“I’m more confused than a chameleon in a bag of Skittles”

"I’m more confused than a chameleon in a bag of Skittles” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. A bag of Skittles contains multi-colored candies; a chameleon is a lizard that can change its color.

“I’m as confused as a chameleon in a bag of Skittles” has been cited in print since at least 2008.


Wikipedia: Skittles (confectionery)
Skittles is a brand of fruit-flavoured sweets, currently produced and marketed by the Wrigley Company, a division of Mars, Inc.

Skittles consist of hard sugar shells imprinted with the letter “S”. The interior consists mainly of sugar, corn syrup, and hydrogenated palm kernel oil along with fruit juice, citric acid, and natural and artificial flavors.

Put simply, nothing.

A chameleon does not change color based on surroundings but based on mood, UV exposure, and temperature.
