We may be sour, but we know our sweets.

Super Cola

We reviewed “Super Lemon” a few years back, and until a few weeks ago, I thought that was that.  Turns out, there’s a new Super in the family.

I paid WAY too much for these at a local Ranch 99 – an indoor mall of Asian stores and restaurants.  Fun place, but  the candy store there aint cheap.

….Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I forgot to photograph the candy itself.  Thankfully, that’s not a huge deal: they’re round, slightly dusted hard candies.

What IS a big deal is that these blew me away.  I’ve had lots of cola candy in my day, but not a ton of sour cola candy.  Or rather, super sour candy.  These are intense.  You start out with Warheads-level sour on the outside of the candy, which gently gives way to the intense classic Asian cola flavor-one of my favorites.  The sour lingers all the way through, although it wears down in a consistent way, till al you’re left with is a delicious slightly tart cola hard candy.

I adore these.  And now I know why I paid so much- they’re really not available here in the US.  However, you can certainly find them on Ebay (link below), which I recommend doing. In fact, I think I’m doing it too.  Right.  Now.

UPDATE: here they are:

  1. Eaten. Likened. Boughting. Eaten more.

  2. Available at World Market. Right now. For maximum face-shoving ability.

  3. Bought from World Market. First taste is sour to the extreme of sour, but I will buy again.

    My eating experience can be best summarized as “ouch ouch ouch nom nom nom ouch nom nom nom….want another”

  4. I’m posting this on 8/28/17, so I don’t know if this is a new thing or not, but, there’s definitely some kind of sour fizzy powder *inside* the cola hard candy, in addition to that incredibly sour dusting on the outside.

    The interior fizz kicks in a few seconds after you’ve sucked the sour off of the candy, and you’re mostly tasting that (great!) cola flavor. It feels like it’s fizzing out of a tiny hole in the candy itself.

    I love these things. SO sour, SO yummy, SO addictive!
