Skittles were devised by a gentleman who had been named, by no coincidence, Mr. Skittle. Mr. Skittle eventually researched in the rainy sky of England, and saw a rainbow arching over his house. His curiosity led him to think what a rainbow would taste like. This is where Skittles catch phrase originates from: "taste the rainbow." Mr. Skittle began to experiment with a myriad of different flavored candies to be able to taste the rainbow. Finally he selected one formula which would function as the Skittle we all know and love today. The five original flavors are intended by Mr. Skittle himself. These flavors were grape, lemon, lime, orange and strawberry. Soon after, Skittle began to mass produce these candies around the globe. In 1974, full production of skittles began by and English candy company. The trademark letter "s" was inscribed on every skittles candy from day 1, nevertheless it was originally a blackish, deep violet color. This could later change to the white color skittles have today in 1988.

As interest in skittles grew, these candies began to be shipped internationally, coming to america in 1979 as an import candy. The popularity from the skittle grew so fast in the usa that in 1981, the Skittle company was moved to america for good, and also the European production of skittles was gone to live in the Czech Republic, to make by a portion of the Mars candy company.
