Well, kiddos…the new sour candy has shown up at Sweet River. It always seems to dominate our shelves during summer break. We also have a fresh shipment of what is, supposedly, the most sour candy in the world. Now, we know we’re not kids anymore, but, even as kids, this stuff would have scared us. (It petrifies us now.) Toxic Waste is so sour, in fact, that you’re actually advised to brush your teeth after eating it–you know, so the sour doesn’t strip the enamel from your teeth. (We’re wimps, and are still in the ‘woah, yellow Sour Patch Kids are really strong’, boat.) What we have heard about this stuff is that if you can make it through the first 30-45 seconds, the super sour coat dissolves, leaving a sweeter, much more pleasing, coat of candy underneath. We’ll let others test that theory though. ;)
If you’re feeling bored, or slightly insane–you could always try the ‘sour challenge’ with this stuff. Here are the rankings for the game:
15 Seconds: Total Wuss!
30 Seconds: Cry Baby!
45 Seconds: Toxie Wannabe!
60 Seconds: FULL TOXIE HERO!
This kid’s reaction…well, we feel him. Totally.
