Weird Candy Around The World (PHOTOS)

British Corner Shop

We're about to tell you something that will not surprise you: Japan makes some of the weirdest candy in the world. Just the other day, we got totally freaked out by some instant Japanese candy. It got us to thinking that there must be comparably weird candies being made all around the world.

In truth, Japan manages to produce most of the weirdest stuff, but places like England, Malaysia and Mexico held their own. We tried to stay away from candy that was gross for the sake of being gross (with one notable exception that we're sure you'll be able to identify). Green candy goo that you eat out a nose-shaped holder is gross, but it's mostly for shock value. Today, we're looking at the kinds of candies that humans actually like to eat, especially if the flavor profile seems exceedingly strange to other cultures (yes, there is a grilled lamb-flavored candy on this list).

What's the weirdest international candy you've ever eaten? Let us know in the comments!
