There are plenty of crazy candies out there for those who are looking for something a little different this Halloween. These Trick or Treats however, are truly abnormal candy flavors, great for alternative gift ideas, and maybe a good prank as well. Just make sure that you don’t take a bite out of one by mistake.
Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans
The Jelly Belly Candy Company, USA came up with these magical Harry Potter inspired flavors. Each Bertie Bott’s 4.25 oz box holds 10 weird flavors such as vomit, earwax, earthworms, boogers and dirt, among others. The names certainly sound gross and according to people who have tasted it, each candy tastes like what it’s supposed to be.
Ammonium Chloride Candy
Ammonium chloride is naturally produced in volcanoes and it is normally used in making dry batteries. However, in Finland ammonium chloride is the main ingredient in “salamiakki”, a Finnish candy. Sometimes, the Finnish also dissolve this candy into their vodka drinks.
Mutton Caramel Candy
A Japanese food manufacturer in Hokkaido came up with the idea of producing the Genghis Khan Caramel, made of mutton extract. It is said that this candy tastes like normal caramel at first and then has a strange taste of BBQ mutton with garlic thereafter.
Vosges Exotic Candy Bars
Vosges is an American chocolatier that has ventured into specialty chocolate with a twist of exotic spices. Vosges original exotic lineup includes “Naga”, which is milk chocolate with Indian curry, coconut and “Red Fire”, which is a mixture of dark chocolate with Mexican chipotle chili peppers and Ceylonese cinnamon.
Tasty Tuna Tidbit
The Jane-Jane Tasty Tuna Tidbit is a Japanese fish candy made of tuna fish, soy sauce and sugar. It tastes and smells fishy.
Uncle Oinker’s Savory Bacon Mints
This mint is definitely not your ordinary breath refresher. Each mint tastes like salty, crispy bacon with a hint of mint. Each regular tin contains 100 pieces of mint.
Sunny Foods Mallow Pizza
Sunny Products Development Ltd, USA came up with this marshmallow pizza complete with the all-time favourite marshmallow pizza toppings.What else?
Bacon Chocolate Bar
A Chicago based chocolatier, Coco Rougue, created this bacon chocolate bar. It is actually made up of dark chocolate with pieces of crispy salty bacon evenly distributed inside the chocolate bar. The contrast tastes between the bittersweet chocolate and the salty bacon definitely makes this chocolate bar a unique product.
Mitarashi Dango Gummy
A Japanese company was inspired by the famous Japanese festive snacks called the Mitarashi Dango, and he created these gummies. Mitarashi Dango is a glutonious rice snack, shaped into a ball, covered with a generous amount of sweet soy sauce. Whereas, the gummies are also shaped into small balls with a soft texture and salty soy sauce in the mid section.
This Japanese wasabi chocolate is made of white chocolate with horseradish. It tastes rather strange with the sweetness of the chocolate followed by the spicy horseradish aftertaste.
