Mars Wrigley has launched new limited-edition Skittles Shriekers for Halloween. 

Hidden inside each pack of Shriekers are super-sour Skittles that appear to look like the rest but bring an unpredictable punch of sour flavor to make even the most fearless candy fan shriek. 

Just in time for Halloween, Skittles Shriekers pair eerily well with the screams of horror film binges and haunted house visits, making it the perfect creepy candy for spooky season.

"Skittles is always looking for new ways to surprise fans with unexpected flavor experiences," said Tanya Berman, Mars Wrigley seasonal marketing lead. "This year, we focused on putting a new spin on a spooky treat, bringing better moments and more smiles to people as they gear up for the upcoming Halloween season."

Skittles Shriekers include five frightening flavors in each pack: 

  • Citrus Scream
  • Ghoulish Green Apple
  • Rattled Raspberry
  • Shocking Lime 
  • Spine-Tingling Tangerine

Skittles Shriekers are available now in retailers nationwide and come in 1.8-oz single packs, 3.6-oz. share size and 10-oz. medium fun-size laydown bags.
