Chips Ahoy! Sour Patch Kids Cookies Hit Shelves in May
Cookies and candies combine for one special treat.
Update April 27, 2020: A date has been announced! The Chips Ahoy! Sour Patch Kids Inspired Limited Edition Cookies are available beginning May 2020. The cookies with "the crunchy, sweet texture of Chips Ahoy! Cookie, combined with sweet and sour candy bits inspired by Sour Patch Kids Candy" will retail for just under $3.
Earlier: If you love Sour Patch Kids and Chips Ahoy! as much as we do (which is a lot, if we're being honest), then get ready to shock your taste buds with a great new sugary combination that's sour and sweet all wrapped up in one treat. There's just one catch — you have to wait until sometime in 2020. We're hoping it's January, but more details are to come.
Posted on Instagram account @junkfoodleaks_, the confectionary news went viral, and the photo showed a box of Chips Ahoy! but with a Sour Patch Kids cookie on it. The Chips Ahoy! Sour Patch Kids collaboration is limited edition, as shown on the box.
"I wanted to hate these so bad," @junkfoodleaks_ captioned the photos. "This is a concoction crafted only by those crazy enough to think that it could work. But you know what? It kinda DOES work. I don't get it. I really don't."
A reviewer who also tasted the cookies said you can taste both the cookie and sour flavors — both are apparent and yet work swimmingly together. The Sour Patch candies have shown up in DQ's Blizzard. Post released a Sour Patch Kids cereal last year, too. So should be be surprised a cookie works well? Perhaps not.
So, what do you think? Gross? Amazing? Either way, we hope we get to try them out in 2020.
