Jolly Rancher Screaming Sours

I bought a bag of Jolly Rancher Screaming Sours, or at least I think I did. While organizing my closet, yet another task/excuse to put off completing my graduate school applications, I stumbled across the candy.

I know I didn’t buy them in Texas, so they must have somehow sneaked their way with me from Los Angeles, making them at least a year old. Rather than treat this as an ew… old candy moment, I figured all the preservatives in a gummi candy must still make them edible. You never know – this could be like finding a twenty-dollar bill in an old pair of jeans.

Watermelon: This piece has minimal sour strength, but enough to notch it above tart. The flavor is indicative of watermelon, if watermelons actually tasted like the hard candy version of this flavor, but a tad bolder.

Apple: The apple here is tart, not sour, and reminiscent of the hard candy version. For all you twenty-one and over Candy Addicts out there, this reminded me lot of DeKuyper Sour Apple Pucker Schnapps, which has that tart apple quality, but is too sweet to be taken on its own.

Orange: This piece is zesty and sour, but not acidic. It tastes like orange juice, but with a candy makeover kick. Is that a good thing? Well, I usually dislike orange candies, but this was actually my favorite of the four so I suppose it is; in fact, I actually wish they would include this flavor as a hard candy version in their classic lineup.

Cherry: Not sour by any means, resembling the hard candy counterpart to a T, but with a woodsy cherry flavor slightly bolder than the classic.

As far as the gummi quality goes, these were not bad. They were slightly mushed and sticky, but I attribute that to being positioned at the bottom of a box of junk in my closet. I did enjoy how they resembled the fruits they were attempting to portray, which is aesthetically more pleasing than the hard candy blocks.

These are a toss-up if you are considering buying them over the Jolly Rancher hard candy. There really isn’t much of a difference in flavor between the two because the sour/tartness in the gummi is rather mild, similar to how the classic retains a slight sharpness without trying; it all comes down to preference of whether you like to suck on or chew your way through candy.

    These candies were pretty sour when I bought them (fresh bag). I love them but the sour sugar slimes up and diminishes after time.

    I love screaming sours. I get them at Walmart and/or Target and some gas stations around the Houston area.
