Skittles were first made commercially in 1974 by a British company. They were then introduced in North America in 1979 as an import confectionery. Finally in 1982, domestic production of Skittles began in the United States. Today they are made by Wrigley.
In 1974, Skittles were first sold in Europe. Since Skittles were so popular in Europe, Mars Candy Co. imported Skittles to The United States.
