It’s no secret that candy manufacturers will go to great lengths to include bright colors, and cleverly animated designs to make packaging more enticing to consumers. However, in some cases, food packaging will contain designs that might be hard to spot at first glance.
You can imagine the overwhelming surprise, when Reddit user, Toms42, posted an image to the r/MildlyInteresting subreddit, that revealed a mind-blowing detail on the Sour Patch Kids packaging that many had never noticed before.
Apparently, the design, “of orange splotches” which runs along the edges of a Sour Patch Kids bag, is actually the outline of hundreds of Sour Patch Kids, yet the tiny design usually design is hardly ever noticed.
Reddit users exploded with astonishment, causing the post to climb the viral ranks. In just one day, the post hit 18,000 upvotes. Several users expressed utter confusion, while some struggled to cope with the reality of the situation.
For example, Sour Patch Kids happen to be user mistmurk’s favorite candy, but he’d never noticed the design on the packaging.
Whatever the case may be, that’s a pretty sweet discovery.
