Want to Drink Your Lemonheads? Your Favorite Candies Might Be Ciders Soon

Do you love Jujyfruits, Cherryheads, Grapeheads, Lemonheads, and Red Hots? Do you love them so much you want to enjoy them as a cider drink? If so, and if recent trademark filings at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office are any indication, your dream may be coming true.

On April 15th, Ferrara Candy Company (the owner of Super Bubble, Red Hots, and Now & Laters, among others) filed five federal trademark applications for each of the candy trademarks listed below.
But Ferrara did not file these trademark applications for candy. Instead, the candy company filed each application in Class 032 for "non-alcoholic cider." Check out the RED HOTS application here

Each application was filed on an intent-to-use basis, meaning Ferrara is [probably] not using these trademarks with cider yet, but has a bona fide intention to do so in the near future. In other words, the company is taking some steps to make this drink a reality. So if you want to drink Red Hots, check store shelves soon.
