What’s the best Sour Patch flavor there is…

Below, I’ve attempted to rank the best according to my tastebuds.

#5 – Watermelon from Sour Patch Watermelon

A favorite for some, I honestly have never loved Sour Patch Watermelon like some. That being said, you gotta respect the classics.

I’ve admitedly eaten more than my fair share of these. They are addicting and certainly delicious. And how can you beat a candy that’s shaped like the fruit itself. I’m a sucker for that – it makes me feel like I’m healthy.

#4 – Raspberry from Sour Patch Kids (Original)

You gotta give it up for the OG’s. Without the red raspberry flavor in the original Sour Patch Kids, I probably wouldn’t even be making this list right now. It’s the one that started it all.

And that’s because it’s delicious and really set a high standard for all sour candies that followed it!

#3 – Pineapple from Sour Patch Kids Tropical

These are so amazing.

Buy From Amazon!

I love Sour Patch Kids Tropical more than most, I guess. Their flavors are all awesome, but no more so than the pineapple one.

Like white gummy bears? These are like those on steroids and covered in sugar. One of my favorites, no doubt.

#2 – Sour Apple from Sour Patch Kids Extreme

On the flip side, I didn’t love Sour Patch Extreme all that much. However, they had one standout flavor that blew me away – sour green apple.

Both tart and sour, it captured what every good green apple flavor should be – I’m looking at you Skittles!

Not the easiest pack to find anymore (as the other flavors weren’t that inspiring), but it’s worth finding for this flavor alone!

#1 – Blue Raspberry from Sour Patch Kids Berries

Sour Patch Kids Berries - Blue Raspberry Flavor

Buy From Amazon!

Talk about a cult following! Sour Patch Blue Raspberry are hard to find, but certainly worth tracking down. They have a sort of religious following.

It’s unclear (to me at least) if they are different than the blue flavor in Sour Patch Berries. Regardless, these are amazing and illict emotions that not many candies do. That is why they’re the BEST sour patch flavor.
