No, not the candy...although I do really like the yellow ones. Skittles are not really skittles. That is an adorable pet name someone gave them, not sure when. They are actually for home decorating, but have become popular for scrapbooking and card making. They are small plastic dots that are flat on one side. They come in many transparant colors. Many have learned to color them with sharpies and other markers to change the look, but I haven't tried that yet. I store mine in little glass apothecary jars that I got from Michaels. I love these because of the look, and because they are clear and I can see my beautiful skittles. I only have two so far, because I refuse to pay full price for them...then are $4, and I only but one when I don't need my 40% off coupon for something else. For now they are on my wire shelf...that may change.
