Has anyone tried these? I bought my father in law a bag of them at Easter and he likes them. However, he loves Skittles so I knew that he would like these. I haven't tried them but they look good!

I haven't seen the chocolate Skittles. Do they still have a fruit flavoured shell, or just an ordinary one, like Smarties? They sound good, and if I see them, I might pick a bag up to try. Thank you for sharing and Brightest Blessings.

The shell is a hard shell just like the original skittles but they are chocolate instead of fruit flavored.

My husband bought me some a month or so ago. I love skittles and I chocolate so he figured I'd love these. I have to admit I found them rather bland. Not very chocolatey at all.

Sorry to hear that.It seems as though most everyone who has tried these, don't like them. Maybe I will think about it before I buy them.

Maybe its just cuz they're skittles and they're suppose to be flavorful!

Look at the candy section of the store next to the other skittles. I hope you find them and like them.

Wow, I didn't realize they had chocolate skittles now! I guess I'm a little behind! lol I haven't seen them before, but I definitely would like to try them. I really like the regular skittles, so the chocolate ones sound pretty interesting. I'm kind of curious as to what they'd be like!

I work in a grocery store and I see all the new items fairly quickly. I think that these would be worth trying although not many here like them.

I have tried Chocolate Skittles. They have several flavors of chocolate in the same bag. I prefer the Smore's flavor. It is the one with the most flavor. As much as I love both Skittles and chocolate, I will not buy these for the 3rd time. If they had a deeper chocolate flavor maybe, but they don't.

Nope, but I hope they're as good as fruit flavored M&Ms :).

I have never seen fruit flavored M&M's. I would like to try those too.

I think I would have tried them. But, when I think of Skittles, I think of those chewy candies with fruit flavor. I usually eat those when I want something with sugar, but don't want chocolate. So, eating chocolate Skittles would have defeated that purpose. But, I would not be one to pass up anything with chocolate if it were offered to me.

I agree! I will try most anything chocolate as it is about my favorite candy. Let me know if you like them once you try them.
