First off, my 4-star rating is for people who WANT an extremely sour candy. On a more objective scale this candy would easily rank zero or one stars. I have heard this described as "disgusting stuff" and for most people, this would surely be the case.

Nobel Super Lemon is often cited as "the most sour candy in the world," so it seemed like the ideal gift for my old boss -- who loves sour candy and has impossible standards. He thought it was adequately sour, but he claims to have eaten candies that are stronger. I'm less of a sour-candy fanatic, and found it to be extremely sour. It makes my saliva glands sore and I wince in intense discomfort. My mouth is instantly flooded with drool and my speech is impaired for a short while.

All candies of this type appear to be normal hard candies with a thin layer of sour dust on them. This means, of course, that the extreme sourness only lasts a few seconds before you are sucking on a generic lemon-flavored hard candy.

Comparing this to other extremely sour candies I've tried, however, I can't say that this one is obviously any more sour. Mega Warheads are about the same. However, if you've tried Tearjerkers Extra Sour Gum, this definitely goes a step beyond that. Skittles and other "tangy" fruit candy would not be considered sour at all in comparison.

For people in North America, Mega Warheads are basically the same product, but at a better value. Mega Warheads also come in a package with candies of different flavors, making for a marginally more interesting product.

The candy it self tastes very good. It reminds me of a lemon head. However, the sourest part is the outside. It has some sort of powder on it. The thing is, its not that sour. I was expecting something like a Warhead but it didn't even come close. It gets sweeter and sweeter the longer you suck on it. I guess I'd be more happy with it if it wasn't supposed to be sour because that's what I was expecting. Overall, it tastes really good but the sour is a bit underhwelming.

Tastes the same as what I used to have when I was a kid. Each one is individually wrapped so the quality is very consistent. I agree that the sour part is short-lived -- I am actually glad that's how it is -- otherwise it becomes quite hard to bear, haha! Glad that I can find this on amazon. Thank you!

For those of us Sour Candy aficionados this is about as good as it gets. It is a shame that the initial sour blast goes away so soon and all you are left with is a boring old lemon drop. It has an advantage over the Warheads mega sour candy because the sourness tastes distinctly like lemon and does not have the chemical undertones that the Warheads do. In addition the lemon drop is better than the pathetic candy that you are left with when the sour part of a warhead is finished.

Used to get these in the mid-80's while stationed in Japan. The 2006 packaging is exactly the same!! I love to pop one in my mouth while keeping a straight face and offer one to an unsuspecting victim... The sour part is pretty awful, but the lemon candy underneath is quite tasty.

These candies are very good - super sour for the first 10 to 15 seconds and then a nice lemon flavored hard candy after that. My problem is the price - $7.99 for a 2.6 ounce bag. Too much, in my opinion.

Excellent lemon candy. You get a very intense burst of sour right off the bat but it only lasts 10 or 15 seconds and its just a lemon candy.

Excellent tasting, hard candy with a very potent sour coating that will give you pucker factor for a good 10 seconds. After that its a lemon drop.

Disney World Epcot also sells these for $3.99 for 3.1oz.

These are coated with a fine, super-sour 'Warheads'-type of powder (ascorbic, citric and malic acids I belive)that once gone, reveals a pleasant, if unremarkable lemon candy. I agree with Shervyn below that the sour coating has a less chemical flavor than domestic Warheads brand, making them 'better'.

They are good, but their (relatively) high price makes them a "Glad I tried them, won't bother again" item for me. YMMV.
