While the iconic Sour Patch Kids candy has always delivered that sweet and tart combination, flavor innovation can keep the food interesting. With the new Sour Patch Kids Lemonade Fest, the favorite summer beverage is transformed into a fun, refreshing candy.

Over the years, sour candy has seen a rise in popularity. As the candy transforms in flavor, the eating enjoyment intensifies. While people can debate the favorite classic flavor or prefer to choose based on color, the reality is that those mischievous little kids always bring a little food fun to the conversation.

To kick off summer, a special set of pucker-forward flavors are coming to the shelf. The Sour Patch Kids Lemonade Fest comes in four flavors, Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade, Blue Raspberry Lemonade and Cherry Lime Lemonade. While many people might pour one of these flavors into the glass, now they can enjoy an extra burst of sweet tartness any time and any where they please.

Speaking to the new candy flavors, Grace Howard, Brand Manager, Innovation, Mondelēz International, said, “With Lemonade Fest, we’ve created a fun and refreshing candy that perfectly captures the ultimate essence of sour-then-sweet, in a way that only SOUR PATCH KIDS can. We know our Gen Z fans will love the bright, lemonade-inspired flavors. Whether you’re lounging by the pool, trick-or-treating, looking for a cool stocking stuffer, or puckering up for Valentine’s Day, SOUR PATCH KIDS Lemonade Fest delivers a tangy tingle that will keep the summer vibe alive all year long.”

In some ways, this new candy flavor is a touch nostalgic, yet it still feels fresh. Even though it might not necessarily be sitting on the back porch with a glass in hand, there is a carefree feeling in every bite. Whether eaten one at a time or by the handful, the flavors stand on their own and can easily be combined together.

If someone had to pick a favorite, the Blue Raspberry Lemonade would be the top choice, especially for fans of blue Sour Patch Kids. Even though there is no blue raspberry in the produce section, it is an enjoyable combination.

For an option that brings more creativity beyond just the eating enjoyment, the Cherry Lime Lemonade has that versatility. Whether topping a classic cupcake or mixed into a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it is a taste of summer.

The Sour Patch Kids Lemonade Fest is available at retailers nationwide. Check with stores for pricing and availability.
