Tiny, crunchy and sour, Nerds are have been a staple of childhood since Wonka introduced them in the 1980s. Nerds are what's called panned candy, made by taking little crystals of sugar and then tumbling them with successive layers of sour and sweet flavored coatings, finished off with a coat of color. Unlike most panned candy, Nerds are not panned until they're a uniform size and shape: Nerds vary in size (from sesame seed to pea) and retain a rough, irregular shape, thickly glazed to create a unique crunchiness.
Rainbow Nerds is an assortment of fruity flavors which blend together nicely when eaten by the handful.
Brightly colored Nerds make great toppings for ice cream, cupcakes, sugar cookies and gingerbread houses. We've heard tales of adults fighting over the Nerds in their kids' Halloween baskets, but maybe that's just one of those scary urban legends.

Your Nerds are great. I am addicted. One request, can you get rid of the green apple flavor? It's hideous! Why not do LIME!!!
...the green Nerds are actually watermelon-flavored, not sour apple. In fact, Nerds already makes a green watermelon candy. And if you eat the Rainbow selections by themselves, it seems pretty apparent the purple is indeed grape, the pink is strawberry, the yellow is lemonade, the orange is orange, and the green is watermelon.
It only makes sense as Nerds sells the purple and pink separately as grape and strawberry respectively. Orange was just released as a Halloween box. And there exists a green Nerd that is watermelon, NOT sour apple.
