Skittles Sour “Shriekers” Coming for Halloween 2021

Skittles is getting into the Halloween spirit this year with new specially marked packages that include “Shriekers,” which are advertised as being “so sour they will make shriek.”

The Halloween-themed packaging include orange bags with a skeleton/reaper exclaiming “Shriekers!”, and the tagline “Beware! Try if you dare.”

Apparently the super-sour candies will look the same as the traditional Skittles candies, so, much like the “Zombie” Skittles from a few years ago, you won’t know if the next piece is a Shrieker until you bite into it.

Skittles “Shriekers” are expected to arrive in stores this fall.
