Licroice Skittles

Did you know that Skittles makes (made?) Liquorice Skittles and they were available in non-US markets? I stumbled upon this page that talks about them then found a blog entry talking about them. Here is a description:
  • green — aniseed. They taste much like the Springerle cookies my mom used to make at christmas every year. Yummy.
  • yellow — vanilla. A nice combination of vanilla flavour and liquorice.
  • white — mint. A bit too minty for my taste.
  • red — spice. I think it’s cinnamon but it burns a little on the tongue.
  • black — liquorice. Very strong liquorice flavour.

The most recent mention of Liquorice Skittles I found was in 2003 and I found a few mentions as far back as 2001. The Skittles product list doesn’t mention them so I have to assume they are not being made anymore. Has anyone (ever) seen these? (Not that I want any – I hate licorice.)

Speaking of Skittles, I need to find a bag of Ice Cream Skittles – sounds nasty, but might be a fun review. UPDATE: i found some Ice Cream Skittles – not bad, but not great.

    Those ice-cream Skittles? I haven’t been able to find full bags of them anywhere, but today at Food Lion did find a regular bag of Skittles that had pink (strawberry ice cream flavor) instead of red. The bag said something about trying all the limited-edition ice-cream flavors, so maybe they changed their marketing plan and sold them one changed flavor per bag?

    RESPONSE: Interesting. I’m gonna hit the local dollar stores and see if I can find any.

    They have whole bags of the ice cream ones – caramel (tastes like coffee), chocolate (tastes like tootsie rolls), vanilla, strawberry and orange sherbert. Actually like them – and better than the fruit ones.

    RESPONSE: I found some :)

    They probably don’t have the licorice ones this side of the ocean because most people don’t like it… :/

    I love licorice, and they would probably be the only skittles I bought, I don’t like the regular ones.
