Fizzl’d Fruit Skittles: Guest Review

March 29, 2010 at 12:39 pm 10 comments

There’s always something new at the candy shop. We have one of these around the corner, I think most of their money comes from cigarettes and Lotto, but they have the best selection of “different” sorts of kids candy. So it being spring break, DD wheedled me in the door. She was looking for Pop Rocks, but they didn’t have any, so the clerk suggested the new Fizzy Skittles. She decided they deserved a review on Candy Professor, so here it is, in her own words:

Fizzy fruits have the sensation of tasting a little sour. They are very fizzy, but underneath the fizz it tastes like fruits. I recommend these flavors: wild cherry, raspberry, melonberry, berry punch. These unusual candies taste nearly as close to Pop Rocks. I would eat them a little more than once in a while.

As you can see, we will likely have two candy blogs running out of this house pretty soon…

    Great review! I have these purchased but have not tried them yet.

    I think your camera phone photo looks great. I can see the product and I like how they are spilling out of the bag. Thank you for the compliment on my photos. I would have to say your writing is downright amazing when compared to mine though. :P I hope you do more reviews to go with all the great candy history.

      Yeah, I think that is pretty close to the actual ingredient list. I didn’t much care for them either, but I suspect the “target audience” is under 13, so maybe that’s ok.

    I am addicted to the Fizzy Skittles, but can no longer find them on the store shelves. Yes, I went to different stores, no luck! Where are my fizzy skittles???? I need them.

      Hmm, check out other comments on fizzy skittles, that might explain their disappearance!
      Have you tried a sort of home-brew version? I’m thinking make the outside of the skittle sticky, roll it in baking powder and sugar, and eat. That might work!

    i’ve tried them and they are amazing, way better than all of the other regular flavored skittles, i liked the blended and crazy core ones too, i like sour but they make your mouth feel funny and leave it feeling like you ate too much of some pineapple. the best part is when you get to end and there’s all that fizzy sugar at the bottom, i like to leave it on my tongue, kind of like PopRocks. btw they are not only for kids under 13. i’m 26 and i wish i could harness that fizzy powder and put it on all my fave candy, i love fizzy skittles

      You might like the “FIZZIES” drink tablets. Put one right on your tongue for total fizz experience.

    Please bring back fizzy skittles! I, amongst others, miss our favorite candy! I enjoyed the fizz along with the flavor. Its kind of like soda pop…only better.
