The Ultimate Ranking of the Best Latin American Candy Ever

From chocolate bars with peanuts to fun liquid tamarindo candy that comes out of a squeezable tube to classic Brazilian cashew bonbons, Latin American candy is anything but boring. Because nothing is too weird to put into candy form, the options can sometimes be overwhelming. We took one for the team and ranked the best of the best out there — hey, someone had to do it!


Sublime Chocolate

Sublime Chocolate bars have been around for over 80 years. Made with sweet milk chocolate and Peruvian peanuts, they are a fan favorite in Peru.


Ricolino Kranky

Don't chocolate-covered cornflakes, aka Mexican Ricolino Kranky, sound like the ultimate midnight snack?


Chocolates Jet

Colombian Chocolates Jet are classic milk chocolate bars you know you won't turn down.


De la Rosa Mazapán

De la Rosa Mazapán, chewy peanut candies, are a year-round staple in Mexico.



Frunas fruit chews, which hail from Colombia, are similar to Starbursts with a more taffy-like texture.


Las Sevillanas Obleas

Las Sevillanas Obleas, a cousin of Glorias, are light wafer sandwiches filled with cajeta, a goat's milk caramel similar to dulce de leche. Mouthwatering!


Flautirriko Tarugos Tamarindo

If you've got a thing for spicy candy, you'll love Flautirriko Tarugos Tamarindo, Mexican tamarind candy sticks.


Paleta Payaso

A Paleta Payaso, a chocolate-covered marshmallow lollipop with gummies, will make everyone from the kids to the grown-ups smile.


Pelon Pelo Rico

If you ever had a thing for liquid candy, tamarind-flavored Pelon Pelo Rico will be your new favorite. This one-of-a-kind sweet is also a little salty and a little spicy all at the same time.


Skwinkles Salsagheti

Pasta-shaped Mexican Skwinkles Salsagheti will bring out the child in you. There's no way you'll regret going for this watermelon-flavored candy reminiscent of Sour Punch Straws.


Tin Larin

Make sure you grab plenty, because everyone will be going for the Tin Larins, Mexican cookies filled with peanut butter and chocolate, in your candy bowl.



Barrilete, a Colombian gummy candy, will unite all taffy-lovers this Halloween.


Garoto Serenata De Amor

Garoto Serenata De Amor might be a fancier candy offering, but anyone would be thrilled to score one of these Brazilian cashew bonbons any time of year.


Bon Bon Bum

Bon Bon Bum bubblegum-filled lollipops, are like Blow Pops but better. They come in exotic flavors like maracuya (passion fruit) and mango. Yes, please!
