All the Red (a.k.a. the Best) Candy You Can Buy on Amazon

Red Candy on Amazon
Not a green Life Saver in sight.

Everyone knows that red candies are the best (with the exception of pineapple gummy bears and “mystery” Airheads, which, frankly, always tasted “red” to us). While there is some evidence that having subpar flavors like yellow and green around makes the reds taste that much better, we would like to respectfully disagree. Luckily, there are people who have separated the red Starbursts, Laffy Taffies, and Sour Patch Kids for us, and you can find them deep within the bowels of Amazon — the best of which we’ve surfaced below.
