The Matador guide to candy around the world

It’s a sweet world out there. Take a bite.


It’s human nature to love sweet tastes, and nothing is sweeter than candy. Chocolate, sour gummies, hard candy, soft candy -- you name it, there’s someone somewhere in the world eating it at this very moment.

Matador Network’s motto is to travel fearlessly. While that means exploring places you haven’t seen before, it also means exploring flavors you’ve haven’t tasted. We ignored sound dental advice to bring you stories about the nostalgia of Dutch salty licorice and we spoke to psychologists to figure out why Americans love to argue about candy corn. We laid out the top destinations for chocolate lovers and we interviewed the people keeping the last great American candy stores alive.

It’s a sweet world out there, we’re here to help you learn about it.
