I grew up eating bags of these White Rabbit candies with my best friend. They have a texture similar to a Tootsie Roll, but the true fun is that each candy is wrapped in a flavorless rice paper that keeps your fingers from becoming sticky but dissolves instantly in your mouth. They taste like sweet milk, and you can't stop with one.

I will never forget discovering these cute Happy Hippos in Germany. The crispy wafer crisps are filled with hazelnut cream. This cookie/candy combo makes for one satisfying snack.

Kasugai, a Japanese gummy candy, has delightfully translated descriptions of its flavors. This particular flavor is based on the popular Japanese soda Ramune.

This product of Greece features one of my absolute favorite Mediterranean sweets: halva. The crunchy, chewy candy is made from tahini (sesame seed butter) and tastes similar to a Butterfinger mixed with marshmallow.

Oreo and Milka released a candy bar here in the States, but I'm a huge fan of the German-made Milka bars. This Lu Biscuit Chocolate Bar is "a blend of Milka's signature alpine milk chocolate and the crispy French Lu biscuit." You know it's bound to be good.

These Japanese Hello Kitty Marshmallows, filled with matcha-flavored jelly, may be one of my favorite candies on the planet. The addictive puffs aren't too sweet, and they come in other fruit flavors like grape and strawberry too.

In Amsterdam, licorice is candy king. This Dutch candy translates to "Little Kitten Cat Paws." These adorable candies are made with real licorice root juice, chamomile extract, and other herbs.
