ZotZ is a candy with a fizzy, sour center manufactured by G.B. Ambrosoli in Italy and distributed in the United States by Andre Prost, Inc. It is a hard candy that contains a sour powder comprising malic and tartaric acids mixed with sodium bicarbonate. When the powder dissolves, the acids dissolve in liquid (saliva or water) and react with the sodium bicarbonate to produce carbon dioxide bubbles and a fizzing sensation. Zotz has a mild sour flavor to it, owing to the acids involved in its ingredients. ZotZ flavors include apple, cherry, strawberry, watermelon, blue raspberry, grape, and orange. As of the year 2017 they are still currently in production and sold in stores.
