Sour Patch Kids Cereal Is Officially Hitting Shelves—And We're Not Quite Sure How To Feel

We haven't been this conflicted since Oreo introduced new flavors like Cherry Cola, Piña Colada and Kettle Corn.

Sour Patch Kids is taking the whole sour thing to a whole new level with the introduction of Sour Patch Kids Cereak. On one hand, sour fruit flavors, yes! On the other, sour with milk, bleh!

Today is reporting the new cereal will be sold exclusively at Walmart beginning the day after Christmas. Thrillist had a preview of the candy flavored cereal and gave this report:

"There's the crunch from a corn/wheat-based sugary breakfast cereal... but something was different! Holy moly, they nailed the sour flavors. And not in a bad way, because it's also still very much a sugary cereal. The tagline for SPK is "Sour Then Sweet," and this is it, chief. How the heck did they make cereal taste like this?!"

So far things aren't looking so good.

Some were a bit more conflicted, which is better than a hard no.

Others could see the potential.

The jury is still out on this one.
