Skittles Is Getting Roasted For Their Gray 'Pride Edition' Candies

It's Pride month, and we all know what that means. The world is celebrating the  LGBTQ+ community - and brands are bending over backwards trying to show their solidarity. While some companies opt to create rainbow versions of their logos (ahem, Raytheon), others color-fy their home pages or offer special editions of their food products. Apparently - for the second year in a row - Skittles has joined the latter group, re-issuing their "pride packs" of gray candies. The depressing-looking bags claim that "only one rainbow matters during pride" and that Skittles "gives up" its rainbow in support of the month. 


We're not sure if we blocked the PR stunt out of our minds last year, or if they fell under the radar - but we're not alone in our surprise regarding color being drained from the fruity, chewy candy. Twitter user @jackary (who happens to be gay) shared his disbelief at the gray bags yesterday, which happened to be the first day of Pride month. Though it's undoubtedly important to show support for the LGBTQ+ community, many people  on the internet think this is laughable act of cringeytheatrics. And they're not afraid to say it. Though this may be one of the silliest shows of support from a corporation, it's only June 2nd. There's a lot more time for pandering. And a lot more time to make fun of it.

Candy is meant to be the opposite of evil, but sometimes that's not always the case. Anyone who's watched an ad for M&Ms (or seen some of the memes) can see there's something fishy going on with their mascots. Primarily the fact that their favorite food appears to be other M&Ms. Cannibalism is hardly a light topic, even when it's being done by chocolate-based goods. However, that hasn't stopped The Food Theorists from tackling it. Tracing the history of the candy's fondness for the flesh of its own kind, they come to some interesting conclusions in the video below.

'Drake Reacting To A Lollipop' Is Getting Meme'd To Sh*t

Magician Julius Dein recently posted a video on Twitter of him performing a magic trick involving a lollipop for Drake. Dein puts the lollipop in his mouth and asks Drake who his favorite superhero is. When Drake answers that it's Batman, Dein reveals the lollipop, which has magically been transformed into the shape of Batman's head. 

Drake's subsequent reaction is one of hilarious shock and some excellent facial expressions, which of course we absolutely had to meme.
