    they really aren't as sour as they used to be tbh.

  • Austin The Accused

    There used to be a sort of chewy center back in the day but now it’s just solid. I guess they done away with it because it didn’t make a difference with how little the core was.

    5:07 its cause shes chewing it..if you dont suck on it and chew it instead then it isnt very sour at all as the outer layer is where the sour coating is so if you chew it up and get to the sweet inside you dont taste much of the sourness/ he gets overpowered by the sweet

    They for sure have a center. Only the center isnt like that. It's a tiny tiny tiny hole filled with like powdered citric acid. I was never sure that it really truly was meant to have that or if I was imagining it and it was just really broken candy when I bit it. It's nice to feel validated lol.

    Today warheads, or yester year war heads? LIke, they used to be a lot more intense. Today warheads lost a lot of sourness dues to legal issues.
