What sort of American candy are we missing out on in the UK?There are many products from the US which make it overseas. Products form brands such as Coca Cola and McDonalds are available all over the world. Even things like diner chain Hooters are showing signs of becoming a global franchise. However there are some things which seem destined not to go global. There are several types of American candy which are not available in the rest of the world. Some are products from well known brands and some are unheard of outside the US.There is certainly no shortage of choice when it comes to American candy and even though we have many US products over here there are some which are sadly absent.

Don't Forget About Belgian Chocolate

When he got lost looking for a shortcut to India in the late 1400s, Christopher Columbus found the delicious treat known as chocolate in the New World. It is commonly believed that the ancient Aztecs were to have drunk chocolate a long time before anyone else in the world even knew of its existence.

In the Americas it was considered to be a sacred drink that was enjoyed by the Aztecs but only the very elite of their society could afford it.

The treat that got its start in the New World is the same that would become known as Belgian chocolate, which is the original recipe that was kept secret by the Spanish Aristocrats. The nobility couldn't keep the success of the drink from spreading to other European countries however, and it became widespread. The Eu...

The existence of sugar free sweets begs the question of how they could possibly be created, given that the whole thing is supposed to be merely boiled sugar with extra flavours and colouring. Well, the truth is that sugars come in different forms and guises. 'Sugar free' is actually a slight misnomer, as the sugars do still exist in such a sweet - it's just that they come in a different form to the usual refined sugar that is quickly digested and sends your blood sugar levels soaring.Such sugar is replaced in a sugar free sweet by 'isomalt', which is derived from sugar beet. This is treated by the body as dietary fibre, does not have as great an effect on blood sugar levels and has a low number of calories, in addition to being much nicer to your teeth than 'normal' sugar.Advantages of shopping online for sugar free sweetsShopping on the internet is in...
