While Mountain Dew Skittles is still, sadly, not a thing, Skittles Littles isn’t the only collaboration or new product that the brand has been busy with during 2023. While the candies weren’t white or gray as in years past, May saw the brand bring back its Pride packs to support the LGBTQ+ community. The company also donated $1 of each limited-edition four-ounce and 15.6-ounce Pride packs sold to GLAAD.
Also in May Skittles announced an addition to its Gummies lineup: Skittles Sour Gummies, an item that became many fans’ new favorite. “Thank you these are my favorite candy I’ve been waiting since November,” commented one person. “These are too good!!!!” said another.
Skittles’ collaboration with French’s mustard — just in time for National Mustard Day August 5 — no one saw coming. Even when French’s Twitter account teased the event with photos of mustard ice cream, mustard donuts, and mustard beer, no one predicted mustard Skittles could actually be a thing. Unlike other alliances, though, the mustard Skittles were only available to win while supplies lasted, or at one of French’s National Mustard Day events. With three more months still left in the year, it’s possible mustard Skittles won’t be the last new product or alliance we see this year.
