We all know how much I love candy! There are so many varieties of candy, I could talk about it every day. I could also eat it every day. Here in the United States, we all have our favorites. But what about around the world? Every country has its own form of sweets, some in the form of baked goods and some in the form of delicious wrapped treats that can be shipped right to your door.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for your candy lover, how about going international? Let your candy lover see what else is out there in the world. I’ve asked around, shopped at some local markets, and done some very tasty sampling, all in the name of research, and I’ve come up with a list of five international candies that will make the perfect gift for your candy lover.
Did somebody say Marzipan? Did somebody say peanuts? If you haven’t tried one of these crumbly treats, then you are in for a delicious surprise. Imagine crushed peanuts pressed together into the perfect little rounded treat. They melt in your mouth, and unlike many other candies, because of the substance of these candies, you can eat just one and be satisfied, making a box last much longer. Also, they aren’t chocolate, making them able to be shipped anytime of the year. Your candy lover will thank you for introducing them to these delicious classic Mexican candies.
Perhaps a creamier treat is more in line with what your candy lover enjoys. Might I suggest White Rabbit Cream Candies, a Chinese creation of perfection? These bite-size little gems are delicious and come in a variety of flavors, including Classic Creamy, Chocolatey, Cool, Corn, Deep Milk, Green Tea, Red Bean, and Yoghourt. I’ve only tried the cream myself, but if someone ordered me one bag of each flavor, I would consider it a taste-testing party of epic proportion. I may even invite some friends over to join me in the sampling.
I enjoy staying close to my Polish heritage, and as such, I’d love to mention these amazing treats! Let me introduce you to Solidarnosc Candied Plums in Dark Chocolate, a treat that is perfect for those who love sweet dark chocolate and fruit. Don’t confuse these with simple sugar plums. These sweet treats are a major step above that. Yes, they are a little pricier than your average candy, but every delicious plum will be worth it. From the first taste, your candy lover is going to be hooked. Because of the chocolate, I’d recommend making sure the weather isn’t too hot before ordering, as I can’t imagine anything worse that melted candied plums.
Sure, Gummy bears are all the rage, but what about gifting the next level up to your candy lover? Introducing traditional gummy bears from Germany but each one is filled with a delicious bit of fruit juice. It’s like a full course meal of candy in one tasty little bite. I would warn you that once you try them, going back to standard non-juice filled gummy bears is not going to be quite so easy. Once you gift them to your candy lover, they may want to put these on subscription and keep them coming so they are never without.
I am a huge coffee fan. I may even like coffee more than I like candy. Okay, maybe not. Sometimes it is possible to get the best of both worlds, and that is exactly what will happen with these coffee flavored candies from Thailand. What’s not to love about Java coffee, creamy milk, and a hint of vanilla mixed into perfect goodness? You candy (and coffee) lover won’t be able to eat just one, but fear not, the price makes these sweet treats very affordable. Buy one bag. Buy ten. They won’t go to waste.
