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:
