It doesn't make sense that someone would claim that waffles are heavy and dense when they're made out of LITERALLY THE SAME BATCH OF MATERIALS AND RATIOS OF SAID MATERIALS. Pancakes take up more volume and should be the same density so therefore logic dictates that pancakes are heavier and more bullshittier than waffles.

Strawberry & Lime was a daiquiri. Lemon & Lime was a soda. Grape & Lime was a great fruit punch. Orange & Lime was a citrus cooler.

As nice as Green Apple is, it doesn’t play well with others. It’s too head strong. Green Apple and Grape is a wreck. Green Apple and Lemon is passable, but only because Lemon is making up for Apple’s failings. Green Apple and Strawberry is a battle in my mouth, the floral notes of the berry are quite strong, but the plastic note of the Green Apple just steamrolls it. Green Apple and Orange is, well, just fine.

This is simply not true, pancakes are made from flour, eggs, milk, oil, baking powder, and salt, while waffles are apparently made by taking a shit on the waffle iron.

Waffles are for fucktards who cant make a perfect pancake. Waffle irons are for wimps.

Normally, I like apple flavored things more than lime flavored. However, when grabbing a handful of Skittles, lime pairs better with the other flavors better than apple does.

Hence the WTF expression I had when I started munching. With normal skittles, it doesn't matter what handful you get; you're gonna get a tasty mouthful.

The green apple just throws everything else off. It has no business with the other flavors.

The bag in the pic above says "Original Skittles" and lists green apple. Green apple is not an original flavir to Skittle, thus false advertising. Class action!

So, this thread inspired me to pick up some Skittles. I bought both regular and sour packages.

I gotta say, the green apple flavor is monumentally better than that crummy bland Lime flavor. It goes with the other flavors SO much better, especially in the sour package.

Good on ya, Mars Inc.! Well done.

btw, the only way to make pancakes good (besides adding blueberries) is to fry them in oil so you get a crispy exterior, with texture.

Of course, this just further reminds you why waffles are superior.

Holy shit I didn't know about this. Those fucking assholes. Lime skittles were the best ones. Fucking apples. What the hell kind of replacement is that? I hope the people responsible are slowly sodomized to death.

First of all, red skittles are the best skittles. This is not up for debate.

Secondly, Skittles will burn in fiery hell for changing lime to sour apple.

Thirdly, pancakes are greater than waffles and if you don't think so you should fuck off to Belgium where you belong.

French? Are you serious?
Maybe Crepes is the wrong word.
The ones I'm talking about are Swedish.

Grandpa made them. Every time he made them they turned out perfect.
My mom has been able to duplicate his recipe, but nobody else in the world can do them as good, and grandpa is no longer around.

Only other place that I've had similar/good quality has been Al Johnsons in Door County, Wi.


You can keep your delusions of pretension. For me, crepes are about love and all the best things about humankind.

I thought I would like Green Apple better... but I was wrong. It just clashes with the rest of the citrus flavours.

Also Waffles and Pancakes are equally good... and really come down to what you put on them.
I had corn pancakes the other day with real maple syrup. I almost came.

The sour apple BELONGS with the sour fruits. STAY THERE! It doesn't belong with the original flavors which are all sweet.

At first I was going to take up arms against those claiming lime is superior, but after some levelheaded ones were able to make a sound case for lime fitting standard Skittles (and Sour Apple the uh, Sour Skittles). I don't really care though, as I tend to prefer sour stuff when I get fruity. I remember eating tiny grapes right off the vine, they'd make Mr Slave pucker they were so awesomely sour.

While that is true, its much easier to dress up waffles as you don't have to work the good stuff into the batter. Waffles have perfectly made little pockets that fit just right for the good stuff.

Corn pancakes? Tha fuck? The only suitable corning of your carbs should be pop(corn), cornbread, corn chips, and HFCS. Cornflapjacks just sounds like what happens to transgendered people in Nebraska truckstops after the natives find out.

Red, then purple, then...actually like with most, the red and purple are the best and the others only exist to pad out and for the mutant fucks that like those flavors. Occasionally blue or green is ok but they're often substandard as well. If you want lemon then suck lemon drops and stop making companies waste space for the better flavors.

The only orange that is good is Reese's Pieces and that's obviously because its not orange flavored. Stick to orange juice or sherbert if you want orange.

Waffles>>>pancackes.

Pancakes, like cheesecakes are clearly misnamed. Then again tasteless flour discs and tasty sourcream sludge probably aren't very marketable.
