Arguably one of the best parts of traveling is getting to try new and exciting snacks. Plane tickets are expensive, so it might not be worth flying to another country just to eat some candy—but luckily, there are other options. Thanks to the internet, you can take a candy tour of the world without even leaving your couch.

1. KOROVKA // RUSSIA


Hard to find in the U.S., Korovka, which means “little cow” in Russian, are rectangular prisms made of some form of dairy (either milk or condensed milk), sugar, and butter. With a creamy filling and unique texture, Korovka tastes like caramel, but with a Russian twist!

2. BARRATT SHRIMPS AND BANANAS // UNITED KINGDOM


If you’re traveling in the U.K. this summer, be sure to pick up a bag of this popular foam sweet (a type of candy kind of like a marshmallow). In classic British fashion, Barratt Shrimps and Bananas are not what they seem. The “shrimps” in question actually taste like raspberry, and the berry-banana combination is mouth-wateringly delicious.

3. ALVBRO POLLITO ASADO // MEXICO


A lollipop molded in the shape of a roasted chicken? What more do you need? This popular Mexican candy is the perfect blend of spicy, sweet, and sour, with a hint of chili powder. Using flavors popular in Mexico, these chicken lollipops also come in exotic flavors like tamarind. The only problem with Alvbro Pollito Asado is that they don’t come in a bigger bag.

4. KATZENZUNGEN // GERMANY


Meaning “cat tongues” in German, these popular chocolate treats have been around for decades. Known for their distinctive boxes featuring an array of cute kitties, Katzenzungen are supposed to be shaped like cat tongues, but in reality they look more like tongue depressors. In any case, Katzenzungen originally came in only one flavor—milk chocolate—but now, the rich candy comes in original milk, dark chocolate, and a marbled version of white and milk chocolate.

5. SOUR EARS // AUSTRALIA

If you’re cruising through Sydney, Melbourne, or the deep Outback this summer, pick up a tub of sour ears. This popular Australian novelty candy looks just like an ear, but it tastes like a sweet and sour gummy. Not only are sour ears delicious, but they’re also good for pranks!

6. THRILLS CHEWING GUM // CANADA


Thrills is a legendary Canadian candy gum, notorious for its soapy taste. On every pack of Thrills, you’ll find the slogan “It still tastes like soap!” (just in case you were worried about that). Sure, it sounds gross, but people swear by this northern delight. You’ll just have to try it to understand.

7. DRAGON BEARD CANDY // HONG KONG

8. TYRKISK PEBER // FINLAND


Popular across Scandinavia, but most popular in Finland, Tyrkisk Peber is a salty licorice hard candy. The flavor combo of licorice and anise oil starts off tame but rapidly heats up as little holes in the candy widen, revealing the strong licorice powder in the center. Sort of like a Scandinavian Warhead, Tyrkisk Peber can burn your mouth—but in a good way!

9. TING TING JAHE // INDONESIA


A traditional Indonesian candy, Ting Ting Jahe has been enjoyed for hundreds of years. Made with ginger and tapioca starch, this treat has a chewy consistency and slightly sticky texture. It’s double-wrapped, but don’t worry, that doesn’t mean more garbage—the second layer is edible rice paper!

10. TAMARIND CANDY // THAILAND


Immensely popular throughout Southeast Asia, the traditional version of this Thai candy consists of tamarind fruit coated with salt, sugar, and crushed chiles. But this version turns it into a hard candy made of sugar, glucose, and artificial flavoring.
