Mars Wrigley launch Skittles Giants which are three times larger than originals

The company behind some of our favourite sweet treats Mars Wrigley have made a big announcement.

Later this week, the brand will be launching Skittles Giants – which are three times as large as the normal variety.

The delicious new giant Skittles promise to deliver “mouth-watering fruity flavour”.

So prepare to “taste the rainbow” in a mammoth way.

The Skittles Giants are: “softer on the inside, bigger on the outside and jam packed with delicious fruit flavour”.

They’ll be available in four pack sizes – between 45g and 170g – so you can share them out with friends or keep them as a post-lunch snack.

Well, or you can eat the big bag all to yourselves like we do.

Victoria Gell, portfolio director said: "Skittles Giants are bigger, softer and packed full of delicious fruity flavour! I can't wait for people to try them!"

The new Skittles will be on sale at all major retailers.

The 45g bag will sell for 49p RRP and the 170g pack will cost £1.49.

That’s not the only news from Mars Wrigley this March.

The brand announced that they would be changing Starburst sweets back to their original name – Opal Fruits.

The treats had their name changed over 20 years ago in 1998.

Now, the confectionary company has claimed that selected shops would sell the sweets branded once again as Opal Fruits.

While the change will only occur for a limited time period, those hoping to take a trip down memory lane can hark back to happier times.

The press release stated: "The treat will be offered in its original flavour format.”

This means that the lemon-and-lime flavoured chew will now become two separate flavours: lemon and lime.

The citrus flavours were originally merged to create space for the blackcurrant flavour.

You can buy Opal Fruits for £1 a pack at B&M, Home Bargains, Iceland and Poundland.
