Well, we did it. Humans have made the most disgusting possible thing. A chance to taste the rainbow once on the way down…and again, on the way back up.

Clearly, nobody asked for this. And Skittles and French’s are obviously in on the joke – and what will likely be a brilliant marketing campaign that leads to a new TikTok challenge.

But it got me thinking, what new flavors would people want Skittles to add? More specifically, what would New Englanders want in a new Skittle?

I’ll tell you one thing right now: I’d gobble up a gallon of Dunkin’ coffee-flavored Skittles. I’d probably down some maple Skittles, too. But what about the masses? What about you?

I went on social media and asked, and you answered with flavors New Englanders want to see in a new Skittle:


  • Chocolate
  • Mango
  • Margarita
  • Coconut
  • Butterscotch

  • Blood Orange
