Riddle me this…
Skittles Riddles? These should be called Skittles Randoms.
So this candy’s schtick is that the colors don’t really match up with the flavors. Sounded ok at first and I figured that within a couple of tastes I’d be able to match up the flavor with the color. And I thought I did, but half way through, the flavors started changing. First a blue one would be strawberry, then the next blue one would be apple.
For the one bag of Skittles Riddles I got, I was getting about a 70-80% success rate on the following flavor/color combos: Strawberry/Blue, Pink/Apple, Turquoise/Raspberry, Red/Watermelon, Lime Green/Punch. But every once in a while a random flavor would pop up in one of the colors. The flavors were all pretty tasty and tasted more like Skittles Wild Berry flavors than the original Skittles fruit flavors.
My final thoughts on these Skittles Riddles are mixed. They have good flavors, but the randomness of the flavors in the colors doesn’t allow me to pick and choose what I want to eat. I would imagine this is probably the worst part of being blind. Not knowing which flavor of skittle you’re about to pop in to your mouth.
I only recommend this flavor of Skittles to those type of people that pour a handful of Skittles into their palm and throw the whole sha-bang into their mouths. What flavor/color the candy is doesn’t really matter to those heathens. But if you’re like me, and prefer 100% genuine pure artifical flavoring, one skittle by skittle, then this candy will drive you nuts! It’s impossible to save some of your favorite flavors to the end.
