There’s nothing quite as deflating for a parent as giving your kid a treat and having them look back at you and tell you it’s terrible. Unless it turns out it actually IS terrible . . . which is what happened here.

A woman named Emily Massingill from Lumberton, Texas recently put up a post on Facebook about how angry she’d been getting because she would occasionally give her kids some Skittles as a treat, and her kids would complain they were terrible.

And after a month, she realized WHY . . . she was giving her kids ZOMBIE SKITTLES.

Skittles sells those around Halloween, and basically it’s a normal bag of Skittles . . . but with some that taste TERRIBLE and ROTTEN mixed in.

Emily says, quote, “They kept telling me they didn’t like the Skittles, and I told them to either eat them or they wouldn’t get any more candy ever again if they’re gonna be ungrateful.”
