I've seen those every time I wander down the candy isle at walgreens but have never tried them.

Reeses by far.

No contest.

Though the sour straws are good, and so are swedish fish (though not quite as good).

IMO, of course.

As long as they're reasonably fresh, sour straws are awesome (actually I'm just very partial to sour gummy candy in general -- especially sour gummy worms). Stale sour straws, however, are among the worst candies in the world.

... I disagree. Of course, I also on occasion buy a package of them, tear open a corner so they can breath, then put them on a shelf or something for a week. So's they get stale.

While Swedish Fish and Reese's Pieces are amazing, for me it's tie between Sour Patch Kids and Reese's Cups.

Honorable mentions go to Whatchamacallits, Starburst, and Twix.

It's because they aren't made with gelatin, they are as candy should be, almost completely sugar.

Agreed, otherwise this would be my number one.

I love Reese's and Swedish Fish, but I gotta say that Smarties are my absolute favorites. Absolutely no nutritional value at all.

I love those.
Unfortunately, I get a very upset stomach whenever I eat anything containing beeswax. So, almost all gummy candies are off-limits. :( I've developed a taste aversion to them anyway.

Lindt truffle balls.

The red ones.

I gained 7 pounds during a two week trip to Switzerland because of them, and had to force myself to stop eating them when I got back to the US. I am still tempted when I see them in shops, though.

I've never really liked sour candies. Perhaps some people actually like sour flavor but the only good thing I can see in sour candies is that they make you taste something bad so something that tastes decent becomes relatively amazing...and that's just a cheap way to make something tasty.

Never had these but I bet they are DELICIOUS

Gummies aren't sour. There are specific sour gummies, but regular gummies are better.

Oh, and I just remembered a gummy meal. What are they called? Dirt cups? A Cup of Dirt? Something like that. Where there's chocolate ice cream, oreo bits, and fudge and stuff, but there are gummy worms in it to. That reminds me of another thing! Any sort of gummy with chocolate on it is more tasty than its original form. It's SCIENCE!

Tiny gummy bears on good ice cream is just freakin' wonderful! They get all hard and... well, I guess that's about it. Huzzah!

I also love real licorice, but I've not heard of the salty variety. I shall keep an eye out.

When I was wee and in afterschool, we'd occasionally get a special treat that I believe was called dirt pudding. It was basically what you described, only with chocolate pudding instead of ice cream. And no fudge. Despite the lack of fudge, it was amazingly good.

I have a predilection for just about every candy that comes in a sour apple flavor.
