German Candy From Germany
I know, you can get a lot of German candy here in the US… but is it really GERMAN candy? Or is it made here under a German name? Keep in mind, the Germany has different regulations about ingredients… you won’t find things like Corn Syrup in a German Candy. Read the labels! Know what you are eating. And be sure you buy German Candy.
Little Round Tins of Hard Candy
Small sweets in an adorable tin that fits perfectly in your purse or glove compartment.
Woogie, German Fine Drops Sanded Forest Berries Candy Tin 200gr (Waldbeerengeschmack) (3 pcs)
I don’t know anyone in Germany who does not have a tin of these little sweets in their car, or in their purse. They are a lovely little taste of sweet! (and maybe even help with the breath?) Available in lots of flavors, they all have the same size tin.

Moaom Crunch and Chews
Crunchy Kracher, chewy fruit flavors and yummy strips!
Moam Fruit KracherGermanShop24
The Kracher are a chewy candy covered with a hard shell… and a prickly fizzy sensation when you crunch down. Fruit flavor, or everyone’s favorite Cola Kracher. The chews are perfect for keeping in the car or purse as a quick sweet bite when you need a lift.

“Lass prinkeln Baby!”
That PRICKLES! Brause is a funky sort of candy… a bit like pop-rocks, only fizzy instead of poppy. Brause comes in a few different forms. You can get it as a shaped candy (Bonbon), like these mice, chewy and fizzy. Or you can get a candy (Broken) that is hard powder, sort of like a fizzy Sweet Tart. You can even get powder that you can add to drinks (or just eat by dipping a wet finger into the bag). This fizzy stuff comes in flavors like orange, cola or raspberry, and has been a kid’s favorite in Germany since my mom was a kid.

Nimm2 (Take Two)
“Vitamine und Naschen”
A bag of Nimm2 was always in my mom’s glove compartment… and when my kids were little, I kept a bag in my car too. These citrus flavored hard candies have a deliciously gooey soft center. You can even get them now as soft chews! Since they have VITAMINS in them, you might even consider these candies to be GOOD for you. (Just ignore the sugar). I love that they give a kick of sweetness without filling you up, and they don’t melt in a hot car.
Nimm 2 SoftGermanShop24Nimm 2 + Cola!GermanShop24Nimm 2 mit BrauseGermanShop24
This retro candy is a blast of nostalgia. The shells are filled with a delicious candy that you can lick! Didn’t finish it? You could set it aside on the shell. Playing with the sea shells afterwards is fun too…
My mother loves Marshmallows… not the American ones, the German ones… and yes, they are different. They have FLAVOR! Try them, they are delicious (and the Chamallows are great for S’mores)
German mint candies will freshen your breath, and clear your sinuses with a vengence! But I love these things! The smell reminds me of my great uncle, he was a smoker, so he always kept these mints around to freshen up.
Sweet and hard outer shell… soft filling
Hermann the German Raspberry Candy
Himbeer (Raspberry) Bonbons are a delightful hard candy. They have a wonderful raspberry flavor, sweet, not over sweet…. and when you bit in to them they CRUNCH, and a smooth filling comes out. These are the kind of hard candies that your Oma would keep in a bowl for you to nasch, but don’t think they are just for Omas!
These Milky Toffees are not like an American Caramel… they are soft and less chewy, and not nearly so hard on your teeth! And they are oh so sweet! The caramels have a creamy flavor and they are delicious and perfect alongside an apple.. If you love the flavor of caramel, and hate having your dental work destroyed, give these a try.
Malz Bon Bons
I only recently discovered the deliciousness of Malz candies, maybe because they are Bavarian and we didn’t see them in NRW? They are almost caramel in flavor, but it’s deeper. Hard to describe. And not only do they taste good, they are great for a sore throat!
Minty Chocolate Candies covered with a Hard Candy Shell
Although Linsen means lentils, you can think of these as M&M type candies… but better! Instead of tasting like color, they taste of MINT. You always find them in Pink and White (both colors taste the same). My mother kept a jar of these in her cabinet to use as bribes for her grandchildren. (For little ones, just a few go a long way. ) And we big kids love them too.
Yummy Fruit Chews
As much as I adore chocolate, I really like a nice chewy candy, and I always have some in my purse or car. Mamba, which are similar to American Starburst candies, are one of my favorites to keep on hand. It may be interesting to know that Mamba was intentionally developed to be an inexpensive, but value-for-your-money candy. Which is why they were so popular with kids. They come in bars with 4 packages with 6 chews in each… Strawberry, Raspberry, Lemon and Orange. Or you can get bags for your family to share. If you are Vegan, you may be happy to learn that Mamba is made entirely without animal products or bi-products (like gelatin). I like the simple, not to sweet taste.
