To celebrate the release, Skittles asked football player Marshawn Lynch to spread the news, and he went somewhere honest opinions are plentiful - a senior living community.

"You're a Sour Patch Kid !" she shrieked. "You owe me, so you have to go by that name ! Then we can discuss your strategies on the way home! And even Lord Tubbington can help once he gets his fire extinguisher medicine!"

Yes we have another Sour Patch Kids candy to try! Well that certainly is different ! They’re online at Walmart and in what seems like random stores around the US. If you can find them, please try them and let me know!

Long before the Sour Patch Kids had Extreme, Freeze, and Xploderz counterparts, let alone an ice cream to its name, they were just some funny-shaped creatures capitalizing on the UFO-craze of the time. While it's hard to think the 'Sour, Sweet, Gone' candy ever went by something other than Sour Patch Kids, the current name was actually adopted in the 1980s.

Before they were Sour, these guys were sold as Mars Men. This was in the 1970s, when UFO sightings were common and space travel to Mars was in full swing. Mondelēz had yet to buy the candy company (it's now in the same family as Oreo and Chips Ahoy), but a company spokesperson said of the old name, "we believe it was because they looked similar to alien creatures from Mars."

It’s Official: Pediatric Dentists Prefer Ice Cream to Candy

  It’s Official: Pediatric Dentists Prefer Ice Cream to Candy <p>We have hit upon a sweets loophole approved by most pediatric dentists: Chocolate, cookies and ice cream are kind of OK.&nbsp;</p>Anyone who’s ever tried, failed and given up on brushing a small child’s teeth once or twice (um, a week?), or bribed them with candy to do…well…everything has reason to fear the dentist, right? Surely we’ll have to pay the piper in cavities for failing to pull off a sneak attack brush sesh, even while they were mesmerized by Tayo The Little Bus? But no!

Ever wonder why Sour Patch Kids don't look anything like kids ? It's because they were actually first designed and marketed to be aliens. All through the 70's they were sold under the name Mars Men. Who else loves these sweet and mouth-puckering gummy aliens?

Fast forward a decade and a different kind of cultural phenomenon had taken hold, leading to a name change for the Mars Men. In the 80s, Cabbage Patch Kids - those round-headed dolls you may have had growing up - became wildly popular, so the candy's moniker changed to Sour Patch Kids. Over in France, the candies have a very literal translation of "Very Bad Kids." Considering how much of the brand's identity is built around the sour-then-sweet characters, it's safe to say the name change paid off.

E-Cigarette Liquid Packaged Like Candy Leads to U.S. Warnings

  E-Cigarette Liquid Packaged Like Candy Leads to U.S. Warnings U.S. officials are intensifying their crackdown on e-cigarette products that they say are geared to entice children. The Food and Drug Administration and Federal Trade Commission sent 13 letters Tuesday to companies that make and sell the liquids used in e-cigarettes, warning them for using false and misleading labeling and advertising. The nicotine products resemble juice boxes, whip-cream canisters and well-known candy and cookie packages like Sour Patch Kids and Nilla Wafers.

I successfully cooked some up while multi-tasking (not my strong point) and it totally took me back. I had a minor freak-out when I realized there was a recipe for homemade Sour Patch Kids in the book.
