Fizzy Skittles?



True story. I came across these as I was doing my Cinco de Mayo shopping at my local Kroger. They so conveniently placed the skittles right in front of the check out line. Fizzl'd Fruits... I just HAD to try it. I didn't even wait 'til I got home. As soon I pulled out I opened the box and reluctantly tried one.



At first glance it reminds me of my fave kind of Skittles. Sour Skittles! Don't let this coating fool you though! As soon as it hits your tongue it starts fizzing! I was expecting a Pop Rock sort of fizz, but it was like the bubbles in your carbonated beverage fizz! Weird sensation.

If you're one of those people [like me] who likes to suck on their Skittles and wait 'til they get soft to chomp down on them, then this isn't for you. The fizzing sensation is interesting, but tasteless. So the 1st couple of seconds it's on your tongue it's just plain weird. BUT if you just like to pop 'em in and chew 'em right up these could be your kind of candy since you'll get the flavor and fizz at the same time :)

Flavors: Berry Punch, Melon Berry, Raspberry, Strawberry, and Wild Cherry

Have any of y'all tried this? What do you think?

Sounds interesting. The sour ones always made my mouth feel "raw" after only a couple.

What if you ate pop rocks, diet soda, AND these Skittles all at once? You'd probably either explode or go back in time.

I've never seen this before. Popping in your mouth AND sour? Sounds like a deadly combo!

I've never seen these, but I think I'd rather stick to regular skittles! I was never a big fan of fizzy candy
