Sometimes you just know when something is going to be good. That’s certainly the case with Sour Patch Kids Tropical. However, what I didn’t realize is just how awesome they would be. Seriously, this is one of the best candies I have ever had.
Sour Patch hasn’t exactly innovated recently. They’ve introduced new flavors but nothing that has caught the attention of the masses quite like Sour Patch Kids original. They have tried Extreme, they have tried Exploderz, but nothing seems to stick.
With Sour Patch Kids Tropical they have certainly found something that will be a hit. Right now, it’s only available in Target and 7-Elevens, but that should soon change.
What makes these Kids so great is obviously the innovation. Sour Patch Kids Tropical flavors are as follows:
- White – Pineapple
- Purple – Passion Fruit
- Pink – Paradise Punch
- Orange – Tropical Twist
Which new Sour Patch Tropical flavor is the best?
Each one is special, unique, and really delicious. The two fruit-flavors are self-explanatory. Pineapple is quite honestly the best of the bunch, but probably the obvious choice of the whole pack. Passion Fruit certainly is a unique choice that pans out too. For a “purple” colored candy it doesn’t leave that syrupy residue that you get with grape or something like that.
The red flavor for the Tropical bag is ‘Paradise Punch’ which is a sour take on fruit punch. I’m not usually a big fruit punch fan but even this one is above average.
The mystery comes with the orange flavor. It’s called Tropical Twist, but I can’t seem to pinpoint exactly what it is. It’s very tart and sour, so I want to say it’s kumquat. If you have any ideas, be sure to leave them in the comments.
All in all, these are too good not to be a huge hit. Go give them a try – Sour Patch is at the top of their game with the Tropical flavors!
