While candies are traditionally thought of as a sweet treat, many prefer the combination of tart and sugary that comes with good sour candy. While such confectioneries definitely have a kick, fans of sour candies know it's worth it for the delicious flavor. What are the best types of sour candy? Help decide below! 

Sweet and sour candy is often initially hard on the taste buds, but as the sourness wears down you can really taste the flavor. Much like spicy food, Sour Patch Kids and Lemonheads are for those who want their food to come with a bit of a challenge. Who hasn't enjoyed powering through the first 30 seconds of a Warhead only to get to the sweet taste in the center? While conventional gummy worms and bears are great, sour gummy candy adds a little something extra. 

Below, you'll find some of the most delicious sour candy out there. Vote up the best choices and feel free to add anything you think is missing!
