Sour candy, in and of itself, does not cause tooth decay just like cold temperatures do not cause the common cold. Eating sour candy, which is loaded with sugar, and not following good dental hygiene practices, will promote the growth of bacteria/plaque that WILL cause tooth decay. So, eat sour candy, rinse, brush your teeth, see a dentist, and you should be fine.

Well, because your taste buds are used to the sweetness of the candy and so when you drink the juice it seems sour.

Usually, citric acid. Look it up, there's tons of info. For the extreme-pucker-up candies, there's malic acid, which is so strong that dentists use it to dissolve peoples' enamel before tooth surgery.
