Everybody seems to be complaining about the new crust being softer, thinner, and wetter than the original. Softer. Thinner. Wetter.

    Softer.

Nostalgia Equals Distortion – Skittles

I first had Skittles in the late 1980s.  My mom had bought them as Halloween candy & we never had enough trick-or-treaters to run out of candy, so me & my siblings got the leftovers.  A year or two later …
