Sour Patch Kids Candy Corn Review
Ahhh. It’s only August but I am already dreaming of the Fall. The hayrides, the apple cider, the changing leaves, apple picking, pumpkin spice everything, and Halloween candy. I want it all. Right now. Especially the candy. And thanks to Dollar General, I don’t have to wait until fall to get my hands on the candy! I stumbled across Sour Patch Kids Candy Corn and you bet I had to get it. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present you the first Halloween candy review of 2018 on Snack Gator! *cue the huge round of applause*
Looks can be deceiving though…These candy corns do not actually taste like candy corn! The consistency is also different compared to regular candy corn — they are a bit softer, yet harder than typical Sour Patch Kids candy. This is not a bad thing though since regular candy corn gets old so incredibly fast! The orange flavor tastes strikingly similar to an orange Airheads candy. The grape tastes a bit bolder than most grape candies these days and it’s delicious. The sour dusting on each pieces gives the flavor a nice balance of tang and sourness!
It’s worth noting that these are less sour than regular Sour Patch Kids…but it’s okay because the tang is more present in these and it’s simply perfect. You can easily say that this ‘candy corn’ isn’t really candy corn. It doesn’t have the same texture or flavor and nothing about it (besides the shape) reminds me of candy corn.
In summary, Sour Patch Kids is the best thing that has ever happened to candy corn. I finally found a way to enjoy candy corn this Halloween!
