We have taken Skittles and transformed them with freeze drying.
The freeze dried texture of these lollies is amazing. The inside of the Skittle explodes out of the shell and becomes crispy and aerated instead of chewy. My kids have told me these are their favourite freeze dried treat so far!
Try them yourself.
Limited batches only so we're sorry if this is sold out
Contains Freeze Dried Skittles Original Fruit Flavour. Approximate weight 50-55g (weight may vary due to freeze drying process). This will be approximately 55-60 Skittles.
Packaged in a zip lock pouch for added freshness.
As it can take up to 30 hours to freeze dry between 2-4kg of products, quantities are limited and there may be a wait on products or they may be sold out for some time if demand is high. We also freeze dry fruit for our own chocolates so production is limited for other items.
Keep out of direct sunlight and keep sealed, once opened, to keep the freeze-dried freshness. If they are left to absorb moisture, they will lose their crunchiness or the form they freeze dry into.
Ingredients: Sugar, Glucose Syrup, Vegetable Oil, Food Acids (330, 331), Thickener (Dextrin), Modified Corn Starch, Flavour, Colours (171, 129, 102, 110, 132, 133), Glazing Agent (903).
Note: Our understanding is this product is Vegan and Gluten Free. However, Skittles do not make this claim on their packaging so we are labeling them as no added gluten and no added dairy so please make your own assessment of this product if you require a Vegan or Gluten Free product.
Bag size and weight varies from item to item. Freeze dried items do lose weight from their original form and this can be from 10% to 80% depending on the food and water content.
Freeze Dried products are very fragile, resulting in possible breakages during transport which we are unable to refund for.
About Freeze Drying
Freeze drying food changes the structure, texture and flavour intensity of most foods. With lollies, there can be an exciting additional transformation in the size or structure of some lollies. We have hand picked lollies that we thought were so delicious and had such a good texture, that you would love them too.
Freeze drying changes the structure of a food by removing all water content. It is the process of freezing foods then drying them under a vacuum so the moisture content changes directly from a solid to a gaseous form and skipping the liquid state food would normally go through when thawing.
Freeze dried food maintains its original size and shape with a minimum of cell rupture and preserves the food. With some lollies, it can have an extra reaction of increasing the size of the product. This makes for some interesting and exciting results.
