I'm putting ads for these two types of candy on one page because I have often felt like they were competing against each other in some kind of contest of weirdness one-upsmanship, or something. (The ads are not in chronological order.) Personally, I think Skittles wins (but hey, the whole competition is probably just in my head). But for both candies, I'm gonna start with a few older ads, from the 90s- before they started doing anything really weird.
