Review: French's Mustard Skittles

French's Mustard Skittles packaging/pouch.

French's Mustard Skittles are yellow Skittles candies with the flavor of French's Mustard. They're not available at retail but they're giving them out at pop-up events in three cities as well as through a sweepstakes.

I received these courtesy of French's.

Out of the bag, French's Mustard Skittles have a faint mustard-y aroma. They look more or less like Lemon Skittles, which means, if you're feeling mischievous, you can sneak these into a bag of regular Skittles for someone to discover later.

They have the same elements as regular Skittles, including the chewy center, crispy shell, and sweet and tart fruity base. However, overlaying that base is the uncanny taste of mustard--horseradish-like and tangy with a spicy mustard kick that takes a moment to hit you. It's weirdly impressive and puzzling combination.

At the end of the day, I can't say that I enjoyed French's Mustard Skittles as I did not like them at all. They're definitely one of those crazy novelty flavors for people who really, really like mustard or are eating for a dare of some sort. Basically, you can eat these on a hot dog in place of both relish and mustard.
