These French caramels are hard to chew at first but once they warm up on your tongue, the magic begins. They come in fruity, sour, nougat, and even cola and peach iced tea flavors. It’s like everything you always wanted Starbursts to be.
Swedish chocolate-covered toffee goodness. Available at Ikea.
3. Milka Chocolate
Dark chocolate lovers beware! Hailing from Germany, Milka is the smoothest, sweetest, richest damn chocolate in all the lands. It comes in a variety of flavors, such as Oreo…
4. Kinder Bueno
We are all familiar with the German Kinder Eggs, but Kinder Bueno is a bar of creamy, chocolate, hazelnut goodness!
5. Haribo Orangina
“Adults and children love it so, the happy world of Haribo!” We love the gummy bears, letters, the sour assortments, but this particular French bag of Haribo will bring your soda cravings and candy cravings together in gelatin form. Yum!
6. Rowntrees Fruit Pastilles
These English gumdrops taste the way you always wanted gumdrops to taste: chewy, sweet, and just a hint of tang.
7. Maynards Wine Gums
No, they don’t have booze in them, but each flavor is supposed to represent a different type of wine or alcohol: port, Burgundy, cherry, etc. Really though, they’re just fruit-flavored.
Fabricated in Brazil and Mexico, Bubbaloo is a syrup-filled bubble gum. Those who don’t like Gushers should not try this.
9. Hai Chews
Remember Jolly Ranchers Fruit Chews? Remember Welch’s Fruit Snacks? Japanese Hai Chews blow them out of the water. Plus they come in one-flavor packages. None of this “Do you want my cherries and oranges?” business.
Also Japanese, Ramune is a sweet and delicious carbonated soda that is really fun to open. A marble in the cap keeps the soda pressurized. In order to open the bottle, a piece of plastic comes with the bottle specially made to help you push the marble into the bottle. No, you can’t keep the marble without smashing the bottle. Sorry hoarders.
11. Egg Custard Tarts
Hong Kong knows where it’s at with these bad boys. The crust is light and flaky, almost like a croissant, and the egg custard is everything you’ve always wanted from flan without needing a spoon.
Better known as Turkish Delight, Loukoum is a thick, gelatinous candy flavored with extracts ranging from orange flower to violet. It can have nuts in it, and it always is covered in powdered sugar and/or coconut.
