Taste the Rainbow

Skittles Coolers, a new ice cream, will soon be available, but you’ll have to take a trip across the pond to try it.

The tasty treat is the latest Skittles product to become available from Mars, which Talking Retail says is a hand-held ice cream featuring “fruity ice-cream with crunchy pieces covered in a strawberry sorbet.”

Skittles Coolers are only available in the United Kingdom and will debut at the end of February, according to Bustle.

Talking Retail also reports the candy company created Skittles Coolers after research showed hand-held ice cream is the biggest and fastest growing ice cream products in the United Kingdom.
