Chocolate Skittles

    Big decision for me tonight and I'm hoping y'all can help.

    I like to have something sweet with my mid-shift coffee and most of the time opt for a bag of M&Ms or a cookie from Starbucks.

    I was in the breakroom earlier and noticed a new product in the vending machines: Chocolate Skittles. Intrigued, I did a google search and found this -- http://candyaddict.com/blog/2007/10/01/candy-review-skittles-chocolate-mix/.

    That's not exactly a vote of confidence, but wanted to see if anyone else has tried them before I plunk down my hard-earned $0.65.

    Somewhere Don Rickles is making a joke about Chocolate Skittles.

    I liked Chocolate Skittles....back when they were called M&Ms

    They'd probably be more like a tootsie roll, if you think about it. Skittles are a bit chewy, whereas M&Ms are not.

    I had them.

    They suck. They're awful. They're concentrated fail wrapped in the skin of a substandard candy. They're so bad they should be called Mondales. If you buy a bag, I will hunt you down and kill you.

    I've had better.

    Meat's recommendation notwithstanding, I don't see how you can pass up this opportunity. If they're good, you're a ground-breaker, a pioneer. If they suck, you're only out 65 cents. Go for it.

    That sound you hear is Mystery Meat starting up his car.

    Bad advice.

    They don't belong in the same vending machine.

    Anything to get this effin' taste out of my mouth.

    You're a real American hero, Sandman. Now I can safely go through life without trying Chocolate Skittles and know I'm not missing anything valuable. If we ever cross paths, the M&Ms are on me. 8)

    hmmm. It looks like they are just steal Jelly Belly flavors. I loved this line:
    Turning the package onto its back, I see it comes in five flavors: S’mores, Chocolate Pudding, Chocolate Caramel, Vanilla and Brownie Batter. **How they consider “Vanilla” a chocolate flavor is beyond me. I’m seeing loopholes already and I haven’t even tasted them yet!**

    When I looked at the package, my first thought was 'how is chocolate a vanilla flavor.
