    This is a marketing ad for the company, not a "hot it’s made". You people are scumbags.

    Did not show how skittles were made. Seemed to be advertising how good Mars was for building the factory in a small town. how can anyone be happy that a company donates sweets instead of paying the full amount of property tax for the services that are needed and of course when your a kid you don't care about property tax you a kid you don't care about anything.

    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.
