Candy A to Z: Toxic Waste

May 16, 2018

You've got to respect the bravado of a candy company that publicizes how unpleasant their product is to eat. It just doesn't make sense. And yet, the marketing department of Candy Dynamics, manufacturer of Toxic Waste Hazardously Sour Candy, has been using this strategy for well over a decade. Surprisingly, they've been able to tap into a curious and twisted portion of the candy lover's psyche and have developed a whole line of hazardously sour products that they're practically daring you to eat!

Even the Sour Patch Kids shudder when Toxic Waste is mentioned, so prepare for a one-of-a-kind experience. And if you or your kids are brave enough to try Toxic Waste, you'll want to have a camera ready. The reactions will be priceless!

Here's how some All City Candy customers reacted when they took the Toxic Waste challenge...

Jimmy Sweet Tooth says: I love food challenges. If you dare me to eat something sour, or spicy, or just plain weird, I'll probably do it. Toxic Waste definitely did not disappoint. Not only was it the sourest candy I've ever eaten, but after the initial coating melted away, it became a really tasty, fruity hard candy. I think some pieces got sour again in the middle, but not all of them. Maybe the "sour" was just playing tricks with my brain! Toxic Waste is so fun, because you don't just get the really unique flavor, you also get to enjoy watching your friends' reactions. Highly recommended!
