Sour Kids

by jerseygirl on October 13, 2008 · 33 comments

Look at the faces of these two kids. You probably think their mom just told them to clean their rooms. Or maybe it’s their reaction after the Phillies game last night. That is far from the truth. They are eating candy! Why the sour faces? Here is why ………………


This is the candy of their choice. This past weekend we drove to my in laws farm in Pennsylvania. Since it is over a four hour drive, I let the kiddos pick out some candy for the ride. How sour are they? I’ll put it this way. A lemon is sweet compared to these things but the kids love them.

I know this post really isn’t recipe related but candy is food, right? Okay, maybe not. Don’t worry, recipes will be coming your way this week.

I can’t handle the sour stuff, but when given a choice from the Halloween basket, that’s what the kids usually choose – even when there’s chocolate!

My kids love having these so they can make a show of the faces they make. How fun you snapped a pic! Great idea as they look adorable. How is your husband’s eye? I hope he is on the mend.

I’m familiar with Warheads…..my older boys (now grown) loved them. Can’t imagine why!!!!!

We used to have warhead battles. We used to do 3 or 4 and see how long you can hold it on your tongue before giving in. Yup, were weird 🙂

And hope those were the apple ones, those were awesome

Your kids are really adorable.
There is something about candy that makes you pucker up, that is just so appealing to kids.

Love those sour cutie pies of yours! I love thinking about popular kid candy during Halloween. I always want something that they will be excited to get and not just throw in their bags.
