No one makes kind of adorable, Seahawks Skittles girl sad on my watch and gets away with it. Am I happy that Richard Sherman and the 12s are crying in their Starbucks this morning? You’re God damn right.  But this girl is cute as a button, especially with that Skittles eye-black on.

Do I think red eye-black doesn’t do a very job of preventing glare?  Of course!  But I can overlook that stuff in the name of cuteness.  For example, I hate cats with every fiber of my being. But I would have to be a cold-blooded asshole to hate kittens.  So I can forgive wearing red eye-black on the biggest game of the year, just because this girl is a legit cutie pie.  That being said, I really hope she isn’t crying on the shoulder of some emo Seattle-ite.  Is that even what they are called?  There are more questions than answers after that Super Bowl.

I can’t lie, the marketing department at Skittles suckered me in with their Darkside flavors.  If you want to be a bad boy, you have to eat Darkside Skittles.  There is just no two ways about it.  Anyway, here are the flavor reviews:

Pomegranate

Rating: 3.8/10.  If Skittles came out with cough medicine, this flavor would fit right in.  But alas, it doesn’t.  Also, I hate how everyone says they love pomegranate just because it is a trendy fruit.  If Pomegranate was always grown in the good ol’ US of A instead of “exotic” China, we wouldn’t even feed it to our pets.  Just a terrible fruit.

Midnight Lime

Rating: 7.8/10.  Lime isn’t the best flavor in the world, but it beats the hell out of green apple.  When lime was in the package, you could eat a few Skittles at once and have a nice medley of flavors.  Now if you do that, you have green apple dominate your taste buds.  Going from lime to green apple is like when the Bills went from Doug Flutie to Rob Johnson.  Johnson was the bigger name, but Flutie was the scrapper that made everything somehow work.

Dark Berry

Rating: 6.2/10.  Meh as meh can be.  

Blood Orange

Rating: 8.4/10.  Did Skittles take regular orange and just dye it to be a little red?  Probably.  Can my small brain figure out that this is all a marketing ploy?  Probably not.

Forbidden Fruit

Rating: 7.2/10.  If something is forbidden, it should be incredible.  We all know what the forbidden fruit was in the Garden of Eden.  This was not as good as that forbidden fruit.  

Overall Pack Rating: 6.7/10.  Basically crap.  Back to the drawing board, John Skittles (who Skittles are named after)*.