“Haribo macht Kinder Froh und Erwachsene Eben So” (Haribo makes kids and adults happy!)
Haribo Gold Bears in a Teddy BoxGermanShop24
Happy Kids eat Haribo! Haribo is the first and last word in German Gummy Candy.They come in loads of flavors and hundreds of shapes. But despite the Worms, Cola Bottles, Peach Rings, Wine Gums, Sharks, Mice, Berries and even TEETH, the most famous (and all time favorite) Haribo product has to be the Gummi Bar. Since the 1920s, Haribo (an abbreviation of Hans Riegel Bonn) has made Billions of these yummy bears.Today you can even get them in massive sizes! Be aware though! Not all Haribo Gummi Bears are alike! The bears made in the US contain Corn Syrup… which is not allowed in the German Made products!

A Hard Candy with a Chocolate Filling
Edel Chocolate Fourrée (2 x 125g) – Chocolate hard candies with chocolate filling
I never really knew the name for these candies… Chocolate Fourrée… They were always just those hard candies with the surprising chocolate filling. I only ever had them in Germany, and I’m delighted that I can now get them here in the US!
“It’s too good for kids”
Toffifee Whole Hazelnut in Nougat Cream Filled Caramell ( 125 G / 15 Pcs )
How do you know you are getting the real German Candy… look at the label… you want TOFFIFEE not Toffifay. These amazing treats were favorites of mine as a child, and I always hoped my Opa would include a few packages in the box. You knew they were special because they came came in special trays. A shell of caramel was filled with a soft nougat cream, then topped with a dollop of chocolate… Bliss… Sure, there was a whole hazelnut in the center, but I was an expert at sucking off every bit of candy, and then spitting that nut across the yard. No wonder the advertising jingle said “Toffifee, it’s too good for kids!”.
The Fresh maker!
Mentos ,(2 Of Each Flavor) The Chewy Mint Sampler/Bundle – Mint, Cinnamon, Strawberry, Spearmint, Green Apple, Fruit and Rainbow – Includes (14) 1.32oz Rolls
Who doesn’t remember those fun commercials! Mentos the Freshmaker! I love the mint flavored chewy candies… but I also love the fruit flavored ones. A hard outer shell, and chewy on the inside. Sweet, but not too sweet…and perfect or sharing.
Lakritz /Black Licorice
Intense Licorice Flavor!
Love it or hate it, you can find Lakritz all over Northern Germany. It is a taste I never acquired (but, it turns out that this is a genetic thing…) But those who love it are in luck, because now you can get REAL German Lakritz here in the United States (and not that stuff that Red Vines claims is licorice). Lakritz comes in different shapes like cats and coins, different texture, and even mixed with other flavors (I have to say, Lakritz Toffee is just a dirty trick!). I’ll just let you have mine…
You can even get SALTED Licorice!

Schoko Strolche / Schaumkusse
“Knackig, schaumig, knusprig”
Dickmann’s Schoko StrolcheGermanShop24
In a less enlightened age, these delightful Chocolate Covered Marshmallows had a different name… luckily, today we call them Schaumkusse (foam kisses) or Schoko Strolche (Chocolate Rascals … like the Little Rascals). Schoko Strolche aren’t like stiff American chocolate covered marshmallows, they are more foamy or soft. The soft luscious filling rests on a waffle cookie, so so the bottom is flat. The thin layer of chocolate can be dark, milk or even white chocolate… and the candies come in a regular (large) size, and even minis. For a super treat, stick a few into a warm Broetchen… total BLISS!
Sweet Almond paste
Marzipan, that sweet almond confection, is made by combining Almond Meal and Honey. This candy is a huge favorite for so many people (like my younger sister). You can get it covered in chocolate, in loaves, and shaped like fruits or piggies. Marzipan Pigs are considered a lucky gift at during the Christmas and New Year holidays. It’s also baked into cakes, like Stollen, or rolled thin and used to cover cakes. You can even get Marzipan Potatoes! The best marzipan in Germany comes from Luebeck.
Niederegger Marzipan-Potatoes (Kartoffel-Beutel) 150g/5.33 ozReber Mozart Kugel 8 Piece Tray in Bag, 5.6 Ounces
Bergen Marzipan M-1 Assorted Fruit, 8 Ounce
Nestle Choco Crossies Classic 150g
Who would think that Chocolate covered Corn Flakes and Almond slivers could be soooooo addicting!?! But around my house, when one of the gold-foil Choco-Crossies packages is opened, the contents VANISH in an instant. Even my daughter who “HATES” nuts, keeps coming back for more! These crunchy treats are perfect on movie night… or any day that ends in a “Y”.
