Candy Abroad: 5 Favorite Sweets From Around the World

With Halloween around the corner, we’ve all got candy on the brain. Brooklyn Supper has rounded up our favorite candies, and our least favorite. All this candy talk had me wondering about candies enjoyed around the world, so I was thrilled to see that The Daily Meal had rounded up popular candies from around the globe.

Here are some international candy favorites:


  • England: Cadbury Dairy Milk 1 of 5
    England: Cadbury Dairy Milk
    Cadbury Dairy Milk has been in production since 1905 and is a popular candy in England. According to the Cadbury website, a half pound bar of Dairy Milk chocolate contains a glass and a half of milk.

  • Mexico: Duvalin 2 of 5
    Mexico: Duvalin
    Duvalin Mexican candy is a small tub of frosting with a miniature plastic spoon. The advantage over a real tub of frosting is that it's smaller so you don't eat 12 ounces of frosting and hate yourself. This Mexican candy is mostly enjoyed by children.

    One of the most popular candies in Japan, Hi-Chew can be found occasionally in specialty candy stores or Asian markets in the U.S. It's an individually wrapped fruit candy akin to a Starburst but with some unusual flavors like cheesecake and yogurt, in addition to traditional fruit flavors.

  • Australia: Kookaburra 4 of 5
    Australia: Kookaburra
    Kookaburra Licorice is enormously popular throughout Australia and comes in black, red, and chocolate-covered varieties. Because Kookaburra uses a recipe with more licorice extract than most American companies, it has more of the old-fashioned licorice taste than you might be used to.
