Happy holidays! The end of the year is near so the Bazis team decided to research several holiday staples worldwide. Hopefully, by the end of this article, your mouth is watering!
Sweden – The most popular Christmas sweet in Sweden is the Knack. It consists of butterscotch and toffee.
United States– Candy canes are the most recognized holiday candy in the US. They are striped peppermint sweets that resemble a walking stick.
France – The French traditionally have a bûche de Noël, also known as a chocolate Yule Log. It’s eaten for dessert on Christmas dinner.
Russia – The Russian candy, Ananas (a pineapple flavored candy) is a preferred holiday tret. It includes layers of thin waffles with pineapple-flavored filling and a very distinct yellow wrapper.
Mexico – Mexico is known for its Amaranth candy, made from seeds of amaranth and honey or sugar.
Germany – In Germany, they like to eat Weinbrandt Bohnen, which are chocolate beans filled with Brandy
Denmark – The Danish prefer to eat Marzipan, a confection (made of sugar and almonds) shaped into fruits, vegetables, or animals, or covered with chocolate.
U.K. – Mint humbugs are treats people in Britain share with each other during the holiday season. They are peppermint-flavored black-and-white striped candies. The name is a nod to the phrase “Bah, humbug!” that stems from Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol.
Canada – And last but not least (at least on this list of holiday candies). Canada’s popular holiday candy is called “Chicken Bones.” The unique name is a pink-colored hard candy with a spicy cinnamon flavor.
