Sour Patch Kids, a mouth-tingling treat
As soon as Sour Patch Kids became available, it was clear that these American sweets were a hit. In 1995, they made their appearance in many a movie theatre in Columbia, Maryland. These sweets have a soft texture and a sour surface, a combination that enchants both young and old. Are you looking for American sweets that will wow you? Then you should definitely try the Sour Patch Kids!
The surprising flavours of Twizzlers
When Twizzlers were first marketed, they were liquorice flavoured. This was the beginning of a trend. In order to appeal to a larger crowd however, some additional flavours were launched soon after: strawberry, grape, chocolate, cherry and watermelon.
They also come in limited editions every now and then, like the Limited Edition Cherry Cola. Twizzlers get their name from having a completely twisted surface, providing them with a unique texture and flavour experience. Twizzlers are a classic sweet in the US that you certainly should try sometime!
Life Savers, is pepermunt ook snoep?
Many of us enjoy the freshness of a peppermint. One could argue that peppermints aren’t really sweets, but the fact remains that they are delicious. A popular mint in the US is Life Savers. Aside from regular peppermints though, the brand also offers hard sweets with a wonderful range of fruity flavours. Are you not a big fan of hard sweets, and do you prefer soft gummies?
