Is there anything better than sitting down to eat your favorite candy? Yes, there actually is. Discovering that your favorite candy has a new flavor coming out. While many of us do have our favorite candies and ‘go-to’ flavors, the companies are constantly trying to find new ways and flavor combinations to entice us into spending more money on candy. Which we happily do. With that in mind, get ready to get excited as we look at 10 New Candy Flavors Coming Out In 2020 That You Need To Try! Warning: You will get a sugar craving after this.
10. Coca-Cola Tic-Tacs
There have been rumors for a while that the small minty treat and everyone’s favorite soda company are coming together to create an all-new Tic-Tac flavor, and those rumors are true. Over the years Tic-Tac has brought us many new and daring flavors; such as orange, lime, and even strawberry, all of which have found a place on the candy shelf and dare we say, a place in our hearts. Long gone are the days when we were all satisfied with a simple mint flavor treat, the need for new and exciting flavor combinations threatens to reach new heights. With this latest offering, the Coca-Cola flavored Tic-Tac is supposed to contain the refreshing taste of Cola in the iconic Tic-Tac shape. The iconic Coco-Cola logo will be wrapped around the Tic-Tac box, which already looks trendsetting. We will have no doubts that this will be a winner for both companies as both iconic brands usually do well. We are, however, a bit apprehensive when it comes to Coca-Cola putting their flavors into strange products and they venture outside of the soft drinks market. We are not completely sure if Coca-Cola flavored Tic-Tacs will work but we can’t wait to give them a taste and hopefully be proved wrong. These little gems will hit the shelves in early 2020.
9. Milky Way – Salted Caramel
There is one flavor that a lot of candy, and in fact other companies, are adding to their products at the moment and that flavor is Salted Caramel. The idea of salted caramel and chocolate is not a new one. It was in fact way back in the 1970s when a French chocolatier first started to use salted butter in his chocolate. The reason was that he wanted to infuse the sweet and sour flavors in chocolate and to have a bar of chocolate that no one else had. The taste soon caught on and now people everywhere go crazy for anything with salted caramel in. Considering that Milky Way already has caramel running through its chocolate bar, we’re surprised that they didn’t come up with this combination sooner. Whatever the reason for the Mars Corporation to delay this dreamy chocolate combination, we are glad that they have finally got on board the salted caramel train and we can’t wait for the Milky Way Salted Caramel. This chocolate bar looks set to hit the stores in January 2020. Although, some lucky shoppers will be able to see it in their local Walmart before anyone else as they are rolling it out before it goes on general sale.
8. Starburst – Swirlers
We all have a favorite flavor of this chewie treat. Whether you like the old school flavors such as strawberry, orange, and lime, Or you like the new school tropical flavors such as Pino Colada, cherry kiwi, and mango melon. Whichever Starburst flavor you like the best, you can be assured that the busy beavers in the factory are coming up with a new and exciting flavor for us to try. That’s exactly what they’ve done. Kind of. Rather than coming up with brand new flavors, Starburst has decided to put two great flavors together. Which is even better in our books. Starburst Swirlers is a slightly different take on the tradition chewy candies. They are actually long chewy straws with two flavors wrapped around each other. The flavor combinations that will be coming are; strawberry – cherry, cherry – lemon and orange – strawberry. Essentially they look like Twizzlers but taste like Starburst. Could candy get any better than this? We don’t think so. As well as the new Swirlers, Starburst is releasing new flavors and varieties of its already popular Starburst Gum range. 2020 could be a very good year to be a Starburst fan.
7. Skittles Dips
There are a lot of exciting flavors of candy that are coming out in 2020, but none have had as much anticipation as Skittles Dip. The famous rainbow candy has been promising this new product for months with regular sneaky pictures posted on social media, all of which are designed to make us candy lovers go into a frenzy. Which it has!While many of us can’t wait for this new candy, it was noted that not everyone was excited to see candy and yogurt put together. On Today show, guests were asked their opinions and although they liked both candy and yogurt, they were not keen on the idea of putting them together. We think they are in the minority as most people are looking forward to this new candy. Skittles have even released the long-awaited Dips into the UK stores a few months earlier than the planned US launch. While that may just make us want this candy, even more, the long wait will soon be over as Skittles Dips will be hitting the shelves in early 2020. Phew! So far the details of the US version of these candies have been few and far between. All we really know is that this candy will be our favorite Skittles dipped in a creamy yogurt coating. Reports from across the pond are saying that these yogurt covered skittles will be in lemon, lime, strawberry, orange, and blackcurrant flavor.
6. M&M’s – Fudge Brownie
There may have been several varieties of M&M’s over the years, after all, we were never going to be satisfied with just plain chocolate, were we? Each time a new flavor form M&Ms hits the shelves we all get excited. The chocolate that ‘melts in your mouth and not in your hands,’ has become the master at releasing new flavors to its range. Using social media to its full advantage by giving us little snippets of information to tease us, the Mars Corporation knows how to whip us all into a frenzy. Often using the public to vote for new flavors and colors, M&Ms has become the true leaders in using all the advertising tools to increase their brand and popularity. Recently M&Ms did it again and released limited-edition flavors such as English Toffee and Nutella Hazelnut spread, all to the joy of the candy-loving public. With each new flavor that is released, many of which became firm favorites, M&Ms become bigger and better. Now M&M are potentially bringing us their best flavor yet with the release of Fudge Brownie as a permanent flavor. The new M&Ms are said to be slightly larger than the normal M&Ms and have a fudgy center at the core that has the consistency of a brownie and all that fudgy goodness is wrapped in M&Ms famous milk chocolate. These eagerly awaited candies are due out in early 2020 and we can’t wait.
