Walmart will be selling the Sour Patch Kids ice cream through the end of the year

Summer is almost here (please, for the love of all that’s good and holy let that be true) and that means barbecues, swimming pools, fireflies, and cold, creamy treats for everyone. For those of us who’ve been looking to up our ice cream game this year, we have great news — there’s Sour Patch Kids ice cream.

This week, Walmart confirmed they’ll be selling “Red, White, And Blue” Sour Patch Kids ice cream in stores nationwide through the end of 2018, which will be exclusive to the chain, Delish reports. The dessert is a mix of lemon sorbet and vanilla ice cream, which sounds pretty refreshing. Then, they added a sour Redberry swirl for fun. Finally, just to make sure folks were paying attention, they sprinkled chunks of actual blue Sour Patch Kids pieces throughout to really get those salivary glands going.

I’ve never really understood the point of eating something that makes your entire face fold into itself but, hey, for those of you who love tart this is obviously a dream come true.

All three of my kids love sour, the tangier the better, so I’m pretty sure I’ll be talked into buying this stuff by the carload this summer, as it’s something they’ll likely down in a single sitting because I work from home and will do just about anything to have a few moments of goddamn peace and quiet. What were we talking about again? Oh yeah, sour ice cream.

Last year, Sour Patch Kids teamed up with Baskin-Robbins to make a similar Sour Patch Kids-infused ice cream, broadening its reach from the candy aisle to the freezer section. They’ve also got sour-lovers covered with Sour Patch Kids gum, lollipops, jelly beans, and their original candies if you like to shake up how you get your pucker on.

Walmart’s ice cream version comes with a star-spangled lid and “Red, White, And Blue” as its official name. Each 1.5-quart tub will set you back $3.48, unless like this next Instagrammer suggests, you want to buy even more Sour Patch Kids as a topper and now every orifice in my body is officially puckered shut.

So, head on over to your nearest Walmart to stock up, your tastebuds (and kids) will thank you.
