Skittles Crazy Sours

By Meowitserin
I know this may sound absurd, but I have never actually had Skittle's before. They had just never really appealed to me, and when i finally did develop a slight curiosity for them I realised that they weren't actually suitable for vegetarians! And, as expected, when I knew that I couldn't have them I only wanted them more... So my mom treated me to not just one bag, but three so that I could get the whole Skittle experience. I am a big fan of sour sweets so I decided to try the 'Crazy Sours' first.I shall go through them by flavor and color because there is a good chance that I have got the flavours wrong... (The see no evil monkey emoji would have been perfect here, but I am a professional so I shall refrain).

Green (Apple)I am pretty certain that this flavor was apple, and it was the very first one that I tried. I am glad that I went with this because it tasted a lot like a deliciously tart and crisp Granny Smith Apple! It was sour enough to make your mouth water, but not so much that it was painful to eat, so definitely a win in my opinion.Orange (Orange)Even I could identify that this flavor was orange, and if I'm honest, this was by far my least favorite flavor. It tasted really artificial and I found myself leaving most of them out if I'm honest or giving them to my Mum to eat. So this flavor wasn't too great and I think it could do with being taken out of the mix and replaced with a more interesting flavor like pear or perhaps even lemon & lime! Comment below with any better alternatives!Pink (Raspberry or Strawberry)This was my favorite flavour, I loved that they had a sour tang that helped to cut through the very sweet flavor of some berry-I am not entirely certain what berry, but I am confident that it was a berry. I think that his was my favorite flavor but I actually really enjoyed all of the flavours so it is only a slight favorite.Purple (Blackcurrant or Blackberry)This flavor was a bit sourer than the other flavours but again it worked well, the fruitiness came through well and I enjoyed this flavour, whatever it was.Yellow (Pineapple)This was a really nice flavor and probably the strongest in its sour flavour, but this was probably because pineapple is naturally a sour fruit. The flavor only intensified as you chewed away at it.Skittles Crazy SoursRating - 8.25/10Vegan - YesCalories - 218Buy Again - Yes!
