Would You Try Spicy Skittles?

Let's discuss...

How experimental are you feeling, Influensters? If you're a true foodie, we have a feeling you've already put your taste buds to the test with unique flavor combos. (Ramen Pringles? Doritos Blaze? Been there, done that!) And if you're a true spicy food fan, you're about to have your mind blown. One of your favorite candies (and top-rated candy on Influenster) is about to get a flamin' hot flavor update.

Skittles is rolling out a brand new Sweet Heat flavor into stores right now—and it's unique one for sure! The new Sweet Heat Skittles adds a spicy hot flavor to the fruity Skittles flavors you already know and love. Specifically, the new five flavors include: Sizzlin' Strawberry, Fiery Watermelon, Flamin' Orange, Lemon Spark, and Blazin' Mango.

Although Skittles announced the launch of these spicy flavors last year (along with Starburst), the new flavor is just now making its way into stores nationwide. To celebrate the new launch, Skittles sent football player Marshawn Lynch went to a senior living community to ask residents to taste test the new flavors and give their honest opinions. (Future Influensters maybe?!) The results are just as fun as you'd expect!

We haven't been #blessed enough to put these spicy-meets-fruity candies to the test, but since they're making their way into candy aisle everywhere, you can bet where we're headed after work. But what do you think? Are you excited to try this new flavor?
