WARHEADS adds new flavors to its iconic Extreme Sour Hard Candy product line

JANESVILLE, WISCONSIN – WARHEADS is making history with the launch of its newest product, WARHEADS Extreme Sour SMASHUPS Hard Candy. It is the first time in WARHEADS history that the iconic, mouth puckering, extreme sour hard candies are getting a new flavor variety.

“This is our first flavor expansion and a very exciting time for the brand,” says Jenna Rebout, Brand Manager of Impact Confections Inc. “WARHEADS fans have been asking for more flavors and we are thrilled to be able to give them exactly what they want in these new offerings.”

WARHEADS Extreme Sour SMASHUPS Hard Candy takes the original candy kids know and love, and smashes two flavors into every piece. Flavor combinations include lemon berry, strawberry grape, orange pineapple, mango melon, and cherry lime.

“We’re on the forefront of two major trends happening in the candy world right now,” Rebout explains. “Sour candy has grown 12 times faster than non-chocolate candy since last year. And now, Generation Z is demanding more flavors, unique flavors and intense flavor experiences. Between the five unique flavor combinations and the extreme sour flavor, WARHEADS Extreme Sour SMASHUPS Hard Candy is a clear winner.”

WARHEADS Extreme Sour SMASHUPS Hard Candy comes in 2 oz. and 3.25 oz. peg bags with a suggested retail price of $1.49 to $1.99. Each bag contains five flavor combinations and a best-in-class sour level. Each peg bag is packed 12 per case. The new product is available starting December 1st, 2016.
