These aren’t your mama’s Nerds.

Nerds are BACK, baby, and they’re and better than ever.

Well, I guess they never really went anywhere—they kinda just slowly faded into the early 2000s abyss.

But the teeny tiny candy of your youth is experiencing something of a renaissance, and we couldn’t be happier.

Following last year’s successful launch of Big Chewy Nerds, Ferrara Candy Company just announced that it’s rolling out Sour Big Chewy Nerds.

The new fruit-flavored candy will feature a sour chewy center covered in a sweet candy shell.

"After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from consumers across the nation for our Big Chewy Nerds, it only made sense to take things up a notch with the introduction of Sour Big Chewy Nerds," said Kelly Peyser, Nerds senior brand manager, in a press release. "We are constantly looking for new ways to excite our fans, and are thrilled to satisfy not only sweet tooth cravings, but sour ones, too!”

New flavors include Brainiac Blue Raspberry, Streaming Strawberry Lemonade, Wiki Watermelon, and Blood Orange Byte. Sour Big Chewy Nerds are available in select markets now, but they’ll be available nationwide in early April.
