Skittles Dips Yoghurty Coated
This is shaping up to be quite a packed year in terms of new product releases thus far; we've had various new cookie and ice cream varieties, various Cadbury products (including the new Choose a Flavour vote), Dark Milk Galaxy bars and now these...Skittles Dips! I had heard rumours about these some time ago and that they would be white chocolate coated, but it seems something must have changed along the way and they went with yoghurt instead. Perhaps a wise choice as white chocolate mixed with Skittles would be just a bit too sickly!
These are simply regular fruity Skittles with a yoghurt flavour coating and are available in Asda stores for £1.
The yoghurt coating is pretty thick, moreso than I was expecting and has a familiar sweet yoghurt aroma.
I was expecting these to be awful if I'm honest, but to my surprise they weren't too bad! They're not quite as tangy as expected, which is a good thing, they're more of a sweet yoghurt "flavoured" coating that somehow works and mixes with the fruit flavours to make them a mix of creamy and fruity...somewhat like a fruit yoghurt. Albeit more artificial and sickly, of course!
Although these surprised me, being honest I can't see them being popular with everyone. They're a bit marmite in that the flavour is probably too "out there" and unusual. Still, I liked them and it's nice to see something a bit different from Skittles rather than just another flavour variation. That being said, there's a new Skittles Smoothies variety due in Asda this week...stay tuned for a review of that!
