- This article describes the candy. For the band, see The Lemonheads.
Lemonhead is a brand of candy, first introduced in 1962, produced by the Ferrara Candy Company. Lemonheads are a round, lemon-flavored candy consisting of a sweet coating, soft sour shell, and a hard candy core.
The candy was born out of the same cold panned process as the company's Red Hots in 1962. They are most commonly sold in their standard 1 centimeter size, but are also produced in a single-sale 3 cm version.
Recently,[when?] Ferrara Pan brought all of their fruit-flavored candies under a consistent naming convention: Lemonheads, Grapeheads (formerly Alexander the Grape), Cherryheads (formerly Cherry Chan/Cherry Clan), Melonheads (formerly Mr. Melon), Appleheads (formerly Johnny Apple Treats), and Orangeheads.
