How Many Skittles are in a Pack?
I did the research and counted the number of Skittles in a small (one serving pack) and a family pack and here are the results:
Small (45g) Pack
I counted 41 individual Skittles in a 45g snack bag of Skittles. This confirms that the individual weight of 1.1g is correct because 41 times 1.1g equals 45g.
Family (196g) Pack
The total amount of skittles in a 196g family pack is around 178 Skittles (this might vary by one or two per pack because each skittle weighs a slightly different amount).

Skittle Calorie Chart (for various serving sizes)
Below are the calorie figures for various servings of Skittles, so you can find the figures you need. These figures are based on a standard fruit Skittle weighing 1.1g each and using the following calorie assumption:
A 45g bag contains 41 Skittles and the pack information confirms this amount is 179kcal, so to find the calories of an individual Skittle I divided 179 by 41 which gives a figure of 4.4kcal per Skittle. Calories are rounded to the nearest whole number.
|Skittle Portion Size||Calories (kcal)|
|Half a 45g bag||90|
|Family pack (196kcal)||780|
|49g Serving Size||195|
|Fun-size bag (18g)||72|
