Wait, WHAT?!? Did you know this secret about Skittles?

The headline reads:  An Expert Reveals That All Colors Of Skittles Taste Exactly The Same And People Are Confused

Ummm, yes I am very confused.  This can't be true!  

Don Katz, a Brandeis University neuropsychologist who specializes in taste, told NPR that candy companies like Skittles have always been aware of the impact color dye has on the taste of each different "colored skittle" but in fact they actually all taste the same. "The Skittles people, being much smarter than most of us, recognized that it is cheaper to make things smell and look different than it is to make them actually taste different. So, Skittles have different fragrances and different colors — but they all taste exactly the same." [Source]

So basically we've all been living a lie and if you like a specific color or flavor of Skittles more than the others, you've been scammed!!!!
