GENIUS.

Just a few months ago, the makers of Laffy Taffy cruelly decided to unleash a banana-only bag upon the world. Why? Your guess is as good as mine. It’s been a hard pill to swallow for lovers of delicious candy everywhere. 

But Sour Patch Kids is here to remind us that where there is darkness, there is always light: You can buy blue-only and red-only bags of everyone’s favorite sour-then-sweet treat at 7-Eleven stores. 

“Ask and you shall receive,” Sour Patch Kids announced on Facebook on June 26. “Blue & Red packs available for a limited time at 7-Eleven!”

While the orange-, green-, and yellow-colored gummies aren’t quite as disgusting as Laffy Taffy’s banana nightmare, you have to admit that they’re really just bag fillers.

That’s right, friends. No more digging. No more disappointment. No more forcing down flavors you don’t really want just because they’re there. 

The limited-edition red and blue bags (cherry and raspberry, if you must call them by their real names) are available now, but they won’t be on shelves forever—so stock up while you can.
