Jolly Rancher Has A New Tropical Mix And These Hard Candies Taste Even Better As Shots

When it comes to hard candy, is there any brand as iconic as Jolly Ranchers? The adventurous have tried these fruit-flavored sweets in cereal or Pop-Tarts form. But, as our test kitchen discovered, they taste even better as vodka shots.

You’re already intimately familiar with the flavors in the iconic original bag: blue raspberry, cherry, grape, green apple, and watermelon. Just in time for summer, Hershey has given us a whole new way to enjoy Jolly Ranchers by releasing a new tropical mix that’s destined to transport our taste buds to an island in the sun.

This new mix includes a blend of four new flavors: fruit punch, golden pineapple, lime, and mango flavors. They come in a resealable blue bag, which makes sharing with friends quite simple. But we have a feeling you’ll want to hold onto your entire bag, because it takes approximately 10 candies of the same color to make a batch of Jolly Ranchers Shots. A 13 oz.-bag costs only $3.60 at Walmart, so you won’t mind buying an extra one or two in order to make sure you have enough of each flavor to mix with your vodka of choice.

ICYMI: These fruity rectangles completely dissolve in vodka, unlike their cousins gummy bears and Skittles. After you patiently place them in a refrigerator overnight, you’ll wake up to mason jars full of fruity and sweet vodka. Forget Lemon Drops, these are truly the way to go.
