SPOTTED: Zombie Skittles

Zombie Skittles

“Most taste delicious but some taste like rotten zombie.” Two things: One, is “rotten zombie” redundant? A zombie, as portrayed in media, is the rotting flesh of a living being brought back to life. So “rotten” seems unnecessary. Two, everyone who’s anyone knows zombie tastes like chicken. (Spotted by Adam E at Sheetz.)

  1. That is redundant and rotting zombie is probably the worst flavor name I’ve ever seen. I don’t want to taste that.

  2. This is clearly a play on the Bertie Bott’s Harry Potter jellybeans. Which children still seem to purchase regularly despite having ‘vomit’ as a flavour.

  3. Bertie’s Bott’s jellybeans were marked so as long as you had good eyesight, you would only accidentally eat one of the bad flavors a few times while conning people into trying vomit or booger. This seems more random and harder to trick people into eating the ‘zombie’ pieces.
