Carnival Skittles Package
One of the newest limited edition candies on the block are the Carnival Skittles. They immediately stand out in their playful yellow wrapper amongst all the other candies and I was lucky enough to find them in a convenience store that is close to where I work.

The package happily displays the flavors of a “carnival”: Bubble Gum, Cotton Candy, Green Slushie, Candy Apple, and Red Licorice. The smell of the opened package is very sweet and fruity and it’s hard to distinguish any of the flavors in the aroma. The candies are really pretty; whoever chose the colors did a great job with the color palette.

Red Licorice (red): How can I describe this one except that it tastes of red licorice? Really. It has that mysterious blend of fruity/floral/sweet flavors that makes red licorice too addicting. The only thing that spoils the illusion is the texture. Yum!

Bubble Gum (pink): Very fresh and tastes exactly like pink bubble gum. I even get that cool, chewy texture sensation in my mouth as I eat it, but that could easily be my overactive imagination since the flavor is so real. I really enjoyed this one, which is odd since I’m not big on bubble gum.

Candy Apple (yellow): Sweet is the first flavor, but that soon mellows out into a fresh golden delicious apple taste. Don’t be fooled, this is not the same sort of apple flavor you find in gum and Jolly Ranchers. This isn’t tart or sour, but sweet and mild.

Green Slushie (green): This tastes of a very concentrated lemon lime soda. Starts out with a nice tart lime flavor and finishes out with a sweet aftertaste. It’s tangy, but in a subtle way, similar to how carbonation fizzes on your tongue.

Cotton Candy (blue): Very sweet and has a subtle berry aftertaste to it. Classic example of how a sugar candy manages to carry a slight flavor yet still taste of just sugar. It might be my imagination, but this really captures the tastes of pink fuzzy cotton candy.

Carnival Skittles Candy

I was very pleasantly surprised with these. I’m not a big Skittles fan to begin with, so I was pleased with how much I ended up liking these. I think it’s partly due to the fact that it’s hard to fail at flavoring candy after candy. So if you see these, be sure to give them a try. I’ll certainly be reaching for more!

    Oh my god. These look amazing! But I don’t really associate green slushies with carnivals. I would have done SnoCone, Funnel Cake, and… “Cakewalk” maybe.

    Reading this is almost like spoiling them for myself, but as if I wasn’t psyched enough for your incoming box Sera, well…now I’m…really psyched? Yeah, can’t wait!

    We have these in Australia also, same colours but the flavours are different – red is jam donut, pink is fairy floss (cotton candy), blue is bubble gum, green is toffee apple, and yellow is buttered popcorn. I’m not a fan of the bubble gum flavour either, but it’s not too bad in skittle form *grin*

    I too am not a fan of skittles, normally. I tried these at the reccomendation of my sister, and last night my husband found the large size bag of this flavor at Wal-mart. These skittles must have crack in them, because they are addicting.

    wow, the wierdest thing. I live In Newfoundland Canada, and we got the exact same flavours of skittles, but they wherent called carnival, nor where they in a yellow package. The packaging was actually black, and it just said “Limited edition flavours” All the names and flavours where identical though. Go figure.

    wow! I like the packaging and the sound of these…I’m from the UK so we only get the ‘Original Fruits’ and ‘Crazy Sours’ flavours. I wish they would bring these and the other varieties to this country I certainly would buy them!!!

    I once ate them, when a friend of mine bought them from the easters show. I live in Australia, by the way. But the flavours from the packaging was different.
    Pink Cotton Candy- The pink colour
    Green Apple Toffee-The green colour
    Jam Donunt-The red colour
    Bubblegum- The blue colour
    Popcorn-The yellow colour (A friend gorge herself silly, and so when she was offered more of the popcorn flavour, she refused…LOL)
