I called Wrigleys today, to find out if Skittles are Haram or Hala to consume. After conversing with a lady by the name of "Melissa", she provided me the info and sent me the following e-mail:
Dear Mr. M,
Thank you for contacting us to inquire about the origin of the gelatin used in .
Gelatin contributes to the unique texture of our Skittles and Starburst products sold in the U.S.
The gelatin used is U.S. Starburst Gummibursts is derived from pork. The gelatin used in all other U.S. Starburst products and all U.S. Skittles products is derived from beef.
We would also like to inform you that are removing the gelatin from Skittles products and you should start to see the Gelatin free Skittles in your stores soon. We would recommend to just check the labels before purchasing to make sure the label does say Gelatin free.
We hope this information is helpful in finding your favorite products. If you have any further comments or questions please feel free to contact us, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST, at 1-800-974-4539.
