Skittles is releasing a ‘Rotten Zombie’ flavor and all we can say is try them if you dare!

Be careful if you are trying to taste the rainbow this fall, because you may get a taste of something rotten! Skittles is releasing a new flavor this Halloween called, Zombie Skittles — and according to the package, “most taste delicious but some taste like rotten zombie. Dare to try?”

The Zombie Skittles packs contain the usual suspects as far as flavors go — but with a spooky twist on the names! The candy packs are made up of a mix of five fruity flavors: Petrifying Citrus Punch, Mummified Melon, Boogeyman Blackberry, Chilling Black Cherry, and Blood Red Berry. And then of course, the rotten twist — there’s a rotten flavor hidden in every pack.  You won’t know which candy is the nasty-tasting one until it’s too late and you’re already mid-chew.

A mysterious black box arrived today. With nervous trepidation I slowly opened it and the putrid smell of rotten flesh emerged. Zombie flesh. I slammed the box shut and fled. Nausea overcame me as I gasped for fresh air. Ok ok Yea I’m kidding (maybe🧟‍♂️) Huge thanks to the folks @skittles for sending what I believe will be the hottest product ever for Halloween. My previous post explains what these are all about. I’m not going to crack a bag open yet.. I’d rather gather some friends and #daretherainbow. I’ve tried all the other “gross” flavors of candy with “moldy cheese”being my downfall. Wonder if rotten zombie will be worse 🤢 Stay tuned. #skittles #daretherainbow #zombies #zombieskittles #rottenzombie #marswrigleyconfectionery #yum #halloween #halloweencandy #doesfreshzombietastebetter

“Our fans love SKITTLES® not just for its delicious fruity flavors, but for the irreverence and sense of humor for which the brand is known,” said Rebecca Duke, SKITTLES® Senior Brand Manager, Mars Wrigley U.S. “This Halloween, we wanted to give our fans the ultimate rotten twist on the candy they know and love, challenging them to test their bravery over a bag of Zombie SKITTLES®.”

To add to the excitement, Skittles is also launching the #DareTheRainbow Challenge with the release of this new product. Here’s how it works — gather some of your friends, open up a pack of Zombie Skittles, and record everyone’s reactions! Share the video on Instagram using #DareTheRainbow and tag @skittles.
