Sour Patch Kids ice cream could either be a dream come true or a disaster

When you come home from a truly terrible day, what's the first thing you do? If you're like a lot of people (myself included) you reach for the nearest pint of ice cream, sit back and let each spoonful sweeten up your sour day. Now, what if we told you there was a new ice cream that was full of more sour than sweet goodness?

It's true. Sour Patch Kids ice cream is officially a reality, and it’s for sale as we speak (and scratch our heads). While we’re all about the current move in dessert nostalgia, this is a pretty weird one if you ask us.

Couldn’t wait any longer to bust into this. From Nestle Dreyers Ice Cream Company here’s Sour Patch Kids Red, White and Blue Light Ice Cream and sorbet. Lemon sorbet and vanilla light ice cream with a Redberry swirl and blue Sour Patch Kids Bitz. This stuff is amazing. if Sour is what you’re looking for it’s here. The combo ice cream/sorbet works great and has a tart lemon flavor. The Blue Bitz are actual pieces of sp Kids - most pieces are small but I got a few half- sized pieces. What makes this Sour is the Redberry Swirl. Yikes- if you get a spoonful of it I guarantee your face will pucker up. This may not be for everyone but if you like sour sweets you’ll love this“Sour then Sweet Get It Before It’s Gone “. Nestle Dreyers.

The news was originally revealed via JunkFoodMom’s Instagram, but lots of people have been posting to Twitter saying they have already spotted it on shelves in Walmart stores.

The new ice cream is officially called Sour Patch Kids Red, White and Blue and is a combination of vanilla ice cream and lemon sorbet. The sorbet and ice cream mix is combined with something called “redberry swirl” and bits of blue Sour Patch Kids. The “redberry swirl” seems to be, per JunkFoodMom, a liquefied red Sour Patch Kid and is a puckerworthy level of sour.

Yes, we’re kind of skeptical, but JunkFoodMom, who was lucky enough to have a taste, says it’s actually pretty good.
