SKITTLES® is a sponsorship. It is a brand of chewy fruit flavored candies produced and marketed by Mars Inc. They have hard sugar shells which carry the letter S. Arrived on Gaia- around Wednesday February 13, 2008. Skittles sponsorship has since left Gaia December 28, 2009.
The first Skittles quest was the introduction of Skittles Chocolate Mix. The announcement was by Admin who told Gaians about up coming tasks and hangouts which would incorporate all of Skittles flavors. The first hangout had 2 areas, the first area had [GAIA] Pinata Man, who gave out tasks for Gaians to complete in order to receive a reward. The second area had a skittles rainbow stretching over water to a small island. Once this skittles rainbow was filled, Gaians who completed all the tasks got 1000 Gaia Gold.
Other quests involved watching commercials, taking polls, and playing mini games to be rewarded. Skittles was also used in-theme for Easter and Gaia Prom.
Skittles Fun Park was the third skittle hangout, and involved mini games to receive rewards.
Though not a Quest, Skittles was used as a theme for a giveaway in December 2009, the SKITTLES® Raffle Tickets would give Gaians the chance to win real-life prizes, while the SKITTLES® Rewards Tickets would give the chance of a fan-requested virtual item.