My husband grew up on a military base in Germany during the 80s. He fondly remembers a candy in the shape of a star that he says only the Haribo gummy frogs come close to resembling. Do you know what these may have been?
Could they be these? Trolli Seesterne? http://amzn.to/2iJolvv
Or Haribo also makes Seesterne….
In the mid-60’s I lived in Bavaria and purchased “Sour Stuck” – think planks of sour candy in different colors/flavors. Sold kind of in bulk by street vendors. Also licorice wheels.
Are they still made?
I don’t know about Sour Stuck … I will post a query to the Facebook page, someone will know!
You can get the licorice wheels here….http://amzn.to/2l4hJYL
Yes, I also remember these and loved them as a child when we were in Germany many years ago. I sure would like to have some again if they weren’t too expensive. We mangled the name as saurer stucken (for sour sticks).
They are still made in Germany by a company named Sadex. I found them online at http://www.germandeli.com/Sweets/Candy/brand/Sadex but they are out of stock as of 05/18/2017.
Sadex Brause-Stäbchen is the name of what we knew as sour sticks, but this translates into Shower Sticks.
I grew up eating Veilchen Pastillen and Salmiak Pastillen..The Veilchen Pastillen reminded me of little jujubes but black…I haven’t seen them in years but oh they were sooo good
I found Salmiak Pastillen here–> https://amzn.to/2GSzDIH
Brause doesn’t just mean shower, also used for lemonade drinks, or “foaming”, hense with these foaming lemonade sticks.
Thanks for the link, this brought back memories and I am on the list now
I, too, remember sauer stücken. Lived in Germany from 1953-55 and again from 1962-65. Had a teacher who was always eating them in class. They looked somewhat like a stick of chalk. One day she inadvertently started to eat a stick of chalk instead. LOL Good memory
This Brause Stäbchen and yes they are still available
My parents were stationed in Germany in 1960’s. I also had Sour Stuck. Also had real seashells filled with honey. I’m interested in both. If you have any info on where I can purchase them please let me know.
Schleckmuschel! You can find them here–> https://www.germanshop24.com/sweets/bulk-packs/tri-d-aix-schleckmuscheln-100-count-bag/?aff_id=18149
Hi Ron! I too spent a few years in Germany (Frankfurt) in from 1963-1966 and I absolutely remember stopping at the candy store and getting sour stuck…they were covered in a powder and put into a small paper bag. When I returned to Bavaria in 2008 and 2018, our German tour guide didn’t know what I was talking about.
Have you seen Reed’s Choco Toffee?
No… I haven’t … I wouldn’t know where to find it.
Back in 1965 I use to go to this little store in Dusslingen and get these amazing chocolate candies. They were very thin, covered in chocolate and had a crunchy center that was kind of honeycombed in texture. Does anyone have a clue as to what I am talking about? They were wrapped in gold foil paper.
gosh that sounds familiar… let me put it out to the facebook page and see if anyone recognizes it.
Maybe this is what you talking about.
I am looking for suckers That were cone shape with different flavors and the had a plastic figure as the hand. I think they were call Waldzee suckers not for sure, this would have been in the 60 s . Around Ansbach
Ahhhh…. found them!
They are called Küfa Kreisel Lutscher… you can get them from Amazon.de http://amzn.to/2Hfumtp
So happy you found them! I have been thinking of them lately. We enjoyed them in Darmstadt in 1957 to 1959. I will look on Amazon to be sure they are the same.
Do you know where to buy those smurf gummies that come in the tub not the bag? Cuz they are different in consistency and taste.
Amazon carries the Tub…. click here–>https://amzn.to/2wRXF0u
I remember a violet flavored candy shaped similar to tic tac that my grandmother would bring back when she visited Germany. Came in a purple floral box. Anyone have an idea what it might be.
HI, JUST RAN ACROSS THIS WEB SITE, AS A CHILD IN GERMANY WE HAD A BROCHEN ( BREAD ) MAN COME TO THE ARMY BASE. HE HAD SOME MARSHMALLOW SHAPED DWARFS, SIMILAR TO THE CONSISTENCY OF THE UNDERSIDE OF HARIBO FROGS. ANY IDEAS. I LOVED THOSE THINGS.
Could they be Smurf Marshmallows? check here–>https://amzn.to/2zoqP9s
Not being a gummie person, I have fallen in love with jellies and hamburger specks from Luhder. World market used to carry them but discontinued and on Amazon it states that they are out of stock and not sure if they will return. Has this company went out of business? Do you know of any places in East Tn that might carry them?
You might check Yummy Bazaar?
