Sour Patch Chillerz
I didn’t really know what that meant. Maybe it’s like menthol or mint added to a sour candy?
When I got the sample back in May in my box of stuff from the All Candy Expo folks, I dutifully logged them in and took a photo of the package and then ignored them. But then I got a few comments from some readers about them ... so I was intrigued.
The front of the package of new Sour Patch Chillerz shows three smiling, waving & scarf-sporting, mitten-wearing Sour Patch Kids. Purple, Yellow & Red. On the back of the package is lists the flavors/colors ... and there’s some blue child, completely missing from the front. I guess he missed the photo shoot.
They come in four trademarked flavors:
I found them quite odd, but not bad really. My bag was pretty heavy on the grape but light on the berry punch, so it worked out pretty well. My favorite was the lemon, but that could have been that it was the most readily related to something I already found pleasant.
It’s a fun experiment and I can actually see myself craving these during a cold since they have some of the same elements and so much of the flavor doesn’t depend on the nose, instead it relies on the taste buds and textures.
Note: The package I reviewed was marked “sample - not for retail sale” so I cannot be certain that the package is exactly as sold at retail, though I’m pretty sure the product on the inside is.
