2000s candy


Want to host a throwback Thursday party but don’t know what snacks to prepare? We have prepared an introduction to 2000s candy that perfectly matches retro parties for you! We offer a wide variety of early 2000s candies that were very popular in the 2000s.


Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans

Every Flavor Beans, as the name suggests, has every flavor!

The movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was released in 2001. It is no exaggeration to say that it has set off a craze for magic around the world! I believe that friends who have watched this movie must be very longing for the magical snacks in the magical world! Although it sounds wrong, life is about trying. Who doesn’t want to often vomit-flavored candy?

Of course, this 2000s candy made by Jelly Belly Company doesn’t just have vomiting flavor, it actually has everything: including banana, black pepper, blueberry, booger, marshmallow, cherry, cinnamon, dirt, earthworm, earwax, grass, green Apple and so on. You can really choose whatever you like.

This kind of candy is also great for some party games, or as a casual punishment for losing when playing games with friends: if you lose, you will eat a candy. That must be really interesting!

Twizzlers are a type of gummy candy manufactured by the Hershey Company. They appear in the shape of strings and are usually red, but there are variations in other flavors and colors. Even if you have never eaten it before (maybe you are really young?), you must have seen it from some YouTubers: there are many YouTubers who will do special topics on retro snacks. If you are interested, you can also search and take a look. .

Twizzlers look like fun candies, sour, sweet, and soft. You can often see them at parties or in movie theaters. I’ve also seen some cake decorations, good ideas, who says only candy canes can appear on cakes?

M&M’s is the candy product of Mars Company. It is famous and still popular. Round colorful bean-shaped candies with an impressive “m” mark on the surface.

I’m sure you’ve all seen those commercials with chocolate beans running around with long arms and legs. M&M’s are also often associated with various events and holidays, such as Halloween with special colors and flavors.

To put it simply, they are chocolate beans. I particularly like its crunchy texture. The chocolate beans themselves are not big, but the sugar coating is very crispy and there is a happy chocolate heart inside. Because it comes in many colors, when I was a kid, I would save the chocolate beans of my favorite color until last. How about you?

M&M's 2000s candies


When I was a kid, I actually couldn’t tell the difference between Skittles and M&M’s. I only knew that one was a sweet and sour fruit candy when bitten, and the other was a chocolate bean. In fact, they are both products of the same company (Mars), and there is almost no difference in appearance, except that M&M’s chocolate beans have an m on the surface, while Skittles have an s on the surface.

Skittles’ flavors are more classic, including strawberry, lemon, orange, grape and green apple. These are some of the more classic flavors that are famous among fruit candies.

It is said that in addition to traditional Skittles, there are other variants, such as sour Skittles, chocolate Skittles and Skittles Gummies. In my childhood memories, I have a deeper impression of sour Skittles: because they are really sour! ! But I haven’t eaten much of the other ones. What’s the difference between chocolate Skittles and M&M’s? I became curious.

Sour Patch Kids

Gummies made by Mondelez International were first introduced in Sweden in the 1970s and later became popular in the United States. Usually appears as candies in the shape of little people.

Almost every time I see Sour Patch Kids, my teeth start to ache. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate it, but I like this sweet and sour flavor candy. I have always liked this classic candy. Although I don’t eat it all the time, every once in a while, I want to buy some and try it. Sour Patch Kids is said to have also launched some innovative flavors and variations, such as ice cream flavors and the Crush Flavor range, and I think I will buy some right away to try.

Hershey’s Kisses

Hershey Company, again! My childhood dream was to become the head of this company, so that I might have endless candies.

The fame of Hershey’s Kisses comes more from its unique shape. When it comes to this shape, everyone knows it is this chocolate. Each Hershey’s Kisses chocolate is cone-shaped, a bit like a drop, or a meringue. Chocolates are usually wrapped in silver foil with the Hershey’s logo printed on it. That little streamer is like a flag and brings a lot of joy to me.

Hershey’s Kisses are filled chocolates, so they come in many flavors: of course, when you see its round belly, you know it must be filled! Love it!

Jolt Energy Gum

Jolt Energy Gum is a caffeinated gum beloved for its energy-drink-like energizing effect and refreshing mint flavor. I actually haven’t had much of this gum before and it is said that two pieces of Jolt Energy Gum contain as much caffeine as a cup of coffee, is this true?

Candy Corn

Candy Corn, three-color corn kernel image gummies! Because Candy Corn is the image of corn kernels, it is often used to make some interesting shapes: such as putting them together into a whole corn. Perhaps because of its production time (it’s only made seasonally, probably starting at the end of August and continuing into the fall) or its more orange color, it’s a must-have fudge for Halloween almost every year! What kind of candy have you seen on Halloween in recent years? Is it as gorgeous and eye-catching as 2000s candy?

Milk Duds

Milk Duds, Hershey Company again, is another chocolate bean candy. The outer layer is milk chocolate coating, and the inside is soft caramel. I think it is sweeter than M&M’s, emphasizing the salty-sweet flavor of caramel, while the classic M&M’s only have milk chocolate flavor.

Gummy Bears

Gummy Bears are so named because of their bear-shaped appearance, they are so cute! Tell me, which part do you bite first when eating Gummy Bears?

Friends who like chewy gummy candies must not miss the cute Gummy Bears candy. Maybe you’ve seen the “screaming gummy bear” meme? That one was really interesting.

Milky Way

Milky Way is a chocolate candy product from Mars, Incorporated. Another chocolate candy! I don’t know if we can put together a chocolate communism chimney here. Milky Way appears as a long bar, usually wrapped in silver wrapping paper, somewhat like a Snickers bar. The mouthfeel is soft, the taste of chocolate is rich, and the caramel center has a sweet and salty taste. OK, the taste is also similar.
