Reasons Why British Lollies Are Better Than American Candy

Assorted colorful lollies

Both Great Britain and the United States have their own definitions of good sweet food. However, we think the British lollies are just that much better. Okay, maybe much better. They are just far superior in taste, texture and quality in contrast to their transatlantic cousin’s candy. American candy tends to be more excessive, with more emphasis on the tasty sweetness of the product. It also tends to have larger portion sizes. On the other hand, British lollies tend to focus more on the texture, careful specific tastes of the product and to a lesser extent, the packaging of the product. It also favours quality over quantity, usually being of smaller portion size, but being made with high quality in mind.

Still not convinced? Here are some reasons why British lollies are better than American candy.

 

Cadburys crème egg

All we need to say is its name. This speciality is not available in the states, and involves a chocolate egg overflowing with creamy goodness on the inside.

Mixing creamy sugar and chocolate together to create a blend similar to that of a chocolate smoothie, what more could you ask for?

 

Haribo mix

British lollies can claim the title of best-mixed candy, something Americans just can’t do. Haribo mix is a party mix of assorted gummies, from the famous coke bottle to the egg and strawberry cream cloud. This fun lucky dip has graced the childhood of every child and is undoubtedly the best. Haribo, in general, produce some of the best sweets known to this planet, if not the best.

Americans just can’t win against this candy giant.

Cadbury Christmas Selection box

You really can’t go wrong with the Cadburys selection box, arguably one of the British lollies greatest. Not just because it’s a box of assorted chocolate bars, but more so the association we have with Christmas and the product. It was a wonder to wake up as a child on Christmas morning to see one or more of these boxes sitting under the tree. Rifling through its covers, you can be sure to pull out one of Cadbury’s many different chocolate bars, all of which are absolutely delicious. Can Americans say the same? We think not.

 

Sherbert

Sherbert is a childhood classic for anyone. There’s nothing better than that sweet and sour powder which kids absolutely crave, and we can’t blame them!

We have yet to see an American counterpart which can match the greatness that is Sherbert. These British lollies come with variety, offering a huge range of Sherbert product with varying flavours and forms. It was not uncommon to see those little straws lying around everywhere in any classroom in school, with kids being ravenous when it came to these British lollies.

Sherbert gets our vote any day.

 

Black Jacks

These British lollies are famed for their ability to turn your tongue black.

The black liquorice flavoured chews are a popular choice amongst kids, and we love their retro packaging vibes. In fact, most British lollies give off that retro vibe, and is part of the reason we love them over their American counterparts.

It just looks old school, and it is more than likely that they are old school and have been in production way before any popular American candy.

British lollies are undoubtedly better than American candy.

The variety, retro vibes, quality and packaging is just that much better than any American candy.

Whilst American candy could surely be the sweetest and excessive, British lollies are of much higher quality and ultimately win the race.
