It’s been ages since I’ve had any sort of Warheads candy. Now, I realize that I’m not a big fan of sour stuff now, but back in middle school I was crazy for the sour Warheads that you could give for a few cents at a candy store. I never got the really sour, sour stuff, but flavors like the Watermelon, Blue Raspberry I could handle and enjoy. I saw this box of Warheads Sour Chewy Cubes and wanted to give them a try, for old times sake. I didn’t expect them to be very sour, so I figured it’d be something I’d still enjoy.
I love the packaging on this, with the puckering dude on the front with the great rainbow color scheme. It really caught my eye on the shelf, which makes it very successful in terms of sales and design. It just reeks “fun” and I bet kids have a hard time resisting this one.
The sour cubes are about the size of dice. They’ve soft and squishy, and are very colorful with a granulated sugar coating on them.
Green Apple: Immediately tart, floral and fruity. It comes across as a more sweet version of the apple Jolly Rancher.
Blue Raspberry: Extremely berry like with a twinge of bubblegum and cotton candy. The sourness adds a touch of tart, but doesn’t dominate the flavor.
Strawberry: Sour at first, then turns jammy with rich, deep sweet strawberry flavors. It’s odd in combination with the sweet strawberry taste.
Watermelon: Immediately tart and extremely fake tasting with horrid perfumey flavor to it. Your standard fake watermelon.
Black Cherry (purple): This one tastes like bubblegum at first, them turns into Dr Pepper. It has strong floral and cherry notes, and the sour makes it seem fizzy.
Orange: Has a very sweet orangey flavor. the sourness is mild, and comes across as a sour zest. it’s quite nice.
I was surprised by how much I liked these. I even offered them to my boyfriend, who first refused and then after my encouragement tried them to find he really liked them as well. They’re milder than the sour balls they make as I anticipated. The gummi cubed form is really fun and playful, and it really brings me back when I eat them. Such fun!
