Dweebs were a larger, soft and chewy version of the popular candy Nerds produced by The Willy Wonka Candy Company, owned by Nestle.

Dweebs were introduced in the early 1990s, and were only available for a few years before being discontinued. Although slightly softer than Nerds, Dweebs were difficult to distinguish from Nerds themselves and thus lasted a very short time on the market.

One notable difference from Nerds is that Dweebs came in boxes with three compartments, rather than two. This arrangement allowed for packing a third flavor in each box.

Each box came in three different flavors, they included Punch, Strawberry, Orange, and Cherry.

A variation called ‘Super Sower Dweebs’ were also available for a period of time.
