Are you looking for the world’s most sour hard candy? Look no further! In this post we’ll talk about Toxic Waste, the only sour hard candy that’s so sour it comes in a barrel.
Is Toxic Waste the World’s Most Sour Hard Candy?
Many believe that Toxic Waste is in fact the world’s most sour candy. It has an outer layer of sour, followed by a middle layer of sweet, and then finally the super-sour core. Toxic Waste comes in a plastic yellow barrel in an assortment of 5 flavors including watermelon, black cherry, blue raspberry, lemon, and apple. Usually you get somewhere around 15 pieces of candy, but you can also buy it in bulk for much cheaper.
Still don’t believe that Toxic Waste is the world’s sourest candy? Watch this basement dweller ruin his day:
Obviously if you put 15 pieces of a really sour hard candy in your mouth at one time, you’re gonna have a bad time. However, if you eat one piece at a time any sour aficionado will tell you that it’s not so bad.
Where Can I Buy Toxic Waste?
You can buy Toxic Waste at a candy store near you, but Amazon has the best deals.
If you’re like me and don’t care about the packaging, you should buy the 2lb bag of Toxic Waste candy for only $14.95 (free shipping for Amazon Prime Members).
The same people also sell a 1lb bag but it’s $10.49 (still free shipping for Prime members) but why would anyone buy that when you can get another pound for just five bucks? It’s craziness.
If you do care about packaging (maybe it’s a gift?) you could buy the Toxic Waste 12 Pack case for $24.99 (free shipping for Amazon Prime Members) which is basically the display you’d see in any candy store.
Is Toxic Waste Candy Real Toxic Waste?
Of course not. If you eat too much of this hard candy, you might produce something that smells like toxic waste though!
What’s In Toxic Waste Hard Candy?
Toxic Waste contains the following ingredients:
- corn syrup
- citric acid
- malic acid
- artificial flavors
- artificial colors
The citric and malic acids are what make this the sourest hard candy in the world. The sugar is what makes the middle layer of the candy so sweet and the artificial colors make it look cool. Despite people telling you that it’s “none of your beeswax”, when you buy this candy some of the beeswax actually is yours!
Is Toxic Waste Healthy?
Toxic Waste is a candy, and like any candy it’s fine in normal amounts. Use common sense and you’ll be fine. Be sure to brush your teeth twice a day since this hard candy does have a lot of sugar, but don’t do it immediately after eating a piece since that can hurt your enamel. Instead drink a glass of water and then brush your teeth. Also watch out for the citric and malic acids. These acids can eat away the enamel on your teeth. I’m not a dentist, but your dentist is! Ask your dental professional their advice on this candy.
