Jolly Rancher Sours

Jolly Rancher Sours
Every once in a while I'll blog about some food I purchased. These Jolly Rancher Sours are something I have to tell you about because they are so, so good. I love most things with Jolly Rancher flavors. There's just something unique about those flavors that take me back to my childhood, eating Apple Stix, Cherry Stix, Watermelon Stix, and Fire Stix at my brother's baseball games. The flavors haven't changed, but the forms they come in have. The most recent incarnation of Jolly Rancher flavors is in the form of heart-shaped sour sugar coated gum drops. There are only four flavors in the bag: orange, watermelon, cherry, and apple. All of them delicious and sour. My mouth is watering just talking about it. I really purchased the first bag for my husband, but I think I ate most of that first bag all by myself. In two days. I'm on the second bag now, and I had to stop myself at six hearts after dinner tonight. They'll still be here tomorrow, but I'm a little concerned these are only a Valentine's thing. Wait, it's probably better that way.
So, if you too are a fan of Jolly Ranchers, even if you don't normall eat sour things, give these a try. I'm warning you, though, you just might get hooked.


  1. Do you know where to get them off-season? I Just finished the last bag from valentines and I'm desperate.

    1. I have seen bags of Jolly Rancher sours (in off-season fruit shapes) at Super Target. They are near the gummy bears and such things. I don't know if all Target stores carry them, but I bet you could ask your local Target manager to try to get them in if they don't already carry them. I mean, those Target employees are constantly asking me, "Are you finding everything you need?" They seem like they want to be helpful (although sometimes I think I know the store better than they do).
      Let me know what you find, and I'll keep my eye out at other stores as well. Hopefully the fact that they make non-season version will at least encourage you to keep searching. Good luck!
