Rated 4 out of 5Â by Pictishchick Almost, but not quite a re-creation of the original
I was a huge fan of Regal Crown Sours as a kid, and was excited to taste them again. Since I purchased the cherry and lemon assortment, my review is mixed. The sour lemon is very close to the original, and almost tart enough, with no off flavor or aftertaste. The sour cherry, which is supposed to have had a recipe redo, tastes like a Ludens cough drop and a Regal Crown sour cherry had a baby. There isn't enough pucker and it doesn't taste like tart cherries like the original. We had a tart cherry tree and the original RC sour had that true fruit flavor. These are nice candies unless you're expecting the exact RC sour experience. I'll buy the lemon again.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by VS Not quite up to par with the original
I was very anxious to try these when someone on facebook told me about this site. I must say that the first taste is very cherry cough drop tasting. Once you get into the candy it gets kind of close to the original taste, but not quite. Not sure I'll be reordering. Also - why does it say you have the assorted rolls but when you click there the lemon comes up? I might try the assorted if you truly have them. Also I remember the grape flavor fondly, is that available?

Rated 2 out of 5Â by discocoaster Not as sour as they were
I was anxiously waiting for these but disappointed when they arrived. They are no way as sour as the originals, barely any sour taste. I was told they were remade with a newer recipe to be more sour. I cannot taste a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Karinka A flash from the past!
I just couldn't help myself when I saw the Regal Crown Sour Candies in your catalog. My father, who lived to a ripe old age, died more than 40 years ago. But,when I saw the candies it brought back vivid memories of him pulling the rolls out of his pocket and offering them around. Just from the picture, the sense of the sweet-sour pucker came rushing back. When I offered them to our grand-nieces on a recent outing, their faces were probably similar to the contentment I was remembering. Thanks for finding them again!

I was so happy to find these but I think the recipe has changed. It was not as I remembered.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Michigan Al Not Quite As Good As The Original
I used to absolutely love these candies back in the 60's and early 70's! I was so happy to see that they were back. I ordered a bunch and waited anxiously for their arrival, remembering the intense sour cherry flavor that these candies had. Well, they are OK tasting and I like them, but they just are not as good as the original Sour Cherry Regal Crowns. I hope that the recipe can be improved upon. PLEASE!
