To look at the history of Skittles candy, it’s not a bad idea to take a brief glance at the history of the Mars candy company. Frank C. Mars and his wife Ethel started the Mars company back in 1911. Well before this time, Frank was making candy with his Mom as a young boy. Later, he and his wife Ethel began producing candy in their Tacoma, Washington kitchen. It was from this humble beginning, that the huge Mars candy company has grown.
