3. Kasugai lychee Hard Candy (3-pack); $11


This lychee-flavored hard candy from Japan is a perennial favorite.

4. Aamira Tamarind Candy; $6

5. Haribo Saure Gurken; $22


You might be familiar with the standard Haribo gummy bears, but you won't find this Saure Gurken (or "sour pickle") variety from Germany at your local convenience store. While they don't actually taste like briny pickles, they do have Haribo's trademark sour-sweet gummy flavor.

6. Beacon Fizzer Lemon & Orange; $18


Beacon Fizzers are a fruity and fizzy chew from South Africa. These are best described as a taffy that "fizzes" (sort of like Pop Rocks) as you chew on it. The texture becomes softer and easier to chew as it gets warmer and begins to lose its fizzy effect.

For many, White Rabbit candy is the taste of childhood. One of the most popular and well-known Chinese treats, this taffy-like candy has a milky, vanilla flavor. The candies are individually wrapped twice, once externally with a regular wrapper and again with a thin rice paper that is actually meant to be eaten with the candy.

Crafted by Cruzilles, a company from the Auvergne region of France, these fruit jellies come in a recognizable metal pail that's decorated with lush illustrations.

12. Fazer Salmiakki; $12


If you're looking for an intense, salty licorice flavor, this Finnish delicacy might be for you. The salty flavor in salmiakki is unique in that it uses ammonium chloride, which according to The New York Times is “an astringent, extremely bitter chemical compound formed, like all salts, by mixing a base and an acid, which in the case of salmiac are ammonia and either hydrochloric acid or hydrogen chloride.”
