Sour Patch Kids Turns Up The Heat With New ‘Fire’ Flavor

Sour Patch Kids are bringing a fiery twist to a classic sour, then sweet favorite.

Junk food aficionado @candyhunting, debuted a picture of the new Fire Sour Patch Kids that’s yet to be released. According to the caption, they supposedly “taste like normal Sour Patch Kids, but then there’s a tiny kick of heat in the aftertaste.”

Now there’s different types of heat that can apply. Is it more of a cinnamon-like heat that’ll remind us of a Big Red gum? Or is it more like a hot chili heat, resembling a delicious Vero Mango lollipop? We won’t know for sure until we get a chance to try them ourselves.

There’s no official date of release that’s been set yet, but we’re hoping they come out soon so we can munch on them while we watch their much-anticipated Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade float this year.
