It's a rainy, quiet Sunday today so we decided to do a little taste test. I saw these "Chocolate Skittles" in Wal-mart this afternoon and couldn't resist picking up a box. Now, I am not a fan of regular Skittles but anything that includes chocolate can't be all that bad, right?
The five flavors, going from left to right in the picture below, are:
We tasted them all. The vanilla tasted like sugar babies. Now, I love sugar babies but I'd rather have the real thing. The s'mores and chocolate caramel and chocolate pudding were just plain gross. The brownie batter tasted much like a tootsie roll at first. But the aftertaste was less than desirable. And, again, given the choice, I'd rather have the real thing.
The verdict in our house: if you're under 13, these are yummy. If you're older than 13, you'll probably want to stick to the Hershey's or the Dove or the Lindt or whatever REAL chocolate you enjoy most.
