National Sour Candy Day

National Sour Candy Day

There are many delicious types of candy all over the globe, but this day is dedicated to one kind of sweet treat: sour candy.

National Sour Candy Day is an opportunity for all sour candy lovers to enjoy, celebrate and appreciate this delicious treat.

The origins of super sour candy candies can be traced back as far as the 1960s and 1950s. Lemonheads: These sweet little lemon-flavored candies were made with real lemon juice. This makes sense, as citric acid can make your mouth pucker.

The 1970s and 1980s were crucial years for the growth and promotion of sour candy. Sour Patch Kids first appeared in Canada in the late 1970s. They were then introduced to America in the mid-1980s.

Trolli brand sour-gummy worms were first invented in Germany in 1980. In the 1970s, warheads were invented in Taiwan. They were brought to America in 1993.

National Sour Candy Day was established by the American Licorice Company in 2015. It is a celebration of mouth-watering fruit flavors that can make you water. American Licorice Company makes sour candy like Sour Punch, Sour Straws, and many more.
