In one 2 ounce package of original Skittles, which is about 54 pieces, there are 240 calories, 25 of which come from fat. There are about 2.5 grams of fat, 54 grams of carbohydrates, and 44 grams of sugars. However, in a pack of sour Skittles there are only 200 calories, 18 calories from fat, 2 grams of fat, 44 grams of carbohydrates, and 37 grams of sugar. So, the original skittles contain more calories and sugars than the sour skittles variety. But the question is: which is better?
Eighth graders Michelle Vu, Evan Decock, and Catlynn Nguyen all think that sour skittles are much better. Michelle says, “They’re sourly awesome”. Catlynn likes playing “chubby bunny” with her Skittles and the way she has to squint her eyes when she gets overpowered by the sour is really funny to watch.
People who think opposite of them and strongly oppose those sour lovers are eighth graders Anysa Mugica and Ezekiel “Zeke” Seccombe. The both think that regular skittles are “the bomb digity.” Anysa says, “Regular tastes way better and they don’t leave your mouth tingly.”
I personally think that Sour skittles rock and they have more flavor and depth because you never know how much sourness you will get with each skittle. But everyone has their preference.
