John Egan is a comedian from Green Bay in Wisconsin and when he is not making audiences laugh their socks off he is trying all the new weird and wonderful food and snacks that America has to offer! We have teamed up with John to bring you on this magical and sometimes tasty food journey!
We are going to delve into the facts and origins of the food and then will have a One Take Review by John. So, ladies and gentlemen welcome to the world of TASTE OF STATES.
Sweet Heat Skittles and Starburst
This week we look at a set of sweets that are set to make your tastebuds tingle and your mouth set a little bit on fire. They made quite an entrance to the world in May 2017 when they were announced at the Sweets and Snacks Expo in Chicago and now they are here to challenge the world of the sweet – The Sweet Heat Skittles and Starburst.
The sweets come in a variety of flavours; the Skittles have the tastes of Fiery Watermelon, Blazin’ Mango, Flamin’ Orange, Sizzlin Strawberry and Lemon Spark. The Starbursts on the other hand have very similar flavours with Fiery Watermelon, Strawberry Mango, Flamin’ Orange and the different flavour to Skittles – Pipin’s Pineapple.
People say that the heat builds up gradually and hits you as you swallow the sweets. Is this true and is this what they actually taste of? We sent John on the case to find out!
