Thousands of Skittles fall onto Wisconsin highway

20 January, 2017, 00:48 | Author: Eddie Kim

The truck was a flatbed pickup and the Skittles were in a large box.

Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt says the sweets fell off of a feed truck Tuesday night.

It turns out that the Skittles were being transported in the back of a flatbed pickup truck on the night of January 17 when they fell out into the road. "We got a big whiff which is obviously the smell of Skittles", Sheriff Dale Schmidt told our sister station WKOW.

The Skittles had been deemed unfit for packaging and were en route to be fed to cattle, the sheriff's office said.

Sheriff's deputies discovered the candy-covered County Highway S in Beaver Dam, Wis., shortly before 9 p.m. Tuesday, according to a post on the Dodge County Sheriff's Office Facebook page Wednesday. An ex-farmer says sweets found not good enough for human consumption often become "cheap carbs" for cattle.

Deputies with the department have since removed the candy from the road. Highway crews say the candy coating might actually improve traction on the road following a couple of icy days.
