People think vegans just eat leaves. I eat lots of candy. One of my current faves is the limited Easter edition Sour Patch Kids Bunnies.
I love how they are sour, then sweet. I love the chewiness. I love the citrus flavors – lemon, lime, orange – although I’m not too wild about the blue ones.
Every holiday Sour Patch Kids comes out with a holiday themed gummy. Easter is no different. Here’s what you need to know.
- The Easter Sour Patch Kids are in the shape of bunnies. Or so they say. You’ll have to take their word for it.
- The bunnies are in pretty, pastel, springtime colors – light orange, daffodil yellow, grass green, soft azalea pink.
- There are no weird blue gummies. Repeat – NO WEIRD BLUE GUMMIES! (God does sometimes answer prayers.)
- The Sour Patch bunnies are ever so slightly sweeter than the Sour Patch Kids. Perhaps to make the sour citrus flavors a little more palatable to small children?
Needless to say, these are my favorite Sour Patch Kids yet.
One fat-free serving (about 12 pieces) is 110 calories. But unless you have far more self restraint than I, you will likely eat the whole box – 320 calories.
A “movie theater box” retails for about $1.25 – $1.50. Expect markdowns after Easter.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Sour Patch Kids are vegan and PETA-approved in the US. In the UK they may still contain gelatin. Vegans who are militant about sourcing their sugar may also want to pass, as the manufacturer utilizes different suppliers.
