Is "some sort of" usually used only in a spoken form? or is it also possible to write it?

    You can write anything you can say, Biagio. It's vague, so it might not be received well in some contexts, but there's no reason why you couldn't write it.

    Doesn't it need to be "Some sorts of X"?
    It depends on the context and/or usage which is why the original post should really have included an complete sentence with context.
    Some sorts of candy do not contain any fat.
    This sweet thing on my plate appears to be some sort of candy.

    That's how I see it as well. It follows the same pattern as "some type/types".
