Sour Patch Kids were launched in the UK last year there, with at least one new variant; the Soda Popz (review HERE), being released this year already. Now there is also a rather macabre Halloween Limited Edition in the form of these gruesome Sour Patch Kids Heads & Bodies.
Despite the fact that the sweets consist of severed heads and headless bodies, they still manage to look quite fun. There are only two flavours of sweets in the pack; blackcurrant and orange, but this simply ensures the perfect colour mix for Halloween. The flavours are very good too, a satisfyingly fruity combination of the zesty orange and sweeter blackcurrant. They both feature a mildly sour coating that soon gives way to a more sugary finish.
I was really impressed by these Limited Edition Heads & Bodies, they're just on the right side of gory for kids to enjoy at Halloween!
