What are Skittles Dips?
Skittles now come dipped in a creamy yogurt flavored coating.
How are they?
Do you enjoy “yogurt” coated raisins? Are you a Skittles fan? Well, that’s really all you have to ask yourself. If you answered “yes” to both questions like I did, then you’re in for a treat because I love these.
The creamy yogurt dip is very similar to what you’re probably expecting. It has that sugary white chocolate flavor and texture, which interact well with each of the classic Skittles flavors – Strawberry, Grape, Green Apple (R.I.P. Lime), Lemon, and Orange. I think I liked Orange best, but they’re all great.
There’s a nice thick layer of the coating that brings the size of each Skittle up from an M&M to slightly smaller than a peanut M&M.
Is there anything else you need to know?
Look, as with yogurt covered raisins, it’s best not to question the “yogurt” of all this. This “yogurt” isn’t turning your Skittles into a healthy snack. You hear “yogurt” and immediately think, “Wellll, look at me eating all healthy and responsible.” Still, we all know it’s essentially a sugar dip – an absolutely delicious sugar dip coating one of the greatest fruit-flavored candies in history.
Oh yeah, and I have to mention they look cool as hell, with little black “S’s” on the translucent white coating with each flavor’s color bleeding through. These rule on every level.
If I have one dumb complaint, it’s that the Skittles seem extra hard and chewy after the coating melts away. They’re amazing, but I still prefer the textural experience of yogurt covered raisins or those Welch’s yogurt coated fruit snacks.
I’ve long questioned why there have never been Chocolate Covered Skittles, and with these being called “Skittles Dips,” and not “Yogurt Dipped Skittles,” it leads me to believe there might be plans to expand the product line.
If so, awesome, if not, I’m just pumped these exist. Make sure to pick these up.
