Warhead Hard Seltzer

Warhead is a popular brand of tart or sour candy made by Impact Confections. The candies vary in their sourness to cater to various preferences.

The first country to invent Warheads was Taiwan in 1975. In the 1990s, The Foreign Candy Company imported them to America. Most people loved them, especially children, giving them the title’ $40 million brands’ in 1999.

It was not until 2004 that Impact Confections got the rights to manufacture warheads. Malic acid applied on the candy’s outside contributes to its sour taste. But it doesn’t last forever. The sourness fades as the candy stays in the mouth. Ascorbic and citric acid at the warheads’ central part makes the taste milder.

Currently, the company has teamed up with Artisanal Brew Works to produce its sour hard seltzer. Artisanal Brew Works is a brewery company formed by Colin Quinn and Kurt Borchardt. The duo’s search for their beer style inspired the partnership.
