Skittles first introduced its Five Fruity Flavors in 1979, which included Lime as the green piece. In 2013, however, the brand decided to replace the Lime flavor with Green Apple. Many candy fans were not happy with the change. “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,” Fernando Rodrigues, Mars Wrigley Senior Brand Manager, said in a press release.
