- Are you asking taste-wise or health-wise? Health-wise, they are not very different from eating several teaspoons of sugar in one go. Skittles are 75% sugar by mass, and contain several artificial flavors and colors. The other 25% -- starch and hydrogenated oil -- does not have anything redeeming either.
- Carmine is a red dye used to create the red Skittles. Carmine is harvested from the cochineal scale insect. Shellac is a wax secreted by the lac insect, Kerria lacca. Since 2009, Skittles have been produced without the gelatin and the shellac.
Understanding that this is only from one 16-ounce bag purchased at Fred Meyer, the results were still interesting: the citrusy flavors were slightly more likely to occur than the nasty ones. Furthermore, there were exactly 400 Skittles in a 16 ounce bag, or 25 Skittles per ounce. Each Skittle is about 4.5 calories.
