If there's a lolly flavour we could probs live without, i's yellow.
But if there's a lolly flavour that is spammed the most in Skittles bags, YOU GOT IT, it's yellow.
It probably isn't surprising news, for anyone that enjoys tasting the rainbow, that the yellow ~lemon flavoured~ Skittle dominates the packet.
We mean, the theory has even been proven by very determined Reddit users.
Hear us out.
A video from the Wrigley factory in Illinois where Skittles are made, show that the lollies are sorted by their colour into individual vats. BUT, along the production process, the yellow lollies somehow manage to sneak into the wrong section, meaning they're more dominant in the packets. How ambitious of them.
Other theories suggest, "More yellow makes the mix look brighter and makes you want to eat more," said one Reddit user, while another thinks the imbalance might be to do with cutting costs.
"Well the yellow dye may be their biggest order and they just make orange by mixing some yellow and red dye (instead of buying separate orange dye)."
Yo Wrigley, settle this please?
