Sour Patch Kids Tropical [Review]

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 Kids Tropical

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.

Which new Sour Patch Tropical flavor is the best?

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

These are so amazing.

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.

Try them yourself and let me know what you think!

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!

    I had these they were good. The best ones were the white pineapple ones
    The next flavor mix coming soon in a few months is Tricksters. In this mix, the colors are the same as regular Sour Patch Kids but the flavors are swapped, for example an orange one might taste like a blue one

  • Wow! Thanks for the tip. Those sound like they could be pretty fun. Any idea on the exact release?

    They should be out around March-June 2017. I read online that they will be available in summer 2017 but they might be available earlier than that so we dont know yet…

    These will be available in snack size packs for Halloween 2017 too
