Awhile back, I came across a terrific piece over at Deviantart. See it here: http://atashinokoe.deviantart.com/art/Reese-s-Pieces-21650932 I was quite taken with it and decided to, well, steal her idea.
CAUTION: I just realized that link is mature-tagged, so unless you have dA account, you probably won't be able to see it!
The decision to use Skittles was -- like a lot of good ideas -- born from being stoned. I was with a few people and one of the eats someone brought was Skittles, and being in that state made the sensation of eating them much, much more sensual. I believe I described the grit of them as I was chewing them up as "my gums getting a million little handjobs". And then the flavor was amazing too, but I'm not gonna share how I described THAT!
I also liked the idea of being able to call this piece "Taste the Rainbow" because of how it would make that slogan just drip with innuendo.
Not a hell of a lot more to say, really.
