Yes, we could be a little too old to get excited about this, but it's cool dammit, so shut up. Stride has partnered with the makers of Sour Patch Kids to create a brand new line of SPK-flavored gum, available in stores come January. Let's pause a moment to let this sink in. Sour Patch Kid gum exists, people. Whoever said growing up had to be a bad thing?

Currently the only flavors available are redberry and lime, so lemon and orange fans: well, sucks to suck. Early promo images reveal the packaging takes its cues from the original yellow Sour Patch box, though we wonder if it won't also draw more than a few comparisons to that other kid-friendly chewing gum, Juicy Fruit. Best of all, it's sugar-free.

Stride Sour Patch Kids: $1.29 for a single pack and $2.89 for a multipack.
