Skittles Giants Are Arriving In The UK And Are Three Times The Size
Proving the world isn't all doom and gloom - Mars Wrigley has announced that Giant Skittles will be launching later this week. What a time to be alive.
For those of you who don't want to just 'taste the rainbow' but be smacked around the head by it, the new sweets will be three times the size of the normal ones and promise to deliver a 'mouth-watering fruity flavour'. Sounds good to me.
Skittles Giants will be 'softer on the outside, bigger on the outside and jam packed with delicious fruit flavour - best of all they will be available in four pack sizes, from 45g to 170g, so whether you're a glutton, want to share or just want to give the new sweeties a try, you're covered.
Victoria Gell, portfolio director said: "Skittles Giants are bigger, softer and packed full of delicious fruity flavour! I can't wait for people to try them!"
Skittles Giants will be on sale later this week in all major retailers. The packs RRP between 49p for a 45g bag and £1.49 for a 170g pouch.
The new release comes after Mars Wrigley shared the good news that it would be changing Starburst back to Opal Fruits.
The chewy sweets had a rebrand all the way back in 1998, becoming Starburst, but now the confectioner has revealed it will harking back to the good old days with selected shops offering Opal Fruits for a limited time.
And it's not just the name, according to a press release "The treat will be offered in its original flavour format," a press release said, adding that this includes the separate lemon and lime sweets, which were merged with the introduction of Starburst to make way for a blackcurrant flavour. Be still my beating heart.
The sweet treats went on sale at the end of February for a quid and were available exclusively from Poundland before landing in other discount stores such as B&M, Home Bargains and Iceland.
Hannah Jackson, senior brand manager at Mars said: "I'm delighted that Opal Fruits are making a special return to British shelves!
"Bringing back the original flavours is sure to bring a smile to the faces of retro treat lovers across the nation.
"Be quick, though - they won't be available for long!"
