Advantages: A little bit of sourness per sweet
Disadvantages: Do not expect the same flavours as the originals
Having received a Tesco voucher for £0.60p off a bag of 174g of skittles, I went ahead and purchased the sour version of the sweet at the weekend.
The bag is the same as all those other brands that seem to be a craze at the moment. The old "grab bags" which you can take to the cinema. It comes with a sealable sticker on the side that allows you to reseal the bag to keep the product fresh. It never works for me and
Skittles Sours are your bog standard skittles. IE round sweets the size of slightly flattened pea. They come in different colours and normally different flavours like Strawberry or Orange etc.
Flavours include: Grape, Lemon, Strawberry, Orange and Apple.
Sours are no different, other than they remove the flavours and fill with a sour ingredient. I struggle to find the flavours though as the sourness (spelling?) takes over. They are not overly sour though, and do not find them anywhere near as the likes of Haribo sours. Which I think considering how many skittles you get in a pack of 174g (the larger share bags) is a good thing. You would not want to OD on them.
Only advice is that you do not get them mixed up with the original skittles as they look exactly the same.
Skittle Sours cost approximately £1.40 for a 200g bag. They also come in a 61g back but unknown cost.
Summary: A little sour sweet which is enough for any gob
