What is your favorite summer candy?
Are you a sour person?
What about hard candy?
Maybe you’re a fan of anything that doesn’t melt when left unattended.
With the summer season right around the corner, we wanted to share with you a list of some of our favorite candy that you may not have considered adding to your “must-try list”. So we dove into our archive and pulled some of the best summer candy we could find for your tasting pleasure.
Here are 10 summer candies you should try this year….
10 Summer Candies For Every Sweet Tooth
Take us back to days on the beach when the biggest worry we had was getting the sand off our feet before going in for dinner. Salt water taffy has been around for decades and has cemented itself as one of the most iconic summer candies you can snack on.
Whether you like chocolate or vanilla, fruity or more savory, there’s a salt water taffy flavor out there for everyone to get their hands on this summer and take their taste buds back in time.
Do you remember those classic lollipops that you’d see every kid walking around with at the summer state fair? Those things were so big you couldn’t even see someone if they were carrying the giant confection in their hands.
These lollipops scream summer!
With their neon coloring and hard candy crunch, they are the perfect sweet treat for a hot summer day because it won’t melt if left in your beach bag and it stays good from sunup to sundown. Not to mention you can pretty much get them in every single size from mini all the way to 6.5 inches.
Nothing says summertime quite like a lemonade stand. There’s just something about sipping on a fresh glass of lemonade that reminds everyone of childhood summers. So why not stuff your face full of sweets that do the same?
You’ve heard of them and we’re here to remind you, that Lemonheads is an elite summer candy. They’re perfect for when you need that fresh lemonade taste, but their kid neighbors are out of town for the weekend and the store-bought stuff just won’t cut it.
Why eat real fruit this summer when you can snack on candy fruit?
If every child in the world could make the choice, I think we all know which one they would pick—and you should probably pick the same!
Boston Mini Fruit Slices are the fruit salad of summer candies: a perfect mixture of cherry, blue raspberry, lemon, lime, and orange that is rounded out by a lovely sugary coating.
If that doesn’t get your taste buds tingling, I don’t know what would!
Everyone knows about the classic Twizzler candy and why it is one of the best licorice confections of all time, but did you know that they make other flavors?
Flavors like orange creme-filled Twizzler.
Yeah, you read that correctly—Orange Creme-Filled Twizzler!
If you’ve ever had an orange cream cooler (a state fair staple) this is like everything you love in that drink with the addition of some sweet orange licorice flavor and texture.
It’s got the usual texture of licorice outside, but inside where you normally find nothing but air, the good folks over at Twizzler decided it would be a good idea to fill it with orange creme.
Let us be the first to tell you it’s amazing.
Nothing screams childhood quite like a Fun Dip.
It’s like an art project, candy, and chaotic mess all combined into one package. The best part: when you get too eager to eat the candy stick leaving you to go the classic finger-licking method that results in a new nail color you never knew existed.
Fun Dips are like the ultimate DIY candy snack, allowing you to dabble in different flavor combinations with each bite. Whether you’re a fruity or sour fan, there’s definitely a fun dip flavor out there that will have your sweet tooth screaming!
Imagine what a watermelon pina colada would taste like.
Pretty good, right?
Now imagine that watermelon pina colada with sugar on the rim and over the entire drink.
That’s what we’ve got going on with these Coconut Watermelon Slices. These things are loaded with juicy watermelon flavor that is cut with a refreshing coconut flavor and topped with a sugar coating that will have your mouth jumping for joy.
They also come in bulk for those summer boat parties out on the lake that require a little extra something to get the sweet vibes going!
Did you know that you can eat those rescue rings that the lifeguards use to save people?
We’re kidding, please do not go up to your local lifeguard and ask for a bite of their rescue ring.
Instead, bless your tongue with the tasty and patriotic flavors of Gummy Freedom Rings. These are basically the classic peach ring gummi candy that we all remember from childhood, except this one is locked and loaded with a new color scheme that screams red, white, and blue.
It wouldn’t be a summer candy list if we forgot to include Cry Baby Extra Sour Bubble Gum.
Bubble gum is a summer candy through and through. I can vividly remember the summer of 7th grade seeing who could chew the biggest Cry Baby gum bubble without it popping or their tongue giving in from the sheer sour taste. Let’s just say I lost.
Nonetheless, every outdoor summer activity is made better with gum so why not make it the sourest gum on the planet? (We don’t know this for fact, but we believe it in our hearts).
Like gum, there’s just something about a lollipop that feels fitting for a summer’s day.
And while we’d all love to carry around one of those giant Whirly Pops we talked about earlier, sometimes you just need a smaller snack you can carry around the amusement park without worrying about it contracting a small flock of flies.
That’s where these Charms Sweet & Sour Pops come in handy! They take all the flavors of summer and combine them into a small sucker you can snack on.
If you’re a fan of tropical flavors that deliver a sour slap, these Sweet & Sour Pops are perfect for you.
