7-Eleven Adds Skittles-flavored Slurpees

skittles-slurpee-02

With everyone saying a bittersweet goodbye to summer, 7-Eleven adds one sweet new Slurpee flavor to have the season go out with a candy-coated bang. The convenience store retailer is now serving a new Green Apple Skittles Slurpee flavor for patrons to get their fill of.

7-Eleven has been known to dabble in the hybridization of Slurpee and candy. Not too long ago, they introduced a line of Sour Patch Kids Slurpee flavors.

From September 12 through September 18, you can also buy one Slurpee and get the second free. Y’know, in case you need a sugar high on your commute to work.

You can find the Skittles Slurpee at all participating 7-Eleven locations nationwide.

Jimmy Kimmel Fools Juice Enthusiasts into Praising Tang and Skittles Water [WATCH]

Juce-Video

Cold-pressed juices have been never been more popular than in the last year. With health enthusiasts paying up to $8 for a bottle of fresh juice, it seems that price is not a factor when it comes to health.

Late-night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel has been known to prank his fans every now and then. In keeping with the juicing theme, Kimmel set up a fake shop in the heart of the Los Angeles Farmers market.

There, he offered four flavors from his faux brand, “Jüce,” to the market patrons. Among them Soul (Fun Dip), Cure (Tang), Detox (Creamsicles) and Rainbow (Skittles).

Offering no nutritional value, watch as folks give nothing but compliments to these fictional flavors. Some of the reactions to these sugary drinks are downright hilarious.

Seattle Butcher Makes ‘Beast Mode’ Sausage with Skittles

Apparently, the Seattle Seahawk’s running back Marshawn Lynch adores skittles.

So, in honor of Lynch and the Seahawks making it to the Super Bowl, a Seattle butcher has unleashed a Hot Skittles Sausage. Named “Beast Mode,” Blue Max Meats’ Skittles sausage ranks as one of the most inglorious mash ups we’ve seen. The recipe itself, is unabashedly straight-forward:

First, grab several hulking chunks of meat

Second, grind out the meat spaghetti

Third, mix in the spices and, yes, a bag full of Skittles

Finally, MAGIC

We apologize for any appetites we may have (most likely) ruined.

Skittles Swaps Green Apple Flavor with Lime, Changes ‘Original’ Rainbow

skittles

Someone in Skittles Candy Land really screwed up. I’m not looking to get anyone fired, but who the hell decided to change one of the original Skittles flavors? Apparently, after conducting some sort of poll, the team over at the Skittles Kingdom chose to replace the Lime-flavored green Skittle with Green Apple. In a move that has left many feeling as betrayed as when Monopoly changed the Iron to a Cat, the negative outpour should be cause for concern in the Rainbow Factory.

The green Skittle has always been Lime. It should always be Lime. This Green Apple Skittle just feels wrong. Who’s going to pal around with Lemon now? Is this meant to be some sort of affront to citrus lovers? It’s like when your favorite band loses an original member; it’s hard to retain the magic or ever get it back.

Since the decision, there has been much outrage. A Facebook group entitled, ‘Bring Back Lime Skittles,’ has begun. People have desperately turned to the Internet to find answers, and the candy blogosphere has erupted with outrage.

Simple suggestion for Skittles: Why not make a Green Apple flavor in a different shade of green? I’m sure the people over at Pantone would be happy to help.

The question now becomes, do the makers of Skittles have the integrity to no longer use the word ‘Original’ on their labels?
