Regular skittles are gluten-free.
The Skittles Littles are NOT. They are mini skittles in a tube like container. Dont ask me why the company would do that, but they contain wheat. I'm in Canada so maybe its a canadian product

I haven't noticed a problem with skittles. Always check the ingredients though just in case. I've had the red, purple, and orange colored bags. Purple is my favorite :)

skittles are for sure fine for celiacs, are you thinking that the maltodextrin is not fine? cause it is from corn if it is made in the US, for sure fine to eat!