5. Twix – Cookies & Creme
While going through our list of new and exciting candy flavors that are coming out in 2020, we all have to ask ourselves what makes the perfect candy bar? Whatever your favorite type of candy is, in our minds, you can’t go wrong with a crunchy cookie base, a caramel center all wrapped in delicious milk chocolate. Chocolate just can’t get any better than that, right? Well, the makers of Twix think they can. The classic chocolate sticks may have disappeared off our candy selves over the last few years but Twix is coming back bigger than ever and they are bringing a new flavor with them by adding Cookies and Creme to their beloved bars. We know what you are thinking, ‘Why change Twix? It was such a classic.’ That may be true but rather than just bringing back the same bar, which would probably work as 90’s nostalgia is huge right now! Twix have decided to bring us a completely new flavor to push their brand into the 21st century. Replacing the caramel with a layer of cookies and creme icing could really be something special and a great addition to this beloved chocolate brand.
4. Kit-Kat – Dark Chocolate & Mint
‘Have a break, have a Kit-Kat.’ We all remember those commercials for this candy. The perfect advertising campaign in which we were encouraged to take a moment for our busy lives to sit, and snap, on a classic wafer covered Kit-Kat. Not only that but they taught us to share our candy with our friends. While Kit-Kat has remained one of the big candy brands in the world, they are not very giving when it comes to releasing flavors, unless you live in Japan that is as they have an estimated 200 more flavors of Kit-Kat than the U.S. While they do release the odd new flavor in the U.S, Peanut Butter was a particular flavor of ours, new Kit-Kat flavors are thin on the ground. Now Kit-Kat is hitting us with a brand new flavor and we couldn’t be happier. A dark chocolate Kit-Kat with a mint creme on top, the Kit-Kat mint, and dark chocolate duo could change this chocolate forever. After all, mint and chocolate go together like peanut butter and jelly, maple syrup and pancakes, Rock and Roll, Siegfried and Roy. Once you’ve seen them both together, you can never imagine them apart again.
3. Snickers – Pecan
Every now and then a candy bar releases a flavor that not only takes people by surprise but takes the world by storm. The Snickers Pecan was one such candy bar. Only being sold online, the Mars Corporation released this new flavor of Snickers in mid-2019 on a custom website. Within hours of the site going live, Mars released a statement saying that all snickers bars were sold out. Social media went crazy as people were desperate to get their hands on this new chocolate bar. The Snickers Pecan was selling at $30 for a box 15 before they ran out, that’s about $2 a bar and we wonder if any of those elusive bars appeared on sites like eBay. If they did, we’re sure they went for a lot more than $2 each. The thing that seemed to make this bar so special was the Texas-based pecans. While the rest of the Snickers bar is the same; a soft nougat center covered with caramel and wrapped in milk chocolate. The only difference is that the regular peanuts were replaced with the Texas pecans. Mars has not released an official date for the re-release of this much sought after candy bar, however, they have been leaving snippets and clues on their social media pages suggesting that the Snickers Pecan will be making its way back into our lives in 2020. This entry may only be whispers and pipedreams but we all have our fingers crossed that Mars listens to the people and adds this flavor to its permanent range of Snickers.
What better way to express your affection for someone than by giving them candy. Is there anything more romantic than showering that special someone with their favorite sweet treats? How about if that candy had a love message on it? That’s perfect. For generations, these little heart-shaped candies have been bringing joy to everyone, and not just on Valentine’s day, although they do go together perfectly. With little messages on each candy such as ‘Be Mine,’ Love Bug,’ ‘Kiss me’ and ‘ Call Me.’ Sweethearts may not have been great love poetry but they were fun, silly and spread a smile to all who received them. Whether you wanted to subtly show someone how you felt, or you just wanted to make someone smile, Sweethearts were a great way to do this. However, The New England Confectionary Company that owned Sweethearts went out of business and stopped making these candy treats. Valentine’s days haven’t seemed the same without them. But don’t be too disheartened as help is on the way and Sweethearts have been saved. The Spangler Candy Company has come to the rescue and saved NECCO and our beloved Sweethearts. We’ve been assured that Sweethearts will be back in stores for Valentine’s Day 2020 which is now the main reason many people will be looking forward to this holiday. While Jelly Bean’s Conversation beans and Cupid Messages by M&Ms have filled the heart shape gap in the market, there is nothing quite like receiving or giving, a Sweetheart candy.
1. Sour Punch Bites – Spicy Bites Flavors
A lot of entries on our list of new candy bars that are coming and you have to try have been chocolate-based. That’s mainly because chocolate is still seen as a luxury item in many places as well as many of them being aimed solely at adults. Next, however, we come to a candy that brings children and adults together for a mouthful of joyous sugar treats. Sour Patch candies were one of the first candies to tackle the ‘sour’ market and it very quickly established itself as one of the leaders in sour gummy candies. Over the years Sour patch has brought out a few flavors to add to their brand all of which are available in their different styles of candies such as Straws, Bites, Bits, Rope, and Twists. The popular Bites range is getting some new candies from Sour Punch and we are sure that these candies will become a lot of people’s new obsession. We had the Sour Punch Wild bites and now’s it’s time to get a little spicey with their new Spicy Bites. These new candies are a combination of favorite fruity flavors with a sour and spicy inspired infusion. Also on the Sour Punch’s radar is a line of candies inspired by soda this flavor offers a sour twist in our favorite soda drinks. Some of the flavors of both the Soda range and Spicey Bites are currently available in stores, however, this sour candy is planning to add more flavors to these new ranges in the coming months and all of our mouths are watering at the thought.
