Great Debate: Skittles or Starbursts, a new look at two favorites

Back in December of 2017, Wrigley released a kicking new flavor of their starburst and skittles candy brand. It is called Sweet heat, and as implied by the name, it is a spicy and sweet twist to the candy brand.

The individual flavors of the starburst and skittles pack are relatively the same in comparison with some differences. The starburst candy consists of Flamin Orange, Fiery Watermelon, Strawberry Melon, and Pipin Pineapple. The Skittles candy consists of Fiery Watermelon, Flamin Orange, Lemon Spark, Sizzlin Strawberry, and Blazin Mango.

Although, the flavor spicy and sweet has been used several times on many different foods and snacks, it has yet to be done here. Now that it is released, it is time to get consumers’ opinions. People were asked to have a taste then give a brief description of the experience and give it a rating out of five.

Consumer review:

This is simply a compilation of reviews from consumers in addition to my own.



“The candy shell prevents the spicy sensation from kicking early on.” 3/5

“Couldn’t distinguish the flavors by sight only. Colors only differed slightly when close up.”
