I noticed when I tried this candy for the first time is that it is indeed sour but not cringe-inducing sour. Its just your traditional Skittle dusted with some kind of sour powder. If you bite right in and chew, its a subtle sour taste but you'd think you're just eating a regular Skittle. It comes assorted with the flavors: Grape, lime, lemon, orange, & strawberry.
I was curious to know just what natural ingredients it had since it boasts there's both natural and artificial flavors. They put apple juice in 'em. Citrus too. The package claims that its an excellent source of vitamin C although I doubt you'd really consider this a health food. Getting 45% of your daily value of vitamin C from candy has its drawbacks.. like rotten teeth! The packaging also boasts that its gluten-free and gelatin-free.
I doubt you can be considered a responsible parent to have your kids snack on this daily. Not only that but you'll just end up with hyperactive kids with a sugar rush.. Plus I wonder just how good for us all these weird named other ingredients are. Its that deceptive packaging that may confuse consumers!
When I was younger, I'd probably be addicted to this stuff but now that I'm older I tend to avoid things too sour or sweet. My tastes have evolved and I seem to prefer more filling, chewy candy like Twizzlers. Overall I'd say this is a nice candy to treat yourself to on occaision but it lacks that factor that would make you prefer it over something else. I can see me easily ignoring it on the shelf at a store and picking up something else.
