What's the weirdest candy you have ever had? Canadian candy counters sell "Floral Gums" They look like Ju-Ju-Bees, and are supposed to taste like flowers. But they taste exactly like SOAP! When you first try one, you're horrified, "Why would you give me THAT?" But 5 minutes later, it's, "Umm, can I have another one?" I have argued with friends for hours about what flowers the different colors are supposed to be. They are great at parties.

One year, for my wife's Christmas stocking, I got her a tin of Lavender Pastilles: little hard candies with the definite fragrance and taste of lavender. (Come to think of it, that was a lavender Christmas; I got her a jar of lavender honey, too....)

I also once got her a little container of caramels made with a hint of Fleur-de-sel hand-harvested French sea salt.....She has, shall we say, a bit of a sodium dependency...

I would think that certain flavors of Jelly Bellies would apply. Some of them are almost disgusting and I will not even name them. Even one of the milder flavors of dirt sort of got me. Perhaps you know the rest of the flavors.

Wine gums are absolutely the world's best non-chocolate candy. Unfortunately, the best ones cannot be bought in the U.S. They come from Marks & Spencer and I have been known to bring home a dozen bags in the bottom of my suitcase. Every time I introduce a friend to them, they are hooked.

When the "Bad Candy" web page used to be up, I tried some of the Mexican 'candy' that was available locally.... shudder.... salted chile watermelon suckers anyone? Tamarind paste? urghhhh.. the best part was reading the hilarous descriptions on that page,,but alas, it's gone to internet heaven.
When I was little I liked that Botan Rice Candy, the fun part was eating the edible rice paper.

Funny you should mention that, I have some "White Rabbit" chinese candy I'm about to open. You can eat the rice paper too, which is so much fun! The candy tastes like powdered milk, but it grows on you.

Sundancer: Popcorn jelly bellies blow my mind! It's like Willy Wonka's roast beef gum or something!

Jennifer: Ugh! That reminds me...those Tequila suckers with worms in them, eeeek!

There's a particularly vile brand of violet gum; it tastes like an old lady's purse smells.

I'm quite fond of tamarind - *anything* I can find that is tamarind-flavored instantly leaps into my grocery cart. On the other hand, I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone would eat the sour candies made with excessive amounts of crystalline phosphoric or citric acids. *blechho*

I just got a bag of "Bamboo Salt Candy" from the Asian Mart in town. They're round and hard and sort of taste like buttered popcorn and eggs.

Speaking of the Tequila worm suckers, the same place in Pismo Beach, CA that makes those makes other "bug" related candies, chocolate covered bugs, bbq flavored ants..etc...here's the website addy: www.hotlix.com.

As far as tamarind flavored stuff, I LOVE the mexican drink Tamarindo, very very refreshing, but as for the candy, I just can't stomach it.

oooh, Bamboo salt candy that tastes like buttered popcorn and eggs? Ok, I think we have a winner! Wow. Of course, now I must go look for it. As for Tamarind, Naan dipped in Tamarind sauce at Indian places is heavenly.

There's a brand of Japanese breath mint called Jintan. They look like little silver BBs and come in a small box. They are so strong, like Altoids on steroids.

And this is probably more a snack than a candy, but has anyone had that Chinese dried and salted plum called Li Hing Mui? I got hooked on it when we lived in Hawaii. They're intensely salty with a hint of sweetness. Just thinking of it has me drooling on my keyboard.

Are you guys avoiding including Chocolate by omission, or deliberate???
Strange only in the name...But high on my list. Gold-wrap GOO-GOO CLUSTERS, the ones that use pecans instead of peanuts. Messy and way over-sweet, but my favorite candy bar. Not Often, Mind You...But when the mood strikes, they are the end of a long day.
We stopped at a STUCKEY'S in Kansas a couple of years back, and I bought a couple of boxes to save for 'special' times (like Tuesday or National Ignorance Awareness Month)...Needless to say the 100+ degree Temp's in the luggage area caused them to melt into the wrappers...but still they served their purpose for 6 months of treats when we got home.
P S The Ice Cream Flavor is good also, but it holds it's shape worse than the candy when stored in 100 degree weather.

If chocolate was omitted, it's only because chocolate doesn't often venture into the "strange" category.. except for that place I mentioned which sells the chocolate covered insects.

The Willy Wonka company sells a really weird choclate bar - the Xploder. It's regular, if not a little sub par, chocolate with flavorless Pop Rocks embedded in it. It's really fun, but make sure the "sell by" date is not overdue - I had an old one out of a vending machine the other day and it warn't pretty.

Have I got weird for you! Vosges Haut Chocolates -- Got a gift one year that included a truffle flavored with wasabi and ginger, and choc with paprika, as well as one with curry powder and coconut! I just cannot figure out what these people were thinking (or on ;o)! Not only did they mess up perfectly good chocolate -- the stuff is expensive. Check out their site [http://www.vosgeschocolate.com/]

On Caribean islands in front of schools there are older ladies selling treats to the kids at recess and lunch. Fresh tamarind paste rolled in coarse sugar were the winners. Most of the other stuff is just way too sweet.

I can't believe no one has mentioned the wierd suckers that are sweet and clear rectangle shaped with a worm or bug inside of them! and I really can't believe that many ppl eat them. I always see them in gift shops. I live in Louisiana... maybe people up north haven't had the shock of seeing these???

