The Hard Facts About Sour Candies

  •  In the past 20 years, candies marketed to children have increasingly been of a “fruity” or “sour” variety
  • Sour candies are very acidic, with a low pH level (Acid Levels in Sour Candies).
  • Some candy is so acidic it can actually burn gums and cheeks.
  • Acid weakens and wears away tooth enamel.
  • Teeth without protective enamel are prone to tooth decay.
  • Each acid attack lasts about 20 minutes.
  • Holding the acid in your mouth by prolonged candy sucking or chewing continues the acid attack.
