Pouring Hot Water on Skittles Creates a Magical Rainbow

Pleasing to watch.

If you've had Skittles before then the chances are you're also pretty familiar with their “taste the rainbow” tagline, but rather than taste the rainbow, pouring hot water over them whilst they're neatly arranged on a plate allows you to see it too. 

From the moment the water touches them a vibrant stream of colours appears until they eventually all touch in the middle and it's pretty pleasing to watch.
