COLUMBUS, Ohio — The lime-flavored Skittle is coming back.
The company announced Monday the flavor is coming back permanently after being removed for green apple in 2013.
"It's no secret that Lime has been a hot topic for SKITTLES fans since we replaced them with Green Apple back in 2013. Green Apple has had a good run, but the fans have spoken and it's time for Lime to return to the rainbow," said Fernando Rodrigues, Mars Wrigley Senior Brand Manager. "What better way to bring better moments to our loyal fans, than with the return of the most asked about flavor? The joy of Lime can't be denied anymore. It is back. This time for good."
Original and Sour packs will now contain orange, lemon, strawberry, grape and lime.
Customers can expect to see the packs featuring lime on shelves in October with a national rollout over the next few months.
