Some people might still be scarred from those kid Valentine’s Day parties where no one put a card in the bag. Or, maybe it was the anticipation for the romantic dinner that turned into a table flipping nightmare. Whether people call Valentine’s Day a Hallmark holiday or still long to believe in the possibility of happily ever after, a candy that hits the sweet and sour note might capture the notion that life is about appreciating the dichotomy. Ready to open a box of Black Raspberry Sour Patch Kids Sour Hearts?

For many people, Sour Patch Kids candy is always a favorite. While people might prefer red over blue, the mischievous little characters add that extra layer of flavorful fun. Embracing the fun in food can make any occasion more memorable.

Around Valentine’s Day, the heart-shaped candy boxes start to fill the shelves. Although the romantic movies might have prince charming on bended knee, that scene is fiction for some. Even though bitter might not be a good luck, a little sour can make the sweet taste even better.

According to Lauryn McDonough, Senior Marketing Director, Candy, Seasonals, and Chocolate at Mondelēz International. “Valentine’s Day can be a sour subject for some, which is why we wanted to offer a Sour Patch Kids treat for all our fans to enjoy. Sout Patch Kids Sour Hearts candy plays on the mischievous side of Valentines, while still delivering the sour-then-sweet treat Sour Patch Kids fans have come to know and love, regardless of relationship status.”

The Black Raspberry Sour Patch Kids Sour Hearts are back in stores for a limited time. In a special black heart shape, the idea is to celebrate the flavor that people love, with or without the romantic pretense. If streaming all those Wednesday episodes taught people anything, it is ok to walk your own path.

In addition, Sour Patch Kids wants to celebrate people who are skipping the romantic tropes this Valentine’s Day. With the creation of Sour Hearts Social Club, guests can enjoy an anti-Valentine’s Day celebration on February 13.

Held at the Allis at Soho House in Chicago, the event will feature food, mocktails, and more. Unlike other events around the same time, this event skips the hearts, pinks, and other traditional romantic décor. Reservations for the special event can be made on OpenTable.

As the countdown to February 14 begins, do not let the hype become overwhelming. Life is about the sweet and sour. Open a package of Black Raspberry Sour Patch Kids Sour Hearts and just enjoy the moment.
