I had the privilege of eating these skittles alongside the original kind of skittles, so I did a comparison of the two. The Darkside skittles are very different from the original kind, but not in a bad way. The flavors in these skittles are: Pomegranate, Dark Berry, Midnight Lime, Forbidden Fruit, and Blood Orange. I liked all of these flavors except the lime, which was disappointing to me because it was the flavor I was most excited about. The lime felt too fake tasting to me, and I didn't enjoy it. The other four flavors tasted great, especially the orange, and they each had a great flavor to them, much like other varieties of Skittles. You will not really miss other types of skittles when you eat this kind, because they will remind you of other kinds you have had in the past, such as the Wild Berry Skittles.
These Skittles are definitely worth a try, if for no other reason than the really cool flavor names and cool packaging.
I would recommend this type of Skittles candy to anyone that likes berry or fruit flavored candy or anyone that already likes Skittles and wants to try some new flavors from them.
