American sweets and candy

What does America taste like? The best way to find out is to try out the most popular treats from the USA! We're sure you haven't tried many of our top American chocolate, fruit gum, and snack favorites!

Chocolate from the USA

Did you know that chocolate from the USA tastes completely different from European products? Experts have been arguing about the origin of the very special chocolate flavor for many years. Want to try it sometime? Here are our favorite chocolate brands from the USA:


Whether in peanut butter cups, bars, or mini chocolates - the typical chocolate-peanut butter combination in Reese's candy is hard to resist.


HERSHEY'S creamy milk chocolate has been a fabled classic in the USA for decades! However, the tangy flavor of HERSHEY'S recipe is a perfectly guarded secret. Whether it's "Cookies'n'Creme," "Strawberry," "Mint," "Cookie Bites," or "Sprinkles'n'Creme," - we just love this burst of flavors!


Everything that makes a peanut fan's heart beat faster is available in the Treets assortment. There's peanut butter or whole peanuts in crisp milk chocolate, large and small chocolate cups, caramel bites, or even the tiny Treets Buttins to nibble on during snack time.

Curly Wurly

The trendy chocolate called Curly Wurly actually comes from Great Britain, but it's a real success in the USA! The delicious stick is a long, flat caramel bar covered in milk chocolate. Curly Wurly is delicious, incredibly crunchy, and almost more importantly, it's a true style icon!

Candies, fruit gums, and chewy sweets from the USA

The spectacular range of American chewy candies, fruit gums, and chewing gums is colorful, screechingly sweet (or terrifyingly sour), and full of surprises! Here are our squeaky-crazy favorites:

Jelly Beans

The bean-shaped "Jelly Beans" flavor bombs are famous for their deceptively realistic taste combos and gained world fame, not least thanks to Harry Potter. Enjoy flavors like "Butter Popcorn," "Pina Colada," "Mint Chocolate," "Island Punch," "Birthday Cake," or "Cherry Cola"! If you combine them cleverly, you can even create authentic new specialties.

Center Shock

Center Shock's filled chewing gums are not for the faint of heart! Different flavors like blood orange, watermelon, or sour apple will attack you EXTRA SOUR and put your whole body in excitement!


The pebble-shaped and crunchy Nerds come in all rainbow colors and range from lovely sweet to extremely sour! They come in flavors such as “Sour-Lightning Lemon,“ “Amped Apple,“ “Wildberry and Peach,“ and “Mango Chile and Guava.“ The packaging design of the Nerds is also unique: each box has two flavors and spouts on both sides so that the flavors don't mix.


The unicorn among American candies is just bursting with flavor! The crunchy little chewy Skittles candy tastes like tropical fruit, wild berries, licorice, or desserts like ice cream, cupcakes, or milkshakes!

Candy Corn

If you've ever celebrated Halloween, you must know Candy Corn! The little sugar pyramids are tri-colored and taste like honey, butter, and vanilla. Even if their taste is rather unspectacular in contrast to Skittles & Co., the sweet corn-shaped chewy candies are a true highlight every year in fall!

Sour Patch

The legendary Sour Patch fruit gums are sprinkled with sour sugar, which results in a funny sweet and sour flavor explosion when chewed. Each piece contains two fruity-sweet flavors such as "Watermelon," "Strawberry," "Tropical," "Berries," "Peach," "Blue Raspberry," or "Cola."

Jolly Rancher

The colorful Jolly Rancher treats are available as hard candy (e.g., as a lollipop on a stick) and soft, chewy treats. Modern flavors such as "Blue Raspberry," "Cinnamon," and "Smoothie" are complemented by experimental combinations such as "Watermelon & Cayenne Pepper" or "Cherry & Habanero." A true adventure for all candy fans!

Laffy Taffy

Delicious, soft, and fun - That’s what Laffy Taffy chewy candies are all about. In addition to the almost addictive velvety chewing experience in flavors like Banana, Strawberry, Melon, Grape, and Green Apple, Laffy Taffy wrappers also feature cool jokes! Want to hear some?

"Why don't lobsters share? - Because they are shellfish."
"What kind of tea is sometimes hard to swallow? - Reality."
"What's an owl's favorite subject? - Owlgebra."

Uh-huh. Alright, so Laffy Taffy is better at making chewy candies than writing jokes.


The unmistakable Twizzlers sticks are often referred to as "red licorice" but contain no licorice at all. The gummy treats, with or without filling, come in flavors like Citrus Punch, Green Apple, Cherry Kick, Strawberry, and Raspberry and are available in typical Twizzlers shapes, including Twists, Nibs, Bites, Pull'n'Peel, Twerpz, and Strawz.

Pop Rocks
