First of all, sorry for the lack of update. I got lethargic… bleeeaaaahhhh.
Second, I am sorry to say that Skittles no longer taste like a rainbow to me.
Until yesterday, I actually had not eaten Skittles for years because they were made with gelatin, which comes from animal bones. I refuse to eat anything with gelatin. I know, it’s sad. No marshmallows for me (although I’ve had some great vegan ones). Then, while at a friend’s house, I saw on the back of a Skittles bag that they no longer contain gelatin. Whhaaa? Cool. So I took a few. Of course they’re terrible for you, but just because I like salad for breakfast doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy a little corn syrup and artificial flavor once in a while!
But my friends, I was disappointed. I really did only taste corn syrup and fake flavor. And not very good fake flavor. My palate has become adjusted to unprocessed foods.
Stupid taste buds, ruining my nostalgia…
