The theme for this month's Loot Crate, a monthly subscription for geeks and gamers, was Transform! At $18/month each crate has something new and different. Unfortunately, sometimes that different shows up as candy nobody likes.

Here's how Loot Crate tries to convince you that Warheads Candy have something to do with Transformers:

Want to try a candy that transforms from sour to sweet? Pop a Warhead in your mouth and your lips may pucker, but the reward will be oh so sweet! And I mean, come on, who doesn’t want some awesomely fun candy?

See what they did there? It "transforms" from sour to sweet! Get it? Wikipedia provides more info:

Warheads (trademarked as WARHEADS) is a brand of sour candy manufactured by Impact Confections. The candy was invented in Taiwan in 1975 and was first imported to the United States by The Foreign Candy Company of Hull, Iowa in the early 1990s. For a while, special ("HOT") versions of the candy were also available but proved to be less popular. They are currently manufactured and distributed in the United States by Impact Confections and in Australia by Funtastic Limited. They proved to be very popular, especially with children; in 1999, Warheads were referred to as a "million brand." Impact Confections acquired the brand in 2004.

Still not convinced? Us neither. We rated this candy "nope, fail" (one star). You can purchase this candy at Amazon.
