You HAVE to Try All These Festive Holiday Candies From Sour Punch and Red Vines

When you think of holiday treats, licorice and sour straws probably aren't the first confections to come to mind. Maybe it's time to change that way of thinking.

That's because American Licorice Company, the brand behind Red Vines, Sour Punch and more, offers some pretty sweet Christmasy goodies every year, and we can't get enough. This year, American Licorice Co. kindly graced us with a big box of their holiday candies to try ourselves, and here's what we thought of them all:

Red Vines Gingerbread Twists

We're all about fascinating new flavors from Red Vines, and what could be better for the holidays than gingerbread-flavored licorice sticks? Though these have a slightly tougher texture than the classic Red Vines, they're deliciously packed with a chewy, caramel-like cookie flavor that'll keep you coming back for more.

Red Vines Original Red Winter Twists

Love Original Red Vines? We can't get enough of the soft, fruity classic, and in this festive, winter-specific packaging, the treats are as snackable and sweet as ever.

Sour Punch Santa Straws

Now on to the sour stuff! Sour Punch never disappoints with their bold, mouth-puckering flavor combinations, and believe us when we say they don't tone it down just because they're Christmas-themed. Their Santa Straws come in seasonal Green Apple and Berry flavors in Santa-appropriate red and green, and they're just the thing for celebrating the holiday.

Sour Punch Arctic Straws

Last, but certainly not least, are Sour Punch's Arctic Straws, which come in ultra-sour Frozen Flurry, Green Glacier, Arctic Avalanche and Polar Plunge flavors in purple, green and two shades of blue. Expect bold berry and citrus flavors from the pack, which will satisfy even the most adventurous candy-lovers.
