AirHeads Xtremes Sweetly Sour Rolls

There's a lot to be said for movie candy. For one thing, there are a world of sweet and sour candies to choose from, such as Strawberry AirHeads Xtremes Sweetly Sour Rolls. I'm not an AirHeads fan, but you could do worse for a video store point of purchase food.

They have an odd taste, initially, as I find AirHeads do, but that's easily ignored by unrolling the whole thing into your yap. Trying to stop it unraveling is like trying to close a revolving door, so unroll away, son.
The faux fruit rolls are sprinkled with a kind of Pixy Stix dust, as sweet sour candies are. They don't go well with nacho cheese flavored chips—who would have guessed. They did suite The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford quite nicely, slowly unrolling to the thick center along with the story.
They're not on the Gummi Food Pyramid because of that weird AirHeads aftertaste, but they are worth sneaking into the theater, or having on hand for a post Oscar DVD binge. But be warned, if you eat them too quickly, you can choke on the sweet sour dust and end up sounding like Casey Affleck.
Also Xtreme, people giving up all hope of living in a world without snow, and putting skis on their bikes, like this guy at Elver Park.

I've got more sledding photos on flickr.


  1. My daughter ripped up the insides of her cheeks with these! I told her maybe she should s-l-o-w down a little & not eat them all at once! HAHA!

    I won't touch 'em....not chocolate.

  2. They're hard to stop eating. It's as if they unroll on their own, seriously, try it. Did she sound like Casey Affleck in Jesse James?
    You people and your chocolate! I say this knowing there's a hunk of imported dark chocolate "hidden" with the baking supplies at all times.

  3. that is so cool. A bike on skis? He should put a motor on it, and it'd be like a scooter. VROOM!!

  4. This guy was really working the hill.

  5. I;m not much into airheads but my boys like them, and those do look pretty! What a cool ski/bike!

  6. I know it's not as cool as an outhouse on skis, but this guy had some serious skills. He said he built it from a kit.
    I'm not an AirHeads fan, but can't resist trying all sweet/sour gummi/licorice type candy.
