Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
It is not everyday that you can see a candy company release a treat that tasted foul on purpose but that is exactly what Skittles have done for Halloween and they even bought them back last year as well due to them becoming a fan favourite.
Zombie Skittles are the perfect sweet for Halloween as they mix the sweet flavour of the brand and mic them with a blend of rotten ones as well. A packet can be purchased for $2.28 from Walmart and has many flavours in the packet – petrifying Citrus Punch, Mummified Melon, Boogeyman Blackberry, Chilling Black Cherry, Blood Red Berry and Rotten Zombie flavours. There is no real description as to what the zombie flavours actually are but apparently they taste of rotten eggs drenched in garlic.
There are a lot of mixed reviews online but there are a lot of them that state they are not a fan of the actual Zombie flavours, one review said they actually ‘traumatized’ them.
