Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company, a division of Mars, Inc, in a joint venture between an undisclosed French vineyard, have recently announced that they have managed to replicate the flavors of their popular Skittles brand into grape form (see photo on left)!
The flavors of individual grapes range from Strawberry, Banana and Orange, through to the more obscure Kiwi Lime, Strawberry Starfruit, and Blue Raspberry Lemon.
"We’ve been looking for a way to take our brand to the next level, and into the wine market, whilst still keeping our focus on targeting the Millennial Generation, because they love new and trendy stuff!” said 12 year old Skittles spokeswomen Samantha Hyde.
It is unknown whether the winery has any plans to make wine with the grapes, and a name has not yet been given to the new DNA strain that the grapes originate from. Skittles was unfortunately not available for comment on the claims that eating the grapes turns your urine purple, and the apparent suicide of several sheep in and around the vineyards.
Hopefully by this point you’ve realized this isn’t a serious post! This was actually my April Fools Day post from last year.
