SOUR PATCH KIDS ICE CREAM
Today we look at a unique product but before we explore that we need to first look at what it is made out of. They are available in the UK and parts of Europe apparaently but I hadn’t heard of them until I came across this product in a US. Sour Patch Kids are a sweet that has a sour to sweet taste whilst having a soft, squidgy centre. They are owned by Maynards.
In 2018, it was announced in the US that Walmart was going to be the home of Sour Patch Kids Ice Cream. The desert is a lemon sorbet mixed with vanilla ice cream It also has a redberry swirl throughout the frozen delicacy with chunks of the blue Sour Patch kids.
The Ice Cream is $3.48 to purchase and by the looks of itm is still available in stores. There is a lot of mixed reviews online about this product some people really like the taste and the experience of having sweets as a novelty ice cream. Some even reccomended adding it to coke to make a float. Others however had nothing but negative things to say about the ice cream – some found it too sweet and didnt like the addition of the actual candy as it became flavourless against the strength of the ice cream.
