Mars Wrigley treats fans to limited-edition SKITTLES for Halloween

New limited-edition SKITTLES Shriekers are hitting shelves nationwide, shocking taste buds around the country with a frightfully sour flavor.

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.”
