It seems like everyone wants to join in on the gummy candy craze in recent years, including Skittles and Airheads. Which one of them does it best, Airheads gummies or Skittles gummies? We made it our mission to attempt to answer that question, and we came to a shockingly hard conclusion. Keep reading to find out more!
Airheads Gummies Review
Airheads gummies deserve points for innovation and creativity, because they turn eating into a whimsical play experience. Rather than a single, uniform shape, these gummies come with a variety of shapes in a single bag.
The shapes include balloons, bow ties, hats, mustaches, and more. Plus, they come in a mix of classic Airheads flavors, such as blue raspberry, cherry, watermelon, orange, strawberry, and the iconic mystery flavor.

The flavor of Airheads gummies is sweet and mild, a little on the generic gummy bear side. Overall, the ability to make your own gummy balloon head creation and then enjoy the variety of fruity flavors eaten together makes up for the average gummy taste.
We will buy more of these in the future. Who doesn’t like dressing up gummy balloon heads with multicolored gummy gear? They are as fun to play with as they are to eat!
Original Skittles Gummies Review
As soon as you open a bag of these, you are greeted with the familiar, sweet smell of fruity Skittles candy. They also resemble their candy counterparts in appearance, and come in the same five flavors – grape, lemon, green apple, strawberry, and orange – as well.
A rainbow of color!
The taste test proved to be shocking. We are not sure how Skittles pulled it off, but they nailed the flavor of these. Every single gummy was packed with delicious flavor and tasted exactly like a Skittle. When eaten a few at a time, they brought that delicious, fruity taste that Skittles fans know and love., and it lingered on our tongues for quite a while.
Aside from their amazing flavor, Skittles Gummies didn’t provide much of a unique take on the gummy eating experience like Airheads did with their gummies. With flavors as iconic as Skittles, perhaps they don’t feel that they really need a creative spin to help sell their gummies? I mean, we will buy them for the Skittles flavor alone!
If you are a fan of Skittles, you definitely need to try Skittles gummies. For an added bonus, they come in some of the same varieties as Skittles, including Original and Wildberry.
