Lemonheads are a perennial favorite and are one of the tartest candies that we offer and have been since they first appeared at candy counters in 1962.
According to Ferrara Pan, they make 4,800 of the bulk Lemonheads per minute and produce approximately 240,000 Lemonheads per hour, which makes for 1,920,000 bulk Lemonheads per day and quite a few puckered faces amongst the candy's legion of fans!
There are approximately 30 Lemonheads per pounds and, according to our calculations , you would need 12,8000 5 lb. bags to equal a day's production!

- Leonheads played a huge role in my relationship with my husband!
- Review by DMundy , 4/22/13
I just wanted to let you know first and foremost how much Lemon Drops and Lemon Heads have played a part in my life over the past 4 years. I met my husband online, and when I sent him the first picture, he proceeded to his foot in his mouth and madea comment on the kiss I blew him by saying, "You look like you're kissing a lemon." Before I could get a word out , he recovered quickly saying, "but, I like a Lemon." Two days later I received 2 white and lavender roses, with boxes and bags of lemon heads and lemon drops. So, 2 years after that, I moved from NY to KS to be with him and last year on April 29th, 2012 we were married which adds a "sweet" ending to the story!

There is nothing like the intense sour and awesome sweetness of a lemonhead. When I am working, these lemony sweets make my day go by. If you never had them, you have to try them. I promise you will become a huge fan just like me.
