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 in the early 1980s. 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 '$40 million brand.' Impact Confections acquired the brand in 2004.
