Crazy Sour Candy Face

Lately, I’ve been really craving sour candy but it seemed that none of the typical sour candies I found in stores were sour enough. I don’t know the reason I had this craving–maybe it means I have a vitamin c deficiency or something–but whatever the reason, it lead me on a quest for the most sour candy I could find.

I wanted to find some quantitative comparison of the various sour candies available. I thought it would be nice if there was some measure of sourness like the Scoville scale for peppers but it doesn’t seem there is. I wonder how hard it would be to develop one.

What I did find was this blog called ‘Sour Candy Reviews’. The blog is run by a woman named Robin and she also has a YouTube channel featuring video reviews of various sour candies. The video reviews are great to watch so if you get a chance search YouTube for sourcandyreviews and watch them.

One of the candies that Robin reviewed is called Toxic Waste. And she gave it a rating of Ultimate Sour so it seemed promising. I didn’t know where I could buy these around here so I went to the manufacturers site and found that they were available at Walgreens stores. I drove to the nearest Walgreens and they did have them so I picked up a package of Toxic Waste and I also picked up a package of Warheads candies which are another extreme sour candy.

I decided to document my experience in the following video. In this video, I try two different Toxic Waste flavors and then a lemon Warheads candy. If you are looking to see a crazy sour face, I would say the third one is really the money shot. It also seems that I’m not the only person who has done this, because there are quite a few videos of people doing the same thing in my related videos. So this could be a youtube phenomenon that hasn’t quite taken of yet.

Hope you enjoyed that.

  1. When I was in Jr. High School, there grew a huge demand for sour candies and, more specifically, sour gumballs. This interest seemed to sprout almost overnight. I found a place that would sell the gumballs in bulk and began purchasing them by the bag to sell to my class-mates. Gum was contraband in school and I hustled those things off like crack cocaine.

    Eventually, a kid in one of my classes just brought in some straight citric acid. The first time that he brought some in, it had been transferred into a tiny little Tabasco bottle and everyone dared each other to try it. At one point I poured the whole thing onto my tongue and couldn’t take anything for the rest of the day. You could obtain a fairly large bottle of the powder at the local grocery store. Without sugar or candy involved, it’s about as strong as you’re going to get.

  2. Hello blogger, i found this post on 11 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by hi bounce rate.
    This is very important ranking factor. One of the biggest
    reason for high bounce rate is due to visitors hitting
    the back button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the search results your posts and pages will end up, so having reasonably low bounce rate is important for improving your rankings naturally.
    There is very handy wordpress plugin which can help you.
    Just search in google for:
