Who doesn't love Lemonheads?! They have a bit of pucker and a bit chewy. I love them by themselves or using them in bark.

Lemonheads Bark

1 PKG of white almond bark
1 PKG of Lemonheads
Lemon flavoring

Melt almond bark in microwave, best in 15-30 second intervals until melted
Add in lemon flavoring to your liking
Crush up Lemonheads
Make a 1/4" layer of the almond bark on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
Sprinkle crushed up Lemonheads on top
Break into chunks

This is a childhood favorite that I still love occasionally today! Lemonheads are small round candies that have a lemon coating that goes from sweet to a little sour once you have sucked all the lemon coating off and have come to the white part of the candy! The are good sweet snack for a kid or an adult, not really good for your teeth but hay live a little!

Love, love, love this candy. I'm not really a chocolate person, but give me sour and tart, and I will eat the whole box! Anytime I pass these in the candy section, I can't walk by without picking up a box. I was just in a penny candy store at the beach, and bought like 10 of the large Lemonheads! So yummy!

I love sour candy so much and lemon heads are defintely sour. I eat this about once a week , I love that I can find them at Wal-Mart for under a 1$
I also love that they are a little crunchy then chewy

I live for these .... in the near future I picture myself swimming in a pool of these lovely treats ... Im a singer as well and lemons help coat the throat ... I usually skip warm ups and eat lemon heads as a cheat that I'll soon regret and jump straight into singing .... I LOVE THEM ūüėć ‚ô•ÔłŹ

Who doesn’t love a lemonhead?! Favorite treat for a movie or just a sweet tooth. I can usually find them in a large box for $1 at rite aid or Walgreens or even Walmart. Worth every penny.

this sweet treat has always been one of my favorites.  They're solid and a little sweet and a little sour.  You get a big box for only $1 at most department stores.  Lemonheads are so nostalgic.  I've been enjoying them since I was young.

Oh how I love lemon heads. Some are sweet some are sour and they're all mixed up in a box so you don't know which is which. These candies are just so good. If you don't like the taste of lemon then you won't like these but otherwise you'll be obsessed.

Is the classic Lemon flavor your favorite? Or do you like the Grapehead, Applehead, or Orangehead better?
