Mike and Ike Review-A-Thon Part 4

Sour candies really started to take off in the 1980s.  At that time candy went through a kind of renaissance that lead to the popularization of gummy bears, pop rocks, and many other strange candy.  At the time there were sour candies, but they weren't extremely sour.  From the 1980s and into the 1990s candy companies became creative with the use of certain candy characteristics, and the sour candy bloomed.  Fortunately many of the trends from this time period have not vanished, and you can find many of them still available.  I'll argue that the candy industry isn't as creative as it used to be, but they are still using these great innovative candy trends.
