Dear Millennials, If You Happen To Have A Discontinued Tin Of "Altoids Sours" From 15 Years Ago They're Worth Bank Now

I am both repulsed and intrigued.

Remember Altoids Sours?

That tart taste, the cute tin, the citrus shape, the rattle it made when you took them out of your bag? I can hear my friends asking me for one, and then another, eventually eating me out of house and home.

Simpler times.

Well, I just found out they're selling on eBay for a lot of money, like a crazy amount of money for a tin of expired candy that has molded into hardened goop.

PBS

Take for example this can of mango sours:

"Candy is stuck together, expired 2009, the seal is intact all around. Not for consumption, consuming them is up to you," the description deliciously says.

That sold for $1,000.

eBay

$1,000!!!!!

Or these tangerine sours:

"Candy is stuck together and expired around 2005. I used to eat these all the time and now I'm selling off my stock pile. Anyone who had these knew they were the best."

$197.50!!

ebay

Sheesh.

PBS

Four tins of expired sours?

That'll be $349.99, ma'am.

ebay

I guess that's a deal?

PBS

This empty, EMPTY, tin of passion fruit sours:

$100!!!!

ebay

What.

PBS

OK lastly, this tin of opened hardened goop:

They're trying to sell that for $99.

You can't even eat it!!

PBS

In general, these things are worth money.

eBay

You can usually find empty tins for about $10, and if you're lucky you can snatch up a sealed tin of expired candy goop for $50+.

So, if for some godforsaken reason you have a tin of Sour Altoids hanging around, you might want to sell them.
