When it comes to classic candy choices, not many options rank above Skittles. The fruity, chewy candies have been around for years, and you know exactly what you're getting when you buy them. Over the years, there have been a couple of new flavors launched by the company, like Wild Berry and Sour, but it usually all comes back to the classic fruit flavors.

Maybe Skittles saw how successful M&Ms have been with their flavors, though, because they've unveiled three new flavor runs for summer, but you'll have to make sure to get them quick...they're only around for the summer!

Freeze Pop

Nothing says summer like a nice freeze pop, and Skittles knows that. They're unveiling a combo of flavors that's sure to hit your nostalgic nerve. You'll be getting Blue Raspberry, Lemon, Grape, Orange and Strawberry flavors, but you'll only be able to get them at Dollar General stores in 2oz bags.

Sour Wild Berry

Why mess with a good thing, right? Skittles already had Wild Berry and Sour combinations, so putting those two together is a bit of a no-brainer! The flavors will be Sour Strawberry, Sour Berry Punch, Sour Wild Cherry, Sour Melon Berry and Sour Raspberry, and you'll be able to get them at Dollar General Stores in 12 oz bags.


Who doesn't love a good mystery? While the flavors for these Skittles are known, what you don't know is which Skittle will give you that taste. Usually, the color of the Skittle matches the flavor, but that's not the case for this batch! Try and see if you can figure out which colors are Alter Ego Orange, Cryptic Citrus, Sneaky Strawberry, Undercover Apple and Raspberry Ruse. Hint: it probably won't be what you think! Skittles imposters will only be available at Walmart stores in 4oz and 14oz bags.

Everyone loves a good handful of Skittles, and now you can love them in even more flavors!
