Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Skittles Crazy Cores Confirmed sighting: Skittles Crazy Cores
Posted: 20:43 Mon 01-Aug-2011. Price: 55p/55g. Location: Co-Op, Kentish Town. Nutritional unusualness: "Surprising flavour combos [then, in smaller print] Product may contain an uneven mix of flavours".
Snackspot reports: Regular readers may remember that "Jamie Campbell" previously spotted these in Toronto a couple of years ago (though who knows how long we'll have to wait for other Canadian varieties like Fruit and Creme, Tangy Tropical, Berry Explosion, Double Sours, Skittles Bubblegum and the ever-appetising Chocolatey Eruption).

I automatically assumed these might have gone the route of the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled range and taste like things eaten by the mentally ill (including "vomit", "baby wipes" and "dog food" in Jelly Belly's case), but Foodstuff Finds reckons they're Mango Peach, Melon Berry, and Strawberry Watermelon, plus nature's own Blue Raspberry Lemon, and Cherry Lemonade. As it turns out, the flavours are more potent than Guzzle Puzzle's infinite customisation can offer, but still weird enough that, if you're eating them in a darkened cinema for instance, you can still convince yourself that there's also a banana combo in there somewhere.

...In other exotic cocktails: Foodstuff Finds won the race to review the "good strong flavours" of Cadbury-Trebor-Bassetts' Olympic Jelly Mascots (currently 1, exclusive to Sainsbury's?); and Gobble Monkey has braved the horrors of Morrisons No Added Sugar Marshmallow Squash, a possible binge-drinking alternative if you're not old enough to sample Bulmers' Crushed Red Berries and Lime No. 17 Cider or 3 new "curious" kinds of Magners (in Pear and Ginger, Spiced Apple and Honey, or Spiced Apple and Rhubarb, all around 2.25).

Comment: Berry skittles did exist in the uk for a while around 2005, they were in a purple bag and I found them at a petrol St in Leatherhead - though they could've been an import.
