Are Skittles All the Same Flavor?

This will probably shock you as much as it shocked us.

According to neuropsychologist, Dan Katz, all Skittles are the same flavor.

“So, Skittles have different fragrances and different colors — but they all taste exactly the same.”

Katz says this works because our brains are used to processing certain sensory cues together. For example, our brains associate the color yellow, a lemon smell and a slightly acidic taste with each other. When you’re offered two of these three sensory cues, your brain will fill in the blanks.

Of course, we had to put this to the test. And you could hear if this is true, or just a bunch of junk in our January 25, 2018 episode.
