Skittles And Starburst Are Getting a Bizarre New Flavor Update

You may love your pink Starbursts, but soon you'll have some interesting new flavor options to choose from as the candy gets a bizarre new flavor update.

Both Starburst candies, as well as and Skittles will soon come in "Sweet Heat" varieties. This means you'll find flavors like Pipin' Pineapple, Lemon Spark, Fiery Watermelon, and Flamin' Orange. If you love spicy foods, the unusual flavor mixtures sound like something worth trying. Look for the Sweet Heat varieties in stores starting this winter. They'll have a black wrapper decorated with flames to denote the spicy goodness waiting to be devoured inside.
