Awww yeeah, it's about to get real intense in here.
What exactly is a Warhead, you ask?
Let's ask little Opie here.
Yeah, its kinda like that.
If you're trying to figure out what it is that could possibly do this to a young child, you probably spent your childhood on Mars. Or your parents despised you enough to never buy you some of these suckers. Either way, I truly feel sorry for you.
Warheads is a brand of hard sour candy that is popular amongst young schoolchildren around the world and especially in the United States. They are notorious for being sour as hell. Do not be deceived by their small size.
Let's take a look at what the f*** is inside these miniature warheads that explode in your mouth...no not like that. According to Wikipedia:
Warheads derive their strong sour flavor primarily from malic acid which is applied as a coating to the outside of the small, hard candies. The intense sour flavor fades after about 20 to 40 seconds. The hard candy itself contains the somewhat less sour ascorbic acid and citric acid. At the center of the hard candies is a small pocket of more malic acid.Holy crap, these things have acid in them. That totally explains everything. Not only does it contain acid, but this candy is actually acid covered in more acid with acid sprinkled on and packed with more acid. And they sell this to little kids? I bet the CIA is behind this...Anyways, back on topic. Apparently there is some masochistic competition that goes on in schools to see who can eat the most warheads.
This guy's a little old to be considered a schoolkid, but still, I applaud his efforts. Can you do any better?
