Skittles Riddles are the newest flavor release. My package was a gift from my fiance, his work had a box of them in the office and he brought me one home. I had no idea they had hit shelves yet, so I was super appreciative to have him bring me some. So thoughtful!
The package is very bright and colorful in typical Skittles fashion. The package is bright teal this time (my photograph up there lies) and it works beautifully with the rainbow color scheme of the candies.
So what exactly are Skittles Riddles? They’re Skittles where the flavors and the colors are all mismatched. It’s Skittles Roulette. You don’t know what flavor will be what!
I do appreciate how they list the flavors to expect on the back. They made my tasting job a tad easier.
Strawberry: This one tastes like the typical Skittles strawberry flavor. Sweet, berry like and very “pink” tasting.
Apple: This one tastes of green apple right away. It’s that terrible typical slight sour Jolly Rancher apple flavor. Blech.
Punch: I am guessing that this one I am eating is punch. It’s zesty and has a lot of citrus flavors in it. It’s somewhat reminiscent of Hawaiian Punch in flavor too. I like it a lot.
Raspberry: Starts off very sweet then kicks in with intense notes of red berries. It does remind me of raspberries.
Watermelon: This one is sweet and tangy at the same time,and has that fake watermelon flavor. This was the last ones I tasted. It’s hard to separate it from all the other flavors.
I found tasting these Skittles annoying. I know they each flavor is supposed to be a mystery, but I found I kept encountering the same flavors over and over again and had a hard time finding variety. These were the typical Skittles flavors all over again just…repackaged and re-colored. So if you’re not into matching colors and flavors, these might be fun for you. I just found it annoying.
Rating: Not Worth It
