Warheads logo[continued from above]
Warheads are marketed as an "extreme" candy and the name comes from the idea that the sour taste is like a real "warhead" exploding in one's mouth. The brand's mascot, Wally Warheads, is depicted as a boy with puckered lips and a small mushroom cloud coming out of the top of his head.


Warheads memories

When I was in kindergarten in the mid-nineties, there was a book reading program where we'd be rewarded with a small treat for every book we finished. Being a prolific reader even at that age, I immediately gamed the system by reading a bunch of thin picture books.

One of the parents or something was watching the table that day, it was one of my classmate's dads. I doubt it was because of me specifically, but he'd brought in a huge bag of warheads! He told me they were fantastic. Imagine a little kindergartener's squidge face with one or two of those warheads! If I remember correctly, I got enough to bring home to my brother as well. ~ Nick from Illinois

 

 We would go to our local skating rink and buy a bag, everyone would stick their war head in their mouth and laugh at how hour faces would change. I on the hand was scared and would stick mine under the water fountain until I was certain the sour part was gone and would stick in the sweet part.. Hoping no one noticed :) ~Meggan from Washington



When warheads first came out, my brother was home from the Air Force on Christmas vacation. He told my oldest nephew that he had a surprise for him. He put a stool in the middle of our living room and gathered us all around. He told my nephew, who was a dare devil, that he'd give him 20$ if he could keep that candy in his mouth for 1 min. Needless to say, he wasn't able to. Now, having more experience with the candy, he might be able to seeing that my children can now do it. We have a picture of my nephew on that stool with the most hilarious face! The warhead test has become a "coming of age" saga that continues to this day. ~Sandy from Georgia
