If there was one thing that I had to pinpoint as being my Achilles heel it would have to be my sweet tooth. I know that nutrition for guys is the one thing that accounts for most of your overall fitness goals. You can have the best workout and exercise plan in the world, but if your diet is FUBAR then you’re not getting anywhere. Sometimes that’s where I feel I am sometimes. Almost on a hamster wheel struggling to stay where I’m at instead of bursting my pants up another belt notch. I know that the struggle lies with my diet, and specifically with my sweet tooth. I think that second to quitting smoking for guys is the diet when it comes to the thing that they could fix to increase their level of health and fitness. But I don’t know if that’s ever going to change for me. I have a serious problem with candy. And specifically my affinity for sour candies. There is nothing else that gives me the most trouble when it comes to my nutrition. I am a big fan.
In fact, you might say I’m a bit of a connoisseur of sour candy! There are not many that I haven’t tried. I’m actually ashamed to admit that I used to have a subscription that delivered five different sour candies to my house every month. That might be going a little overboard for most, but it was right up my alley. I would sit and wait for the mailman when my delivery was scheduled to come to the house like it was Christmas day! So needless to say, I’m a little bit of an expert when it comes to sour candy.
So if I had to pick my favorite sour candies of all time, here are my top 3:
- Coming in at number 3 would have to be Trolli sour gummi worms. This was a close race between Sour Patch Kids and the gummi worms, but after watching a recent episode of Unwrapped 2.0 that featured Trolli gummi worms, I decided to make them my number 3 sour candy.
- Coming in at number 2 is my old favorite…Sour Skittles. These are outstanding. Skittles were always my favorite candy growing up. When they added the sour option back in 2000, it was one of the greatest things to happen in the food industry since they decided to slice the bread. Just when you think they couldn’t make something so great any better, they went ahead and did it! And knocked it out of the park! This was definitely number one on the list until it was overtaken recently with…
- Chewy Sour Sweet Tarts. I was introduced to these guys a few years ago when they were known as Shockers. I was really pissed when I thought they went away. They actually are sour. Now as you know, a lot of sour candies claim to be sour but are barely even tart! I like to have that pucker in my sour candy before it turns sweet. These Sweet Tarts do the trick for sure. They can definitely make you pucker up, but it doesn’t last long. Then it turns to a sweet chewy goodness that leaves you wanting more every time. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
So there you have it. My top 3 sour candies of all time! What do you guys think? Comment below and let me know any I may have overlooked.
