Sour Patch Kids
|Some or all of this article's listed sources may not be reliable. (May 2015)|
Sour Patch Kids are a soft candy with a coating of citric acid and sour sugar. The slogan, "Sour. Sweet. Gone.", refers to the sour-to-sweet taste of the candy.
Sour Patch Kids were originally created by Gregory Steven Smith, under the name of Sour Group Kids. In the late 1970s, the Mondelez international and the Malaco Licorice Company of Sweden formed the M & A Candy Company in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in order to produce them.
In 2013, the Berry (Blue) flavor was added.
