Candy corn is easily one of the most divisive of all candies. People either hate it adamantly or wait all year for its seasonal return to store shelves. Now, a new rendition on this old classic is getting ready to stir the pot, because Sour Patch candy corn is apparently now a thing.

Just in time for the Halloween season, Frankford Candies has introduced Sour Patch Kids Candy Corn. These unique treats retain the classic candy corn triangular shape and signature stripes. Only the stripes now come in both orange and a grape-flavored purple. They’re also coated with a sour dusting.

JunkFoodMom shared her Dollar General find on Instagram and described them as tasting “like a gummie but have that crumbly candy corn texture. I think these are more on the sweet side than sour.”

It seems Sour Patch Kids isn’t the only unique twist on this ages-old confection. JunkFoodMom also shared a new post with Brach’s new take on candy corn with fruit-flavored Uni-Corns and strawberry-flavored Dragon’s Teeth Candy Corn.

Ok ok this just went to my number one I gotta find slot. Brach’s Uni-corns candy corn in 5 fruity flavors and Dragons Teeth candy corn in strawberry and original flavors. 🐉🦄🐉🦄 I’m well aware it just candy with a unicorn and a dragon on the package but 🤷🏼‍♀️ I need them. 🤣 So awesome they came up with dragons as well- both boys and girls can like unicorns and or dragons but it’s cool there’s another mythical creature to choose from. ( or maybe they aren’t mythical? 🤔 ) I discovered these on Amazon for an outrageous amount of money.. if anyone finds them in the wild please let us know. Unicorns and dragons oh my. #brachs #brachscandycorn #ferraracandycompany #brachsunicorn #brachsdragonteeth #unicorncandycorn #dragonsteethcandycorn #amazon #ineedthese #onthehunt #thehuntison #itsacandycornyear #junkfood #unicorns #dragons

Regardless of where you stand on the great candy corn debate, it seems like the candy is here to stay and is taking on many new forms.
