SAN ANGELO— A classic candy is getting a "different" flavor for a limited time.
In honor of National Mustard Day on August 5, French’s Mustard and Skittles are partnering up to create a limited-edition mustard flavored skittle!
In honor of National Mustard Day on August 5th, French's® and SKITTLES® have teamed up to release this summer's tangiest yellow candy: the first-ever mouthwatering French's Mustard flavored SKITTLES. Fun-sized packs will be given away for free while supplies last via an online sweepstakes and at in-person pop-up events in Atlanta, Washington D.C., and New York City.
"From Mustard Ice Cream to last year's viral Mustard Donuts, this year marks the fifth time French's has gone all out with unique, flavorful innovations to celebrate National Mustard Day. With the yellow holiday landing on August 5th, we knew we had to outdo ourselves," said Valda Coryat, North America Vice President of Marketing for McCormick & Company.

Consumers will also have a chance to taste French's Mustard SKITTLES and snag some branded swag when French's hits the road on a multi-stop tour up the East Coast in the 'Mustard Mobile', a bright yellow custom-designed vintage bus complete with giant Mustard SKITTLES on top.