So that's how you spell guinep. In the Virgin Islands it's pronounced guh-NIP. They used to climb our guinep tree to pluck the ripe fruit whenever they could get away with it when we lived on St. Thomas.

I think spruce gum is pretty grotesque: chew until it's good and soft, then use it to patch leaks in your canoe.

Yes, chocolate can indeed be strange, in the wrong hands. Though not commercially available -- thank goodness -- the homemade chocolates one of my aunts made could have been sold in munitions shops. How she managed to capture the flavor of camphor and moth balls, with a texture of fingernails scraping a blackboard is beyond me. And I am grateful for that. I later learned that part of her secret was recycling old Easter bunnies. One Christmas I gave her a large block of Belgian chocolate to work from. The next time I saw her, she handed me a box of chocolates. As I put one in my mouth I said, "So, how did you like working with the Belgian chocolate?" To which she replied, "Oh, I'm saving that for a special occasion."

The Space Age brought something called "Astronaut Candy". It was a small white tube with a small rocketplane blocking the nozzle. You snapped off the rocket plane, stuck the nozzle in your mouth, and squeezed red jelly out of the tube. The rocket plane then docked with the opening to form a seal.

I somewhat remember someone giving me a candy that looked and tasted like a sugar cube with a flower design on it in the mid 60's. I think the brand was called Mind Candy. After one, the thought of having another did not occur, in fact very few thoughts at all occurred.

It did make music taste funny, gave my dog the ability to speak incessantly as well as turning him purple for about 12 hours. The product must have been a failure as I have not seen it since. It certainly was a strange candy though.

LOLing at sugar cube strange candy.

The rocket/sputnik gum references remind me of Space Food sticks. UGH. Did anyone eat these? The peanut butter ones were especially repulsive.

And this reminds me of Great Shakes. A 60s CD I want to order from Amazon has several original commercial jingles for this product, with various bands performing. Cool!

I used to work at a casino that had a lot of Asian employees, and they would sometimes give me candies from NYC's Chinatown. These usually had a picture of flowers on the wrapper and tasted literally like...well...flowers.

OMIGOSH. I had completely forgotten those ever existed. With that strange, bendy, almost rubbery texture. . .

I was crazy for anything space-related at the time. Which explains why I ate Space Food Sticks for so long.

Space Food Sticks have been available, on and off, for the past 4 years or so.
They used to be available at spacefoodsticks.com ... now I see they are going to be marketed through http://www.funkyfoodshop.com/

My favorite all time candy is Li Hing Mui. Most people here in Minnesota does not know what it is because it's like a candy unique to Hawaii. When I moved here I could not find it anywhere at all, like I said most people didn't even know what I was talking about. Now I buy it online at snackshawaii.com. Their the cheapest site I found with cheap shipping. You'll either love it or hate it cause it is a aquired taste, but being raised in Hawaii I love this stuff. I'm trying to find Li Hing Mui margaritas too, but can't find it anywhere, but I know they make it cause they serve it in Hawaii clubs.

The absolutely most bizarre candy I ever encountered was the Star Wars Jar-Jar Bink pushup pop.
It looked like head of that repulsive character mounted on a handle.
When you pressed on the trigger in the handle Jar'Jar's head flipped open to expose a huge, erect candy tongue.
You had to French Kiss Jar-Jar to eat the candy.....

Ok, here's one, just got it out of our vending machine: Reese's Elvis Commemorative Peanut Butter & Banana Creme cups.

It tastes sort of like a banana Moon-Pie collided with the chocolate and peanut butter. Not bad, just odd.

I'm gonna have to say that I agree with the people that said Jelly Belly Jelly Beans...the buttered popcorn flavor has got to be one of the worst things ever! It makes me want to ralph just thinking about them!

Other odd candies:

These Japanese hard candies that I think are supposed to taste like Grapefruit..but whenever I have them with other people, we all taste something different...they sell them at Mohegan Sun in the gift shop.

The buttered popcorn is better than the vomit flavored or earswax flavored bertie bots from Jelly Belly.

Besides mix the rootbeer flavor and the buttered popcorn flavor and it is almost like caramel corn.

One confection that I absolutely can not eat would have to be chocolate truffles ... and I've never had one that was edible to me.

There seems to be a coating or ingredient used in their preperation that tastes like soap to me. I have never encountered this flavor in any other chocolate in a chocolate assortment or other candy ... not in the cremes or the nugats or any other ... too bizarre.

I actually have to spit out the piece if I bite into one and wash my mouth out ... it's that bad.

The only other place that I've noticed that horrible flavor is in the glaze on fruit tarts (that would be the little tart shells that have fruit in them that has a shiney glaze ... and also in some petit-fours, though not (I don't think) the ones covered with regular cake frosting or fondant.

I don't know if this could be "confectioners glaze" because there is all kinds of chocolates that seem to have a shiney sort-of glaze that are fine.

If anyone knows what this mystery ingredient could be I'd sure be interested to know.

Couple years ago at halloween we gave out gummy facial parts (ears, noses etc) and eyeballs. It was a *huge* hit with the kids ... actually had kids showing up and saying "are you the house giving out the eyeballs?". I guess good news travels fast?
