A new classic, even if a little overrated…
One of my favorite small doses candy. Don’t get me wrong, it’s amazing, but the fact that there are no other flavors than watermelon can make finishing a bag pretty difficult. Okay, so it’s actually still easy to finish a bag of Sour Patch Watermelon, but you know what I mean.
I remember for a while, they had a bag that had all the other Sour Patch fruit and was easy to see watermelon was the standout. It’s definitely the best watermelon flavored candy out there, and many would argue that’s in contention for best sour candy. In fact, it’s probably the highlight of the Sour Patch franchise now.
Just as with Sour Patch Kids, it’s properly sized, and the big bag is the ultimate movie snack. Even better, the sugar flakes off and collects at the bottom of the page. I know it sounds gross, but every sugar fiend knows that you can cap off each bag with some extra sugar if you’re in the mood. Of course, the candies are shaped and colored to look like watermelon slices, which adds yet another fun layer to an already great candy.
The only complaint I have is, as previously stated, that there’s no variety. Watermelon is great and all, but would it kill Sour Patch to accompany it with some other flavors? I suppose the marketing for Sour Patch Watermelon and Cherries isn’t as easy (or effective), but I’d like to see them branch out and get some crazier fruits involved.
That being said, for the time being, Sour Patch Watermelon is a new classic for any candy lover. It’s not as sour as your average Sour Patch candy (in my opinion), and instead a lot sweeter. Overall, it great to share, as almost everyone loves a watermelon slice or two. It’s when you have the whole bag to yourself that things can get a little difficult.
I guess in that regard it’s kind of like the watermelon fruit itself. Too big for one person, but the perfect summer treat for everyone. An OMG.
Never had these before? Are you crazy?!
