This candy which came out in the late 80's (or was it the early 90's I'm not quite sure) was designed to be a Nerds candy rip off. It looked and tasted like Nerds only it was not quite as sour and you only got one flavor per box.

Dweebs were made by Willy Wonka which makes Nerds and they were chewy instead of crunchy. They weren't a rip off Nerds; they were Nerds' cousins.

One of my favorite candies. I was heartbroken when they stopped selling them.

Don't know where you shopped for these, but the ones I always bought had 3 flavors in a box. Yellow, Orange, and Red. They were awesome tho. Sucks they don't make them anymore.

I remember them as 3 flavors in a box; and they wee super sour! My sisters and I always split them by flavor; my little sister got the least sour ones; my big sister got the sourest ones and I got the middle ones.

Yep, Katie is right. They were Nerd cousins. I'm pretty sure you got 3 flavors in a box, too. Those were better than Nerds in my opinion. Seems like they were like twice the size of the Nerd candy.

I am thinking these are pretty much the big chewy nerds of today
