2018 is right around the corner, but has already planned a creepy treat for next year's festivities. Skittles is launching a Zombie pack in 2019 that contains five fruity flavors—with a twist. Per a press release, "...Should you dare to open this treat, you will find HIDDEN Rotten Zombie flavors mixed into each pack!" Yes, you read that correctly. Rotten Zombie-flavored Skittles. We are just as confused as you are.
I would imagine the rotten zombie flavors will be reminiscent of those really gag-worthy Harry Potter jelly beans? It truly does sound like a scary experience to throw a handful of Skittles in your mouth, expecting fruity flavors, and then suddenly tasting...rotten zombie.
The Zombie Skittles will include Petrifying Citrus Punch, Mummified Melon, Boogeyman Blackberry, Chilling Black Cherry, and Blood Red Berry. The Skittles will come in a share size for $1.89, lay down bag for $2.49, and package of fun size bags (perfect for trick-or-treaters) for $2.99. Poor kiddos won't know what they're in for when they tear open the Zombie Skittles...and taste rotten zombie?!
Come 2019, there will be another darker Skittles flavor. Skittles Darkside will return, with a "delicious mix of mysterious, dark fruit flavors inspired by the other side of the Rainbow." The mix includes Dark Berry, Black Cherry, Forbidden Fruit, Blood Orange, and Midnight Lime.
Though we won't have access to these new Skittles until after this Halloween, there's plenty of other candies that'll make you the coolest on the block. obviously!
