Skittles Blenders

It's been way too long since my last post, but I'm back and there is lots of great candy to get to so let's do this.

Introducing new Skittles Blenders.  Oh Skittles, dear sweet Skittles.  Sometimes all it takes is one bad flavor to spoil the whole batch, yeah I'm talkin' about you Melon Berry Burst, but I'll get to you later, good things first.

The idea behind the Blenders is that they are "blended fruit flavors."  Let's look at the combos offered in a very particular order (best to worst):

Cherry Tropicolada - The red one. Tastes like cherry Lifesavers with a hint of coconut.  Yum.

Strawberry Lime Blast - The pink one.  The lime flavor isn't really strong, but the strawberry is pleasant with a tiny tang of sour.  Good.

Watermelon Green Apple Freeze - The green one.  I don't know where the "freeze" comes into play.  Is it supposed to taste like a slushie?  This one reminds me of a green apple Laffy Taffy.  Nice.

Mango Lemonade Freeze - The orange one.  On first chew, I couldn't really tell what flavor this was supposed to be.  However, the more I ate the more I could taste the lemonade flavor.  The mango is missing.  Eh.

Melon Berry Burst - The blue one.  This was my least favorite flavor and unfortunately the most plentiful color in my bag.  Why do candy companies insist in making melon flavored candy?  They are never good.  This one tastes like cucumbers and parsley.  Don't eat it first or it will ruin your whole palette.  Bleh.
