Everybody knows Warheads, the extremely sour hard candy, that literally burns tongues.

Ingredients(warning, it contains an acid that has a pH of 2.2):

  • Corn Syrup
  • Sugar
  • Microencapsulated Malic Acid
  • Citric Acid
  • Gum Acacia
  • Soybean Oil (Processing Aid)
  • Ascorbic Acid
  • Artificial Flavors
  • Carnuaba Wax
  • Corn Starch

The sour affect only lasts for about 5 to 10 seconds before dissipating into a sweet flavor.

But, are they really as sour as everybody thinks they are? Let’s see.
