Introduction: Skittles Cereal

About: Working wireless-ly.

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

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.

    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...
