Welcome to the very first review for Walking the Candy Aisle! woohoo!
Today I've got a real treat, a review of Skittles original flavor.
One thing to note before I dive into the review though, I have a personal bias here since Skittles have been one of, if not my top most absolute favorite candy forever. So you can probably expect how this review will shake out :)
If you've never had Skittles before they are a small chewy candy with a hard outer shell. They are known for their very strong fruit flavor and bright colors even using the commercial tagline "Taste the Rainbow".
So first off the packaging. I have to say I love it. Bright red, with a stark white Skittles written across it, this is definitely eye catching while walking down the candy aisle. The rainbow erupting out of the letter I is great showcasing the colors of the candy. And the description on the packaging read: "Bite Size Candies - Natural and Artificial flavors"
And as for those flavors? Well Skittles original variety has five: Strawberry, Orange, Lemon, Lime. and Grape. If you're following the rainbow logic now you may be asking why no Blue? You could do Blueberry, or even Blue Raspberry (a la Kool-Aid). Then we'd have all the base colors for an actual rainbow... oh well. We'll probably never know.
I really love opening a package of Skittles, the smell is just amazing and really strongly fruity. Definitely makes me hungry right away.
The candies themselves are nice and brightly colored, with the trademark S emblazoned on them, presumably so people don't think they're M&Ms.

Overall, Skittles are pretty top notch.If you are a person who likes very strong fruit flavors then this is definitely a candy you should go for.
Skittles original flavor rates: 5 / 5
