Zombie Skittles candies are coming, try them if you dare!

Be careful if you are trying to taste the rainbow this fall, because you may get a taste of something rotten! Skittles is releasing a new flavor this Halloween called, Zombie Skittles — try it if you dare!

The Zombie Skittles packs contain the usual suspects as far as flavors go — but with a spooky twist on the names! The candy packs are made up of a mix of five fruity flavors: Petrifying Citrus Punch, Mummified Melon, Boogeyman Blackberry, Chilling Black Cherry, and Blood Red Berry.

Here’s where it gets wEiRd. There’s a rotten flavor hidden in every pack! You won’t know which candy is the nasty-tasting one until it’s too late and you’re already mid-chew.

“Our fans love SKITTLES® not just for its delicious fruity flavors, but for the irreverence and sense of humor for which the brand is known,” said Rebecca Duke, SKITTLES® Senior Brand Manager, Mars Wrigley U.S. “This Halloween, we wanted to give our fans the ultimate rotten twist on the candy they know and love, challenging them to test their bravery over a bag of Zombie SKITTLES®.”
