Chocolate Skittles?


Since anyone who knows me even remotely knows that I have a sweet tooth, & in the past I've blogged about everything from chocolate covered Altoids to chocolate covered edamame, I feel an obligation to introduce you to chocolate skittles! I stumbled across these by accident while out on a Sunday drive with the family. I don't know if they're available everywhere yet, but I found them at a little gas station midway between Los Angeles & Santa Barbara. They come in a five flavor mix, including flavors like brownie batter & s'mores. I can't say that I love them, but I do like them! I volunteer at a therapeutic riding stable every week & I like to keep snacks in my car to nibble between the lessons. I always have those little Trader Joe's individual packets of raw almonds & a bottle of water, but what I really want is a little bit of chocolate. The problem is, most of the year in California, chocolate melts. Chocolate Skittles seem to hold up to heat.

Looks yummy!

Sorry about the goof with the name. Too many pains and not enough with name checking. I do apologize!

Nice to find another pro wrestling fan. :) Added one of my current indy wrestling fans for today's entry.

I haven't seen the chocolate ones before. I like the Tropical ones. Skittles have their own website.

I enjoyed my visit to your site. My best friend has a Leonberger dog.

Chocolate Skittles are HORRIBLE. I didn't like them and my kids wouldn't touch them. My daughter loves all the other Skittles. I say STAY AWAY!

I'll try them if I can find them. In other chocolate news, Starbucks (another of your favorites) just added 2 more hot chocolate flavors (for those of use who don't drink coffee or tea). I didn't think much of their caramel mix, but I look forward to trying the hazelnut. I love their standard signature flavor.
