It’s summer, and that means more outdoor picnics and lounging by the pool. What could be more fitting of the season than sipping on a spiked seltzer as you enjoy a tan? Now, candy brand Warheads has released its own line of hard seltzers, so you can enjoy the taste of nostalgia alongside the summer sun.
Warheads’ parent company, Impact Confections, partnered with Artisanal Brew Works – a brewery based in Saratoga Springs, New York – to concoct five oh-so-sour seltzer flavors. You’ll get to choose from black cherry, lemon, blue raspberry, green apple, and watermelon. The colorful packaging on the can is just right for the summer, resembling the 90s candy itself.
“They’re sweet, they’re slightly tart, and they’re unlike any hard seltzer you’ve had before,” said the brewery.
As per Delish, each can consists a seltzer of 5% alcohol, and is gluten-free, which is a boon for those on a gluten-free diet looking for a summer drink.
Customers can stop by the brewery in Saratoga Springs for a tasting, or purchase a pack at stores it distributes to. The seltzer is currently available in California, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York.
Artisanal Brew Works told Food & Wine that the seltzers are supposed to be “true to the candy,” replicating the iconic point “when the Warheads candy transitions from the sour phase to the flavor phase.”
Already tasting it? For more information on where to get your hands on a can, head over to the brewery’s Instagram page.
