I like sour candy for the same reason that I like sweet stuff - because I do.

Seriously though, is even possible to answer this question with anything other than a variant of "because they taste good"?

But for sweets it's suppose to taste good. That's why it's called sweets.

For sour snacks it's supposed to taste terrible. That's why it's called sour.

In all seriousness though, the poll shows that my opinion on sour snacks is the minority. I honestly thought it would be more split but meh.

Sour is a taste... There is nothing inherently terrible about it, and sour candy certainly isn't supposed to taste terrible. That's ridiculous.

It was a joke



Oh yeah, I like sour stuff. I also like sweet food, salty is nice too, oh and spicy. I just like food.



Because they taste good.
Why people like food?

OMG yessss, the watermelon and green apple are heavenly!! 

True, but that being said it would be nice if they had regular flavored green apple Red Vines.

Yesterday I was playing soccer with a group of friends and when were done we went into a store to buy some snacks. I bought a Pepsi and was gonna buy some regular skittles but one of my friends convinced me to get the sour flavored skittle. I hated it, the sour coding on the skittle did nothing for me so I just licked off the sour flavor so I can eat them as regular skittles. 

Do you enjoy sour flavored snacks? If you do, why?

You like fishsticks.



Chinese food for breakfast

 

People that like sour food are the same as people who like any other food. Typically, there is at least one type of food an individual person does not like that appeals to other people. Different people have a different taste palate. It is as simple as that.



Cause they are the shit. Sour flavoured jelly beans... YAAAS.

Indeed, he does like putting fishsticks in his mouth



Sometimes I like sweet, sometimes sour, and sometimes salty.  Umami is also good, about the only category I don't like for a snack is bitter.
