Gummy candy is woefully underrated. Gummies have no fat in them and are lower in calories than your classic cookies or chocolates. With such a wide variety of tastes – chewy or soft, sour or sweet, and an endless array of flavors from strawberry to bubblegum to cola, there is a gummy candy for everyone. In case you haven’t found your favorite yet, or if you just want to explore, here is a list of the world’s best gummy candy.
“Saft Goldbären,” made in Germany, translates to “Juicy Gold Bears,” and boy do they live up to that name. Similar to the classic Haribo Goldbears, these gummy candies take it up a notch by filling the bears with extra “juice” (sugar). But be careful, biting into these delicious treats might ruin all other gummy bears for you.
Percy Pig Gummies
A little bit sweet, a little bit sour, Percy Pig Gummies are made by UK candy company Cadbury. Famous for being light and airy with a delicious fruity flavor, many Europeans claim these Piggies are the best gummy candy in the world. And good news for vegans – their newest recipe doesn’t contain gelatin! Percy Pigs are only available in the UK, but you can get a similar fix with Candy Club’s Pink Piglets.
Strawberry Kiss Yupi
Strawberry Kiss Yupis taste exactly like they’re named – like light little strawberry kisses. Made in Indonesia, Yupis also come in various shapes and flavors like apple rings, cola, and even pizza. However, many insist the Strawberry Kiss is the best gummy candy they have.
If strawberry candies sound right up your alley, Candy Club has a wide variety of strawberry gummies to satisfy your cravings.
Kasugai Peach Gummy Candy
For some reason, peach flavor and gummies go hand in hand. They just do. While many swear that Haribo Peaches are the best peach gummy candy, Kasugai Peach Gummy Candies are a notch even better. Made in Japan and flavored with real white peach juice, these yummy gummies taste impossibly fresh and delicious.
Sour Patch Kids
One of the most popular go-to candies at the movies, Sour Patch Kids are a fun treat for both kids and adults. As their advertising says, “they’re sour, then they’re sweet” and come in classic flavors like lime, lemon, orange, and redberry. More tart than many of their sour competitors, and chewier than your average gummy, these delicious little punks taste like childhood, which is why they’re on almost every list of the best gummy candies.
Black Forest Gummy Worms
What sets Black Forest apart from some of their competitors is that they use real fruit juice in their gummies. Another selling point for Black Forest Gummy Worms, they have an “organic” line. Real fruit juice and organic? Moms can feel good about giving their little ones these guilt-free pleasures.
Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers
Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers are known for their bright neon colors and their fun commercials. They come in wild flavor combinations, like cherry-lime, strawberry-grape, and cherry-lime, and are covered in finger-licking sour sugar.
If you love a good handful of sour creepy-crawlers, try Candy Club’s Bookworms for a nerdy twist on a classic.
Sunkist Fruit Gems
Now, these might make you think of your grandmother, but Sunkist fruit gems are truly some of the best gummy candy. Not too sweet, Sunkists are covered in almost crunchy sugar, which is a nice contrast to the soft gooey inside. They’re also individually wrapped, which can help stop you from eating a whole bag in one sitting (though no one’s judging if you do!).
Swedish Fish are some of the most popular gummy candies of all time. With a harder shell and ooey gooey center, it’s impossible to eat just one. While no one is truly sure what flavor Swedish Fish are, some say the original flavor was lingonberry—a European berry. For more fun facts on Swedish Fish, check our blog.
Candy Club Gummies
