About the candy/acid... that would be because the main ingredient in sour candy is citric acid, which is from citris fruits. So eating lemons is similar in acidity.

Also I found something at a grocery store about a year ago, its called Sour Salt in the kosher section. Its just pure powdered citric acid, so one could add that to any candy and turn it sour.

As a Chemist, let me make one thing clear. pH is concentration dependent. So, really, when they measured the pH of those candies, what is more important to know is how much candy they put into how much water. Without knowing that information, that info is pretty much irrelevant.

Out of curiosity, what field do you practice/work in? Would you happen to be in the food industry?
