So I'm going to be visiting a friend in Italy next month. As a gift, I want to bring her a bunch of American candies so she can see what we have here. I'm trying to figure out what American candies are currently sold in Europe so I know what to not buy.

Any advice?

Why wouldn't you just ask your friend about this?

make a list of the stuff you want to get her, and then just wikipedia/google if it is sold in europe
or you can go to the manufacturers italian site, which would tell you the same

i think they're going to be underwhelmed. our chocolate is fucking shit compared to theirs.

at least if you're talking mass produced like in your pic. if you get some niche/specialty stuff they might be interested

Italian here, I'll just give you a list of what comes to mind:

- Snickers
- Bounty
- KitKat
- Mars
- Lion
- M&M's (but I never saw Skittles)

There's probably loads more but I can't remember right now.

I can tell you if I were your friend I'd like you to bring twinkies and poptars, and perhaps a few sodas like cherry soda, grape soda etc. since we don't have those.

Our sodas are basically just lemon, orange, grapefruit, coke and sprite.

Hope that helps at least somewhat.

Do Americans actually believe that all of Europe sells the same kinds of candies, from Spain to Ukraine? This is a new low.

>be Euro in 2016
>buy a pack of 'little niggers' for a dollar
Tables have turned, Ameribro.

Jokes aside, there are chocolaye biscuits called 'little niggers' with said things on the box in E Europe and yes, theyre hilarious.

I'm almost positive that we don't have hershey's, ding dongs, enitre line of stuff from hostess and a lot more. Basically what Italanon listed above is the norm throughout Europe. You'll find American stuff in speciality stores and ofc theres unique stuff for every country, but not very common and Im sure she'll appreciate

They have delicious hard candies in Italy, pretty much have us beat, such as Perugina Sorrento. The chocolate in Europe is like our finer brands of US chocolate at home. So what I would do is find "special edition" things, like Halloween themed stuff out right now like jackolantern reeses, the funkiest Nerds Rope, jelly bellys are american fyi, snappers those pretzel chocolate caramel things, salt taffy is american.

Unique to the US/north america: orange blossom honey, maple syrup (if you can find the candy), cane syrup is delicious on cornbread muffin mix which make a nice pairing, black walnuts, and certain berry jams like boysenberry. Mexican things can be harder to get in Europe, so think about a natural fruit filled aqua fresca drink mix like guanabana Klass, which will be a tropical ahhh. US alcohol, such as southern comfort, titos, and such might be a fun diversion, even if only 1oz sizes for carryon. I'm pretty sure the Pumpkin Spice craze is only American. Going somewhere like Target or Wal-mart will get you all the latest coffee flavors, dipped cookies, hot cocoa mix and crap that is themed.

In France we have these candies called negroes heads; kinda like liquorice candies from what I remember.

Alright thanks man.

I'll buy some Reeses, Skittles, poptarts, and maybe some caramel popcorn or something that's made locally.

A European Snickers bar is not the same as a US Snickers bar.
If you actually want to treat this lady then you'll have to buy imported US candy. This will not be cheap.

If your friend is a snack nerd, you can bring some US 3Musketeers which are equivalent to the EU MilkyWay, but different from the US MilkyWay (which you can bring too) closer to the EU Mars bar.

Maple syrup and peanut butter are less available in Europe, I think mostly for cultural reasons.

Perhaps cinnamon or pumpkin flavoured cakes are somewhat more typical of US.

On the chocolate side, it's true that European snacks are often superior.

Or because maple syrup comes from maple trees which only grow in. Yeah America?

And only America has a twisted fascination with highly processed (f)ucking foul peanut additive in all their foods. I like peanuts, I like peanut butter (aka ground peanuts, no added shot like Americans do). Reece's pieces are a ducking cancer in the name of both peanut and chocolate.

I get comparing candies is a fun idea, but having had candies over 4 continents north american is either on pat or worse. Expect her to be bemused and unimpressed.
