Stretchy, Sticky, Sugary Sweet Sour Punch StrawsThursday, August 12th, 2010 by Becca Droz
Denture Danger: 7
Sour Punch Straws have always caught my eye as a candy that I look forward to eating, but the actual act of eating the sour straws is never quite what my mind worked it up to be.
When I bite into the jelly straws covered in sour sugar I feel it in my teeth. I don’t know if it is the abundance of sugar or the texture or what, but biting into the sour straws hurts my teeth. When a candy is painful to eat, it is hard to enjoy it, whether or not it tastes good.
I’d say that this is definitely a recommendable candy so long as it doesn’t cause you discomfort to eat. The sourness produced by a taste of this candy is approved by my standards and I am usually unimpressed with the degree of sour in most candies that are marketed as “sour.”
Since so many straws come in each package, this candy is quite sharable, and if you don’t want to give someone a full straw, they would be ungrateful to be disappointed with a half straw. Share the Sour Punch Straws amongst your own taste buds and your friends’ taste buds and thank the American Licorice Company for making the experience possible.
