Candy Hunting - New Products from Wrigley

This is the first of several posts detailing the new confectionery offerings that I learned about at the Sweets & Snacks Expo. Wrigley has a multitude of new products they will be introducing within the next year. While most of the introduction dates are listed as 2015, Wrigley and Mars products have a tendency to appear on shelves months before their intended release. For example, Skittles Desserts and Starburst Fruity Slushies were available in Fall 2013, while their introduction date is technically 2014. 


Skittles Orchards

Introduction date: 2015

Flavors include red apple, cherry, lime, peach, and orange. 

Skittles Orchards will be available in single serve bags (56.7 g), share size bags (113.4 g), theater boxes (99 g), and lay down bags (396.9 g). 



Skittles Flavor Mash-Ups

Introduction date: 2015

Flavors include Skittles Wild Berry (raspberry, strawberry, wild cherry, berry punch, and melon berry) and Tropical (pineapple passionfruit, banana berry, mango tangelo, kiwi lime, and strawberry starfruit). 

Skittles Flavor Mash-Ups will be available in stand-up pouches (255.2 g) and peg bags (204.1 g). 

These are similar to M&M's Mix-Ups (milk chocolate, peanut, and crispy M&M's in one bag), which are available in the UK.

  1. Skittles Orchards means Lime is coming back
    And I like Wild berry and Tropical, so both varieties (10 flavors) in one bag sounds good
