Nerds are total flavor chaos in the form of tiny sugar nuggets with a wildly irregular shape. Initially developed in 1983, these rock candy-like sweets hit the market by storm, becoming “Candy of the Year” by the National Candy Wholesalers Association in 1985. Formerly Wonka Nerds candy owned by Nestle, and now owned by the Ferrara Candy Company, few will forget the first time the zing of “nerdom” hit their taste buds and began what would become an obsession with these colorful little sweets.
Riding on the spectrum between sweet or sour extremes, these fragments of flavor are created from a tiny sugar crystal that is repeatedly coated with even more sugar and then encased in a glossy glaze of confectioner’s wax. They all start as white until they receive their colorful flavor coats of Strawberry, Grape, Wild Cherry, Watermelon or even Wildberry and Double Dipped Lemonade craziness, just to name a few. Each box of this iconic treat has two flavors in separate sections to mix and match as you see fit. When you are ready to dive into a dual-flavored box or bag of sweet and sour sensations, get your “geek on” with the vast selection of Nerds rope candy, bumpy jelly beans, Big Chewy varieties and hard to find flavors at Candy Warehouse!
