Famous American Sweets You Should Try For Yourself


We all have our favourite sweets from the sweets shop that brings us comfort and nostalgia, but there is also a novel appeal to American treats. This article lists some of the most famous American sweets you may want to try.

Vegan-Friendly Sour Patch Kids

The motto for these vegan-friendly American sweets was “Sour. Sweet. Gone,” referring to their sour-to-sweet taste. If Sour Patch Kids are at the top of your list of favourite American sweets, don’t pass them up; treat yourself to a Sour Patch Kids Bag and taste the original sour and sweet sensation imported from the United States.

Sour Patch Kids Fun Fact: In 2011, a video game based on Sour Patch Kids was released called World Gone Sour.

Fruity Jolly Ranchers

Jolly Rancher, now owned by The Hershey Company, is well-known for its fruity hard sweets, gummies, fruit chews, jelly beans, lollipops, and other confections. If you like hard sweets, you can’t go wrong with Jolly Rancher Original Hard Candwesey. It’s one of our biggest sellers, so why not indulge in these delicious favourites?

Jolly Rancher Fun Fact: Bill and Dorothy Harmsen created the Jolly Rancher Enterprise in Denver, Colorado, in 1948 and picked the name to convey the image of a pleasant Western company.

Chocolate Flavored Tootsie Rolls

The Tootsie Roll, the first penny chews to be individually packaged, has been savoured in America since 1907. The lightly chocolate-flavoured taffy-like treat is in a class of its own, having characteristics comparable to both caramels and taffy but not quite either. 

With the Tootsie Rolls Midgees Bag, you may experience delectable chocolate nibbles coated in crisp, smooth chocolate.

Tootsie Roll Fun Fact: Leo Hirschfield called the sweet Tootsie after his daughter Clara, whose nickname was “Tootsie.”

Iconic M&M’s

M&M’s were invented in 1941 in America and distributed in over 100 countries since 2003. Mars Confectionary’s sweets-coated chocolate M&M’s are now available in various flavours, including peanut butter, almond, pretzel, crunchy, dark chocolate, and caramel. 

One of our favourites is the M&M’s Peanut Butter Theatre Box, which contains creamy peanut butter M&M’s that melt in your mouth rather than your hands.

M&M’s Fun Fact: Did you know that M&M’s were inspired by troops eating British-made Smarties during the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s? He was impressed by the chocolate pellets with a coloured shell that kept the treats from melting.

The Classic Hershey’s Kisses

You may associate Hershey’s with wholesale chocolate bars. However, besides their iconic chocolate bars, they are also known for their Hershey’s Kisses.

Their characteristic conical form and flat bottom have been a famous American confectionery since 1907. The bite-sized solid milk chocolate Hersey’s Kisses are individually wrapped and are ideal for adorning cakes or snacking on.

Hershey’s Kisses Fun Fact: Hershey’s were nicknamed “Kisses” due to the sound and motion generated by the machine when it placed the chocolate onto the conveyor belt.

Tasty Reese’s Pieces

Reese’s is well-known worldwide for its delicious peanut butter-based goods ranging from chocolate bars to genuine peanut butter spread. The Reese’s Pieces peanut butter candy-coated sweets are our personal favourite.
