Weird Candy Combinations: The Strangest Stuff You've Ever Tasted!
Do you like trying new things? Do you like candy? If so, you're going to love this blog post! In it, we'll be discussing some of the weirdest candy combinations that you've ever tasted.
Some of them will make your taste buds tingle with delight, while others may make you question why anyone would ever think to put those two ingredients together.
But no matter what your opinion is on these combos, one thing is for sure: they're all pretty strange.
Let's get straight to it.
The Ultra Weird & Maybe Wonderful
Why start boring when you can sample some of the strangest candy flavours ever to touch the taste buds of humanity?
These concoctions aren't for the faint-hearted, but if you want to push your boundaries, here are some of the boldest combinations ever.
Yep, they're a thing. Highly popular in Australia and made of fondant, the sticks are anything but conventional.
Honestly, we don't know how Musk Sticks taste, but if the perfume is anything to go by, who knows?
If you're heading to the country soon, it might be worth giving musk sticks a try.
For many people, the idea of wasabi and chocolate doesn't work. Japan is one of those countries that's never afraid to push the boundaries, and its Wasabi KitKat is just one of its signature creations.
While it's not as spicy as the wasabi you get as a sushi accompaniment, the KitKat version certainly packs a punch.
Who says jelly sweets have to be fruity? Not Mexico! These spicy sensations are delicious in many ways, but only a true fan of spicy food will appreciate Salsagheti.
With a dash of chilli powder over each sweet and a sachet of tamarind sauce, you can push your taste buds to the limit - but would you really want to?
Cheese and potato chip chocolate bar
Another slightly weird but perhaps understandable candy bar is the Tayto Milk Chocolate Bar, with the bizarre combination of cheese and potato chips.
It's another highly subjective candy in terms of flavours, but some might appreciate the uniqueness.
So, now we've been through the weirdest confectionery combinations, it's time to look at some slightly less obscure but still pretty weird sweet and chocolate flavours around.
One of the UK's favourite confectionery brands is the infamous Percy Pigs from Marks & Spencer.
You wouldn't think these fruity pigs would have had such a significant impact, but they're now a massive part of British culture.
In fact, they're so popular that there's even a vegetarian version, and Percy now has some new friends, including Globetrotting Percy and fizzy Percy sweets.
The Wonka brand is renowned for crazy combinations, and Laffy Taffy is no exception. If you've ever sampled Taffy, you'll know it has an incredibly unique taste and even weirder texture.
Taffy is a popular treat with a distinctively salty taste and a chewy texture. But, when combined with a fruity flavour, Wonka Laffy is the perfect sweet treat, even if it's not one of those 'run of the mill' flavours.
While many think liquorice is usually sweet, some countries embrace a saltier tasting confectionery.
Also known as salmiak, this sweet is hugely popular in Scandinavia and the Netherlands, but some might find it too intense.
If you're a fan of unique flavours or prefer savoury more than sweet snacks, salt liquorice is ideal.
Lightning Bug Gummies
Gummies are a favourite worldwide, but these are pretty special. Shaped like little bugs, they have a conventional fruity taste that most people will enjoy.
Lightning Bug Gummies could be the perfect way to mix up your usual sweet treat routine because they come with a pair of tweezers and a small light so you can inspect each bug.
Ok, it's not the ideal treat for adults, but kids will love these gummy sweets, and it can potentially slow them down.
Kitten Tongue Chocolate
This one is for all you cat lovers out there. Kitten Tongue Chocolate is a popular European chocolate, and it's exactly what it sounds like - chocolate in the shape of a kitten tongue.
While there are no unique flavours, the shape certainly makes it more interesting. Cat lovers will appreciate these deliciously creamy chocolates.
Jelly Belly Beanboozled
If you're a fan of jelly beans, then you'll love Jelly Belly Beanboozled. These beans come in a range of flavours, some of which are delicious and others which are pretty awful.
From booger-flavoured to earwax-flavoured, these beans are not for the faint-hearted.
But, if you're feeling brave, why not give them a try? They're also a fantastic gift and the perfect game to play with family and friends.
Flavoured Candy Canes
Candy canes are a traditional festive treat and commonly come in peppermint form. However, in recent years, there have been some pretty strange flavour combinations.
From wasabi to pickle, there's a candy cane for everyone - even if the flavours are a little bit unusual.
Why not sample a gravy flavoured candy cane for an authentically British flavour combination? You never know; it might be your new go-to sweet.
Onion Ring Mints
Onion ring mints aren't the perfect way to freshen your breath after eating onions. These little mints have a strong onion flavour, and they taste just like your favourite onion rings - without the calories.
Why people would want to enjoy these 'mints' might not make sense, but we can see their appeal.
The Bottom Line
The best thing about these sweets is they defy all sense of reason and make the perfect gifts for parties.
If you'd like to keep it simple, we recommend going for Wonka Laffy or Percy Pigs, but don't forget to sample some of the crazy combinations too.
For example, Beanboozled makes the perfect party game, while adults can enjoy pushing their boundaries with Salsagheti.
Whatever you choose, you're bound to have a great time!
