AIRHEADS Candy History
Created in 1986, AirHeads are a tangy, taffy-like, chewy candy manufactured by Perfetti Van Melle in Erlanger, Kentucky. Airheads candy comes individually wrapped in strips, and a bunch of tasty flavors. Over the years the flavors have included cherry, lemonade, watermelon, white mystery, green apple, strawberry, blue raspberry, orange, Cola, Pink Lemonade, Grape-o-licious, Mang-o-tastic, Strawberry Banana, Tutti Frutti, "Slammin' Sour" and "Flaming Hot."
After the success of the original Airheads, many other products have been developed like the Airheads Extreme Sour Belts, Airheads Fruit Bites, and the Airheads Big Bars.
