It's raining Skittles! This is every kids dream, right? Maybe even some adults. Well it came true in Dodge County, Wisconsin.

Although they didn't fall from the sky, instead they fell off the back of a flatbed truck. In fact hundreds of thousands of them were scattered all over a county highway. And they were all red. Red Skittles are my favorite. I so wish I could have been there.

This is news to me. Cows eating Skittles. Seems crazy doesn't it? Maybe that's why I like steak so much.

Sorry red Skittles for you this time.
