Mars has announced lime Skittles are on the comeback trail.
The lime flavor was discontinued and replaced with sour apple in 2013. Apparently, this was because market research showed it tested more favorably, with the lime said to be almost identical to lemon. Since then, various online campaigns have sprung up from diehard fans demanding its return. Today, Mars has listened.
Arriving this summer, you'll be able to cop Skittles “Long Lost Lime” packs at select Walmart stores nationwide. In addition to lime, the special edition release will also include orange, lemon, grape and strawberry.
Mars has been getting experimental of late. They also just released these Spicy Skittles.
