Vitamin C: Is it really good for you?

Everything now-a-days has 100% DV vitamin C in it per serving. This juice I have on my desk has it. A bag of skittles is loaded with the stuff. One pack of Starbursts has 50% DV.

How much of this stuff can you take in? If I take in 10000% DV in one day by mistake, you know, from eating, will I die? Whose idea was it to cram acid (yes, vitamin C is a weak acid) into food?
