Introduction: Skittles Cereal

..................................................................................................................................................................................

I'm trying to save as much money as possible, but I need sugar to function properly. Skittles are my weakness. When I went to walgreens they had three sizes of skittles bags, the small ones (about 75 cents), the medium resealable ones on the hooks (about $3), and the 41oz top shelf resealable ones (Only 5 dollars! I'd be an idiot not to buy them).

The large bag has been sitting on my desk for the past few days, getting picked at by myself and various other Instructables employees. This morning while nagutron was poaching some skittles, he mentioned something about them just being solidified corn syrup. This got me thinking, why should the main ingredient in skittles only be ingested in one state of matter. Naturally, skittles cereal is what followed.

Not too healthy, haha. But, this actually does sound good...

+1 rating.

Yeah, it actually wasn't that bad (I did really try it, instead of just staging the photos). The only problem (besides the obvious health ones), was that the corn syrup lacked flavor. I probably could have made this much better by adding some flavored sugar. I did this later on, but the fruit punch mix I used does not taste too good on its own, so it didn't improve the mix much. I'm sure if the right amount of tang powder were dissolved completely in the corn syrup, it would taste pretty good.

Corn syrup is also a laxitive: a problem that you can't fix...

oooo i Have Another For You :P Skittles Have A Type Of Gelatin Inside Of Them And To Make It, (I Might Be A Bit Off) They Take Animal Skin And Put It Under Pressure In Water For A Month And All The White Foam like Stuff on top is The Gelatin. Yum :P

author
DeadConcious (author)NeonLime2008-03-21

Close but no cigar Neon. Skittles contain gelatin, yes, and gelatin is collagen obtained through the boiling of the connective tissue and bones of animals. This applies to all gelatin, even kosher gelatin, not just gelatin in skittles.

NeonLime (author)DeadConcious2008-03-24

When i Said "Skittles Have A Type Of Gelatin Inside" I Didnt Mean That Only Skittles Have It :P I Meant The Inside Of Skittles Is A Type Of Gelatin. Also Thanks For Explaining That Better!

author
Sunbanks (author)gmjhowe2008-03-19

Why just the yellow ones?

author
gmjhowe (author)Sunbanks2008-03-20

Something to do with the additives they put in the yellow ones! Sends most people hyper!

you can make a really good milkshake with skittles by throwing a small pack in a blander with some milk and a scoop of vanilla icecream and grinding until it stops complaining.
There is a shop over in Chester (UK) that uses this method for mor or less any sweet. Parma violets was a bit squiffy but malteasers came out nice
