Sour Patch Kids

Sour Patch Kids are a soft candy with a coating of sour sugar created by Paul Mihalick. When sour confectionery was first introduced it was not considered a serious product category, more of a children's fad. Success, however, rocketed it into the mainstream. One of the driving forces behind the brand's growth was its success in cinemas, and even now it is a staple for moviegoers. Today Sour Patch Kids is still a top selling sour brand in the North American marketplace. There are many different flavors, including regular, Watermelon, Fruits, Cherry, Sour Apple, Peach, Blue Raspberry, Xploders, and Extreme. The Sour Patch Christmas Kids, which are only sold around Christmas time, have been discontinued. There are also all sorts of berry-flavored sour patch kids. Sour Patch Kids are currently manufactured by Maynards.

Famous quotes containing the words kids, sour and/or patch:

    But it’s hard to farm
    Between the stumps:
    The cows get thin, the milk tastes funny,
    The kids grow up and go to college
    They don’t come back
    the little fir-trees do
    Gary Snyder (b. 1930)

    The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge.
    —Bible: Hebrew Ezekiel 18:2.

    Proverb, God’s reproach concerning the land of Israel.

    Whatever patch of limb
    he gazes on
    with unblinking eyes,
    I cover up
    but I want him to see it all anyway.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)
