Skittles Announces New Flavor In Honor Of National Mustard Day
Skittles’ just announced their newest flavor, and it sounds a little iffy.
In honor of National Mustard Day, the famous candy brand announced that they will be releasing a limited-edition mustard flavored Skittle. And they’ve teamed up with French’s Mustard to do it. They are also giving fans a chance to win a fun-sized pack of the new flavor to try out. National Mustard Day is on August 5th this year.
Five years of mustard-flavored food.
French’s Mustard is actually the culprit behind this questionable merger. This is the fifth year in a row that America’s favorite mustard company has partnered with other brands to create a mustard-flavored delicacy. Last year they teamed up with Dough Doughnuts artisan donuts to make the French’s Mustard Donut. The year before that was French’s Mustard hot dog buns (a disappointingly safe choice). 2020 brought us the French’s Mustard Beer and 2019 French’s Mustard Ice Cream.
How to get the new mustard-flavor Skittles.
There are a few ways for fans to get their hands on the new candy, which a press released described as having a “tangy mustard flavor” and Skittles’ “iconic chewy texture” (cnn.com). If fans are lucky enough to live in Atlanta, New York City, or Washington D.C., they can just wait for the Mustard Mobile to roll up. They have a schedule of dates they are planning to stop by those cities and hand out samples. If you’re not in the eastern part of the country, you can go online and enter to win a bag.
French’s website will be offering these fun-sized packs all the way up to National Mustard Day (Aug 5, 2023). The French’s Instagram and Twitter pages, as well as Skittles Instagram and Twitter pages, are also pushing the promotion. And rumor has it that there might be freebies for followers of the page.
