10 Unusual Candies You Must Try
Take a walk on the wild side and brave the wonderful world of carrot candy & sausage jelly beans.
The weird, the wacky and the wonderful. Here at Candy Hero we have a good mix of all three! In the ever-evolving candy world, there's always something new to try, some taste you can't even imagine, some unheard of combination. Here are 10 of our favourite unusual candies you really must try.
1. Ranch Flavour Mints
Each one of these little white Ranch Mints is infused with the delicious flavour of thick and creamy ranch dressing! Pop some in your mouth while you're eating hot wings or sprinkle some on a salad for an extra boost of crunchy flavour!
2. Jolly Rancher Green Apple Pop-Tarts
If you want the taste of warming homemade apple pie in your Pop-Tart, these are not for you! These Pop-Tarts are Jolly Rancher green apple CANDY flavour, not some delicate cinnamon-spiked lady apple flavour. Anyone who's ever tasted a Jolly Rancher Green Apple Candy will understand the sour, mega-intensity of the apple candy flavour at play here. All inside a breakfast toastie!
3. Lotte Black Black Gum
In addition to the traditional mint flavour, Lotte Black Black chewing gum is flavoured with oolong tea extract, ginko entract and chrysanthemum flower extract. Alongside these interesting ingredients, lies the key ingredient, caffeine! This charcoal grey chewing gum is actually highly caffeinated and to reflect this image, is only ever marketed in Japan by strong men!
4. Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans
Considering the flavours include; black pepper, booger, dirt, earthworm, earwax, grass, rotten egg, sausage, soap and vomit, we'd say these beans are pretty weird! Unlike everything else on this list, these beans are not actually supposed to taste nice! Obviously you want to try them now!
Djungelvral means "Jungle Roar", which is exactly what you will do upon eating one of these monkey shaped liquorice pieces which have been covered in a super salty liquorice dust! They are an all-time favourite for Swedish salty liquorice lovers and are quickly gaining a reputation outside of Sweden amongst Salmiak fans.
6. Chocolate Collon
They say don't judge a book by its cover, and this could never be more accurate than for these Japanese biscuits! Despite their bizarre, thought-provoking name and shape, Collon are just little crispy biscuit tubes filled to the brim with a delicious fluffy chocolate cream.
7. Vegetable Candy
The next time some nutrition-loving Goody Two-Shoes preaches about swapping the candy for a healthier treat, wave some Vegetable Candy in their face! Green bean, carrot and corn flavoured candy to be exact! These striped hard candies surely cover three of your five a day?
8. Edible Anus
There's nothing unusual about wanting to eat fine, hand-crafted Belgian chocolates, but perhaps eating ones in the shapes of bum holes is slightly weird! Edible Anus come in three delicious varieties: meek milk, dilated dark, and tight white! A fun present for all kinds of occasions!
9. Astronaut Food Neapolitan Ice Cream Sandwich
This may be an unusual way to eat ice cream, but what doesn't make sense on a practical level about a freeze-dried Neapolitan Ice Cream Sandwich? It can be stored in a hot car, takes no preparation to make, can be given to kids with no stress about the mess. A delicious, crunchy, yet creamy sweetness that melts in your mouth, sandwiched between two chocolatey wafer cookies. Frozen in time but not in temperature!
10. Screamin' Dill Pickle Pringles Xtra
Flavouring a crisp like dill pickle seems like an unusual choice. Dill pickles are basically just small, wet and sour cucumbers. Saying that, the dill pickle crisp is a wonderful thing. Hailed as 'the new salt 'n' vinegar', dill pickle packs a powerful punch. For the most powerful punch of all, you really need to try the Screamin' Dill Pickle Pringles. These will make you pucker up like a prune!
