These Skittles Fruits Chewies are, very possibly, not Skittles at all. They’re naked! By which I mean, they’ve lost their shell. Is a Skittle still a Skittle if there’s no crunchy sugar coating?
The flavours in the Skittles Chewies pack are orange, lime, lemon, blackcurrant and strawberry.

Straight away then, they look different to normal Skittles.
You can see the moulding on each sweet – it’s kinda rough and almost ‘unfinished’ looking.
Flavour wise? Well I’m not a Skittles connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination, but they do pretty much taste like original Skittles.
I think the flavour is slightly lighter than in a fully dressed Skittle but it’s still recognisable.
Texture is obviously where the differences are going to be… And honestly, I miss that sugar shell.
These are still little chewy nuggets of sugar, but to me they’re more like Fruitella or Starburst pips.
Overall, for me, these Skittles Chewies are just average. I can see they’re going to have their fans, but I’m not one of them.
