    Skitttles used to be good until they got rid of the Lime Skittles and replace them with gross green apple skittles. Whoever thought green apple skittles was a good idea should of been fired a long time ago.

    Who writes these titles? Why not just say “inside the only skittles factory in the US” one of the only is redundant. Society is becoming pretty dumb considering editors don’t even know how to write properly anymore either.

    Makes me sad, actually. There was a Hersey's factory in my home town for almost 30 years...then, out of the blue, they said they were shutting it down. A few months later, 200+ people out of work, no more chocolate smell on the breeze. I really hope the same doesn't happen to this town.
