Do you like sweet tarts? I love them and I love the ones you get around Valentines day. I also like the Willy Wonka type.

SweeTarts are sweet and sour candies invented by J. Fish Smith, the owner of Sunline. The tablets were created using the same recipe as the already popular Pixy Stix and Lik-M-Aid in response to parents' requests for a less messy candy. In 1963 SweeTarts were introduced with the same flavors as the popular Pixy Stix: cerry, grape, lemon, lime, and orange. The Sunline componany was later bought by Rowntree Mackintosh, of the United Kingdom, which was, in turn, taken over by Nestle. Nestle rolled the SweeTarts family of candies into the already-existing Willy Wonky Candy Company family of brands. The current flavors in the SweeTarts roll are: blue raspberry, cherry, grape, green apple, lemon, and orange. In 2001, Nestle chose to replace the original lime with green apple.
