Supreme X Skittles candy collab
On 26 November, popular hype beast brand Supreme released their Fall-Winter 2021 range as a collaboration with the confectionery company Skittles.
Supreme X Skittles produces the original and wild berry flavoured sweets with usual packaging, aside from the Skittles logo which is swapped with the Supreme trademark title.
It doesn’t stop there. The collaboration also supplies a number of other items including a Skittles Varsity Jacket, available in a variety of colour options.
What is the price range and where to buy?
Supreme X Skittles sweets are originally sold at around $2 per pack (converted to £1.51). Don’t be fooled, shipping fees may shock you as some customers have reportedly paid $20 for postage.
Since the drop, re-sellers have begun pricing the Supreme Skittles at a much higher cost via platforms such as eBay. Twitter users have even reported having found the sweets being sold for more than $50 on re-seller sites.
Wondering where to buy? A TikToker named @prvt.selection found the Supreme sweets in local US stores such as 7-Eleven, The Local Shoppe, Flamingo Beer & Wine and RaceTrac.
Fans share their honest reviews online
A YouTube content creator named SHEROY shared his honest views on the candy collaboration, including an unboxing and taste test section.
SHEROY presents close up footage of the sweets, explaining that they have the usual Skittles logo printed onto each of the button-shaped pieces instead of the classic Supreme icon.
After trying the sweets, the creator confirmed that Supreme did not change the original Skittles formula and each of the flavours do in fact still taste the same.

Although, not everyone is as fond of the collab. Some social media users have taken to Twitter with their negative opinions, suggesting that people should not buy the Supreme Skittles.
