The Last of the Green Lime Skittles

green skittles

It wasn’t easy. We looked high and we looked low. Although they have been gone from us for what seems like forever, we knew that somehow, somewhere there had to be one last bit, one tiny remnant of the sublimely delicious Green Lime Skittles. We knew in our heart of hearts that it had to be possible, somewhere on Earth there had to be some last bit of Lime remaining.

The naysayers and doubters didn’t believe; they refused to have any hope. They had no faith and they let us know it every chance they had:

“Lime is gone” they said.

“Give up and just accept the Green Apple” they proclaimed.

“You guys are such Lime Losers” they professed.

But no matter what we never gave up, we never gave in. It couldn’t be true, there had to be some Green Lime Skittles somewhere! The search was arduous and we must admit there were times where our own faith was tested. However, after months and months of searching, of failure and rejection our faith and hard work was finally rewarded! We found them, and not just a handful, but more…much more. A FULL 2 POUNDS OF GREEN LIME SKITTLES!!!

Although we are a candy company, we are only human. We must admit the thought came across our minds to keep all the Green Lime Skittles for ourselves, to secretly enjoy all the scrumptiousness and forbidden Lime Skittles flavor. No one would be the wiser; no one would know our deep, dark Skittles secret.

But no matter how delicious those Lime Skittles would be, our conscience wouldn’t let us violate our customers’ trust and love. Our motto is to ‘share the candy with the people’ and to keep all those Green Lime Skittles to ourselves would go against everything we stand for, everything we have worked so hard for.

So here they are for you Candy Lovers, our very last 2 lbs of Green Lime Skittles. The office bet is that they won’t even last 24 hours*. Let the countdown begin!!!

*Update: These Bad Boys sold out in 2 hours. Green Lime Skittles are just so badass.

Halloween Candy Buffet

Check out our oh-so-funky Halloween Candy Buffet! We put a lot of work into this one baby, and by a lot we mean hours and hours of overtime. Never satisfied we kept adding more and more and more candy…and then more and more Halloween decorations. It seemed like a never ending process, but the more we kept adding the better it looked – at least to us!

We think we did a good job, but what do you think? Did we pull it off, or could we have done better? You tell us:

Halloween Candy Buffet by Temptation Candy

Our Halloween Candy Buffet includes Halloween M&M’s, Orange Reese’s Pieces, Orange Sour Balls, Orange Pineapple Candy Sticks, Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses, Orange and White Gumballs, Mango Melon Tropical Starburst, Tangerine Mango Blow Pops, Goetze’s Caramel Creams and Orange Skittles. All of our Halloween decorations and containers (hay, spiders, skull, pumpkins, apothecary jars, etc.) are from Michael’s.

Yes, all that hay will surely be a mess to clean up. However, that is only a small trivial concern compared to the most fantastic fact about this Halloween Candy Buffet: We all at Temptation Candy GET TO EAT IT! Yes, that is what you call a win-win! Happy Halloween everyone!

LEGO MR. OWL Goes to Work on Labor Day

LEGO MR. OWL Goes to Work

Hello Temptation Candy, I see that last week you all took off for Labor Day…very interesting to say the least. Did you enjoy your time off? Did you sleep in, perhaps woke up just in time for a late brunch and some soap operas? Or did you go to the beach and lay in the sand all day? Or did you do a little shopping in Santa Monica or maybe at The Grove? Perhaps after a quick dip in the pool you spent the rest of the day relaxing poolside. Continue reading

Joining the Fight Against Green Apple Skittles

For reasons unknown, earlier this year Skittles decided to make a dramatic change: switching Lime Skittles for Green Apple. Now, personally my favorite Skittles flavors are Grape and Strawberry, but for the contingent that hold Lime flavored Skittles close to their hearts this change has been utterly devastating news.

Kim Kardashian Lime Skittles

Lime Skittle Lovers have indeed been left out in to dry, thrown under the bus, vandalized, hauled over the coals, rebuked, marginalized and minimized. They weren’t consulted before this monumental change and nor do they have idea if or when Skittles will bring Lime Skittles back. They got the bad news with no warning – out of the blue they go to buy Continue reading

Book Review: Candy Experiments

candy experiments book

Yes Candy Lovers, yes your wildest dreams do come true! Author Loralee Leavitt has come down from the mountaintop and blessed us all with her brilliant book succinctly titled: “Candy Experiments.” Well…actually this book was spawned from Loralee’s equally entertaining and educational website: www.candyexperiments.com. Whether in book form or on the web, Loralee takes us on a journey where candy meets chemistry and we discover there is more to our favorite sweets beyond good looks and a fabulous taste.

Candy Experiment clocks in at over 125 pages and Loralee gives us a book chock full of over 50 candy experiments. The experiments are categorized by the amount of time it takes to perform (from 5 minutes to several days) and level of ease (easy, medium and advanced). It may be hard at first to part ways with your M&M’s, Skittles, Gummy Worms, Tootsie Rolls, Jolly Ranchers, Marshmallows, Laffy Taffy, Life Savers, etc., but performing these experiments can be just as fun as eating the candy!

Q&A With Sugar Baby: Man-Up Bro!

Sugar Baby is our resident guru of all things tasty and sweet. Yes she is only 3 years old, but in matters of candy, age aint nothing but a number. Our faith in her is unwavering, and our reward has been a keen insight into the world of candy and sweets like no other. You can find a skeptic on every corner, but a rock solid sweet tooth? Those are few and far between. However if you are a skeptic with doubts, go ahead and Tweet or email her your innermost candy dilemmas or sultry chocolate temptations (you can do it anonymously). Hopefully she will deem it worthy of her time and provide you with a life-altering response. As she would say: “Smoooches!”

QuestionLet me make this short and to the point. I am lawyer at a top law firm in the city which requires me to work at least 80 stressful hours a week. The only thing that keeps me sane is candy, I have a huge candy bowl on my desk filled with NERDS, Jolly Ranches, Tootsie Pops, AirHeads, Hershey Kisses, etc. Whenever I get super-stressed out or demoralized about something at the job, candy saves the day!
