Brain Blasterz – Wimps Need Not Apply

How sour is "too sour"? And damn it, when are the wimps gonna have a candy of their own?

I like this funky immature  packaging:


The first thing you need to be aware of here is exactly who’s invited to the party:


Unfortunately, in addition to babies and adults, wimps can’t eat these.  So…reading between the lines, these are intended for extremely aggressive 5-17 year olds.

These are almost identical to Warheads, the candy I always refer to as “too sour”.  Yes, these are too sour.
How sour?

Let me put it this way: you eat one, and the rook of your mouth will be chaffed for the rest of the day.

Having said that, I actually like these things for some reason.  The flavors are what you’d expect, but for some reason i really enjoyed the watermelon.  That doesn’t change the fact that they regularly damaged the roof of my mouth, but still…I endured.


The initial experience is ultra sour, as discussed.  Like Warheads though, pretty quickly that first wave mellows out.  However, these also have sour powder inside them, which is actually really nice and not nearly as sour as the coating.
Bottom line though?  Apparently I’m a wimp.  AND AN ADULT!  So these aren’t for me.  But for a rowdy group of 7 year  olds?


Game on. If, of course, you live in the UK or don’t mind spending junior’s college fund on shipping from the link below.

    I tried both these and Warheads (and Toxic Waste, which are kinda similar). They’re all pretty much the same, so if you live in the US, probably don’t spend any money importing these and get some Warheads instead.

    If you want to step it up even more, try to get some UK Mega Sour Balls. They’re similar (first sour, then regular boiled candy), but the sour step lasts a bit longer.
