Skittles Candy TV Commercial (1974)

I admit that I probably have an addiction problem when it comes to Skittles candy. I didn’t learn of this problem until I was working at our local move theater in my neck of the woods…when you are spending three to five dollars a day on Skittles…it’s time to face the facts.

Seeing this cute commercial from 1974 is making me want to drive to the store however. Thanks to Heine71 for uploading this over on YouTube.

So is there a candy you just have to have to make it through the day?
