Somewhere, Willy Wonka is crying salted caramel tears hearing the tragic story of lost candy spread about County Highway S in Wisconsin. In a scene reminiscent of Candyland, red Skittles were found spread along the roadways leaving authorities boggled.
The head-scratching authorities didn’t have to open a massive investigation, however, thanks to a farmer who came forward to explain the great conundrum.
“From what I understand,” begins Sheriff Dale Schmidt told WTMJ, “these Skittles are probably rejects from the factory and they’re given out to farmers. Apparently they’re good nutrients for cattle.”
Sheriff Schmidt takes his work very seriously and performed a taste test to determine the flavor of the scattered Skittles.
“I think it could have been a mixed berry or some sort of a mixed berry,” his taste taste revealed.
