Are green Skittles discontinued? In the United States and other countries excluding Europe and Australia, green Skittles were green apple flavored from 2013 until 2021.
What flavor is the green Skittle 2021? Lime Skittles are officially taking back their rightful place from Green Apple. Skittles fans will soon be able to taste one flavor of the rainbow that’s been missing in action for quite some time.
When did green Skittles stop being lime? For decades, lime was just another Skittles flavor — part of the tasteable rainbow alongside orange, lemon, strawberry, and grape; a member of the original flavor squad dating back to their U.S. launch in 1979. But in 2013, Skittles-maker Wrigley decided to break up the band, kicking out lime in favor of green apple.
Why did Skittles take away lime? Unfortunately, in 2013, Skittles decided to mess with perfection and changed the green flavor from lime to green apple. Naturally, Skittles lovers questioned why the company would ruin the beloved original five flavors. Apparently, the Skittles ran a poll that revealed the green-apple flavor tested higher than lime.
