How to Make the S Come Off Skittles!

It turns out there's a way to remove the letter!

Nobody has ever wondered about this before, but it turns out there’s a way to remove the letter S from a Skittle. And it’s as simple as dropping it into a glass of water…

Weird, right? The (edible) glue that attaches the S to the Skittle is water-soluble, so once it’s submerged, the letter just kind of slithers off. 

Give it a go! Of course, the real challenge is trying to stick each S on a piece of coloured paper next to a big drawing of a snake.
