The Best Candy of January
Believe it or not, the first month of 2024 is wrapping up, meaning it’s time to break down the top 10 candies of the month! January brought with it a fresh start, and what better way to indulge your taste buds than with a tantalizing selection of candies that made this month a little sweeter?
January was full of tasty adventures for our palates to enjoy, from new international snacks to nostalgic sweets and romantic treats! Join us as we unwrap the top 10 candies that have earned the spotlight in the candy universe!
We're starting the list on a sweet note with Skittles Desserts from across the pond. You’re probably familiar with Skittles, but have you tried these sweet treats flavoured like delectable desserts? Each Skittles candy tastes like beloved desserts, including Cherry Cheesecake, Lemon Pie, Strawberry Ice Cream, Blueberry Tart and Orange Cake. This may be my new fave Skittles variation (besides the original, of course!)
Calling all Pokemon fans! Lutti Pokemon Fizz brings the world of Pokemon to your taste buds with fizzy candies that pack a flavourful punch. The Lutti Pokemon Fizz is an unbelievably tasty gummy candy that is made to resemble the iconic Pokemon characters including Pikachu, Charmander, and Bulbasaur.
Biting down on these fizzy sensations made my senses tizzy with its delightful sugarcoating and fruity flavour. If you’re a fan of Pokemon, you have to give these goodies a try for the new year! You can even get a pack of these as a collectible piece if you have a large Pokemon collection.
We got another banger from the UK!! M&M's Crispy takes the classic M&M's experience up a notch with its satisfying crunch in the center of each piece. This colourful, bite-sized classic chocolate treat is filled with a crispy rice center, providing a delightful texture in every munch.
As a huge fan of M&M’s, I instantly fell in love with these tiny chocolate treats. The crisp crunch at the center is such a nice contrast to the creamy milk chocolate that we’ve all become accustomed to. I’m definitely gonna be snacking on these all of 2024!!!
Get a load of this hunk! It may be the new year, but let’s take a trip down memory lane with the Big Hunk Candy Bar. This retro treat features a chewy, honey-sweetened nougat filled with peanuts. It's a classic confection that stood the test of time and continues to delight candy lovers. If you haven’t tried the Big Hunk candy bar yet, then you’re missing out on an indulgent experience! Make 2024 a sweet treat filled with nougat and peanutty goodness!!
Electrify your senses with Trolli Sour Electric Crawlers. These electrifying gummy worms were a big hit at the Funhouse all of January!! Each gummy crawler is packed with a sour punch that will make your taste buds tingle.
The Mango-Dragonfruit was my personal fave, but if you want to try other electrifyingly sour flavours, you can also enjoy Blueberry-Lemonade and Watermelon-Strawberry flavours. With vibrant colours and intense sourness, these crawlers are a must-try for sour candy lovers!
The 6th entry for our top 10 list is the Sweetarts Mega Rope Twisted Rainbow Punch. For those of you who love a sweet and tangy candy combination, this colourful confection combines the classic Sweetarts taste with a twisted rope format.
The Rainbow Punch flavour offers a burst of fruity goodness that will satisfy your sweet cravings. It’s such an easy treat to have on the go if you’re in a rush and need something to snack on quickly. Make 2024 sweet and tangy with the Sweetarts Mega Rope Twisted Rainbow Punch.
If you’ve been on the hunt for a fruity bubble gum that is loaded with fruity flavours, look no further! This month, we’ve been obsessed with blowing giant bubbles with the Dubble Bubble Seedlings. The excitement of seeing how large you can blow your bubble before it pops was a regular challenge over here. If you want to add sweetness to your day, try the Dubble Bubble Seedlings!
Chupa Chups is a retro candy known for its iconic lollipops, but now they’ve ventured into the bubble gum world with Cotton Bubble Gum! This treat combines the sweetness of cotton candy with the long-lasting bubble gum fun of Chupa Chups.
We clearly loved our bubble gum this month, so we had to add it to the list! If you are an avid chewer like us, the Chupa Chups Cotton Bubble Gum must be next on your “must-try” list!
Switching things up with entry #9, we have the Lays Spicy Crayfish Potato Chips. These chips come straight from China and have an irresistibly savoury flavour that makes the mouth of any foodie drop with pure joy! These potato chips feature spicy crayfish's bold and unique flavour, creating a fusion of sweet, savoury, and spicy notes.
January was just as bold as the flavour of these chips, and if you haven’t already tried them, we suggest you get yourself a fresh bag and indulge in these satisfying chips for the rest of the year!
To wrap up our top 10 list for the month of January, we have the Oreo Cakesters Peanut Butter Creme. Oreo Cakesters Peanut Butter Creme combines the fluffier, cake-like Oreo cookie with a luscious peanut butter creme filling, creating a perfect balance of chocolate and peanut buttery goodness.
I love snacking on these during the weekends when I’m pulling a good ol’ fashioned Netflix binge. But you can also enjoy these anywhere with their small portable packaging and irresistible flavour/texture combo that satisfies any sweet tooth!
