Our Melster Circus Peanuts, seasonal Chocolatey Covered Marshmallow candies, Taffy, and Old Fashioned Creme Drops can be found at Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Family Dollar, and Walmart.
Not all stores carry all products.
We only have the amazing gum-filled Sour Lollipops available seasonally in our mixed bags. So be sure to stock up at Halloween. Buy ‘em up and guard your stash!
Sometimes an empty wrapper or two gets into a bag of Extreme Sour Candy as it is being filled. Our bags are filled by weight, not by the number of candies. It would take almost 50 empty wrappers to equal the weight of one hard candy, so you should still have the correct amount of candy in your bag. Sometimes we make crafts out of the empty wrappers, but we recognize that not everyone wants an Extreme Sour Candy wrapper necklace.
Currently, our WARHEADS Worms, Extreme Heat Worms, and Scorching Heat Twists are made with gelatin derived from beef. Our Melster products — Circus Peanuts, Chocolatey Covered Marshmallow Products, Taffy products — also contain this gelatin.
Our products are not Kosher, vegetarian, or vegan certified.
Some candy is only for ages 4 and up due to choking hazards. As far as whether or not your taste buds can handle sour candy, that depends on the individual person. Some people’s mouths are more sensitive to acids in food (pineapple, citrus) as well as to sour candy.
The acids we use include Ascorbic Acid, Citric Acid, Lactic Acid and Malic Acid. Please be aware that all these ingredients are approved by the FDA for use in foods and are included at levels at or below regulatory limits.
We produce only high-quality products that meet all US Federal guidelines for PH levels and ingredients, and when eaten normally, consumers enjoy them with no issues. However, some people may have an increased sensitivity to these ingredients. To ensure a fun and enjoyable eating experience, a voluntary statement is printed on every package warning that the candy is extremely sour and can be an irritation to sensitive mouths and tongues.
If your mouth experiences any irritation, sour candy is probably too extreme for your tongue and you should stick to Circus Peanuts.