Hi, I’m looking for a German Taffy of sorts. A friend mentioned having some about 7 years ago and I would like to surprise him with some. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
I am looking for candy that we bought off a bread truck while living in germany. It was a shell that was filled with soft honey. I would like to see if there is a chance that these can be bought. Thank you.
They are called Schleckmuscheln.
You can get them in bulk on Amazon—>https://amzn.to/2SRK6aA
As a kid, in the early 1960’s I lived in Darmstadt, Germany. We could buy hardened honey in sea shells. I’ve never had it in any other country. Where can we buy it now?
Amazon sells Schleckmuschel, but only in bulk
Hi, my husband was in Germany in the early 80’s and he loved this candy that was called sour tongues. They are gummies that looked like tongues. Have you heard of them? Also he had these spiral chips that he would get at his high school in Stuggart at a snack shack, know where we may find these?
Im looking for a candy called Wunderball. It’s like a jawbreaker with a sweet center. Maybe gummi? Do you carry these?
Amazon carries them in Bulk–>https://amzn.to/2IIRFgE
50 years ago I used to get a German candy at a shop in Los Angeles, It was called I-Chew, and was like large single sticks of gum shaped chewy candy. Any idea if this still exists?
Not sure… I’m not seeing it online
I’m so sad Lidl have stopped selling Emotionali Multi-fruit lollies.Can you tell me who will stock them so I can buy them.Many thanks.
I can’t track any down in the US… will keep looking
I have a friend who is giving a baby shower and is looking for any one or combo of the following items: a miniature cabbage, marzipan or chocolate, small chocolate carrots in foil or not, a baby, on it’s own or in a blue blanket. She needs them by Sept. 12. Any chance you can source any of these? There are 30 guests, and she is making crepe paper boxes that look like small cabbages with a baby in the top. She would like to put a little bit on candy in each as part of the favor. Thanks for any help you can give us!
Hmmm… I found mini marzipan carrots here–>https://www.germanshop24.com/groceries/baking/baking-ingredients/dr.-oetker-fine-marzipan-carrots/?aff_id=18149
Truffle cabbages here–>http://tidd.ly/69293f26
I would like Rahm Hasen. A typical Easter candy in all sorts of bunny molds.
Any ideas where I can find some?
I have this post about Zuckerhasen… I have been searching for them, and Rahmhasen, here in the US.
I will let you know if/when I find them
Looking for the pink and white fondant mints that were my parents and now my favorite. From Germany, but I found them through the Vermont country store briefly and from Germandeli on line but they have closed. Any hope to find these again?
Were they Schokolinsen https://www.germanshop24.com/sweets/hard-candies-and-caramel/piasten-choco-lentils-8.82-oz/?aff_id=18149?
We lived in Bitburg and got these hard malted suckers covered in chocolate, does anyone know if they still make them?
So cool you have the candy in the shell. When I was young I begged my brother for a taste, he would never give me one. I have mentioned this type of candy many times and many people did not recognize it. You have proven that it was not my imagination.
Brothers can be a drag (although the Schleckmuschel might be a funny gag-gift for him now)
I remember large 1 to 2 inch thick candy animal lollipops from Germany. Do you recall these and do you sell them?
Also, I remember wonderful dark bitter chocolate cigarettes, pipes, etc. Do you sell that type of bitter chocolate?
I lived in Germany for 9 years as a boy.
I know about Zuckerhasen (Sugar Rabbits…) like these–> https://germangirlinamerica.com/what-is-a-zuckerhase/
Unfortunately, I don’t sell any of the candies directly.
Hello. In the 1970s, my neighbor gave me these delicious candies that looked like jellybeans.The candies had a hard outer shell and were filled with oozing rum. I believe they were white. He called them German jellybeans. Do you have any idea what they might’ve been? Thank you.
were they licorice?
Ok, lived in germany in permasans. Miss the gummy truck and ice cream truck.
He carried a box of little powder compressed type little pills…usually soda flavors. Do you know what they were called?
Also he also carried a paper thin waffer sorta like catholic communion bread….
Would love to find that too
Lived in Germany 78-80. Really fell in love with a hard candy… Girlfriend called it Atembaum .. and Atemgell or -geld
(Atem- Breath; I know)They were an odd colour light green – looked like absinth. They tasted slightly perfume-y but you could smell them off someone’s breath very easily. They seemed addictive.
Could it be Atemgold? They were square candies originally…? An herbal minty thing?
I’m not seeing them for sale anywhere.
And now there is something round and blue marketed as cough drops
Search the image Atemgold…
Lived in Germany many times between 1967 and 2008. During the 70s, the brotchen man would visit and bring breads and other goodies. I still can’t find the lollipops we used to get. The stick was shaped like an animal and the candy was various basic fruit flavors.
I’m looking for those too. I’ll let you know if I get lucky
