The colorful hard candy has been around for decades and children in the U.S. and Europe are addicted to the sweet and sour flavors. Much like with M&M or any other candy that comes in different colors, we all have our favorite one, and the debate on which flavor is best is as old as the candy itself.
Some of us like the apple flavor, others swear by the cherry, and others yet won’t eat anything but the lime. However, some of us have known this for a long time and others are slowly realizing that all skittles taste the same – they just smell different. The different scents is what fools us into thinking they taste differently. It’s no secret that smell plays a big part in what our food tastes like, and this is just one example.
