Newark, NJ — New limited-edition Skittles Shriekers are hitting shelves nationwide from Mars Wrigley. According to the company, the product shockes the taste buds with a frightfully sour flavor. Hidden in each pack of Shriekers are super-sour Skittles that look just like the rest of the candies in the bag but bring an unpredictable punch of sour flavor.

“Skittles is always looking for new ways to surprise fans with unexpected flavor experiences,” says Tanya Berman, Mars Wrigley seasonal marketing lead. “This year we focused on putting a new spin on a spooky treat, bringing better moments and more smiles to people as they gear up for the upcoming Halloween season.”

Skittles Shriekers include five flavors in each 1.8-, 3.6- and 10-ounce pack — Citrus Scream, Ghoulish Green Apple, Rattled Raspberry, Shocking Lime and Spine-Tingling Tangerine.
