Jelly Belly Sours

Jelly Belly is always a popular choice for jelly beans. Over the years, its creative flavors excited candy fans. From the super fiery challenge to seasonal favorites, there is a Jelly Belly for every occasion.

The Jelly Belly Sours have five flavors in the mix. They are Sour Apple, Sour Cherry, Sour Grape, Sour Lemon and Sour Orange. These flavors are classics. Each flavor is not too sour but just enough pucker to satisfy.

Sour Punch

Like many people who grew up in the 90s, Sour Punch was the must have candy. Now at 30 years, that candy still delivers that big sour flavor.

From Sour Punch straws to the adorable Narwhal shape, each and every version offers a whole lot of punch.

While the brand has brought back some of its original packaging for the 30th anniversary, the newer Sour Punch Bites are quite tasty. Maybe it is the poppable size or ability to combine flavors, these smaller sized candies are quite tasty.


Candy fans know that Trolli is always weirdly awesome. Whether it is its Crawlers, unique shapes or classic shapes, those candies bring fun to the sour candy space.

If you are looking for a new twist in the sour candy space, the Trolli Crunchy Crawlers add a crunch to the gummy candy. Sometimes the dual candy texture makes a classic flavor new again.


While not the boldest sour flavor, SweeTARTS have that perfect balance of sweet and tart. From the classic round candies to the new Wonder Woman Golden Ropes, each and every bite satisfies. Maybe you can even have a flavor tasting of all the SweeTARTS offerings.

Probably the most extreme sour on the list is Warheads. While there is that touch of sweet, it is the bold sour that brings people back time and again.

In the Warheads line, there is a wide variety of options. From small candies to chewy cubes to even a spray, there is an option for every flavor craving.
