skittles is now a lip balm.

You can get chap stick in flavors like Root Beer, Dr. Pepper, and Cherry Coke. So really, is it that big a stretch to get them to taste like candy?

Target declares "no!" and releases an eight-pack of lip balm this week that's created by Skittles.

The sticks come in "original," "tropical," and "wild berry" flavors, and are created by the folks at Bonne Bell, so don't be surprised if they have a little bit of glitter in their formulas.

And just in case you're wondering, we already checked - no, there are no Starburst or Sour Patch Kids lip balms at Target... yet.

Skittles Lip Balm, $8.79 per pack (eight per pack), at Target.
