Have You Tried Any Of These 10 Weird Candy Flavors?

You may have sampled one of every chocolate bar and candy you can find at your local grocery store, but companies are always releasing special flavors that you may not know about.

Some of these special treats were only released for a short time, while others are very popular - but only in foreign countries.  

You may never have the chance to sample some of these bizarre flavors, but they're worth remembering as pioneers, that pushed our taste buds in new and exciting directions.

If you've tried at least two of these unique candy creations, feel free to call yourself an honorary doctor of junk food.

1. White Cheesecake M&Ms

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and M&Ms have gotten into the spirit with a decadent new flavor. These come in special holiday colors and have white cheesecake filling instead of chocolate.

2. Soy Sauce Kit Kats (and 300 other flavors)

While most countries are lucky to have one special Kit Kat flavor, in Japan the crispy snack is beloved for its dozens of limited edition chocolates. Other savory flavors include corn, Gouda cheese, Miso soup, sake, and wasabi.

3. Red Velvet Oreos

Oreos have been the best selling cookies in the United States since 1912, and it's easy to see why with special flavors like this Red Velvet variety, which had both Red Velvet cookies and cream cheese filling.

4. Hershey's Chocolate Twizzlers

Licorice purists may insist on sticking to the classic red variety, but Twizzlers loves to experiment with new combinations. If you love Hershey's chocolate, these twisted treats might be for you.

5. Skittles Confused?

This might be the most mean-spirited candy ever made. Not only did Skittles swap the flavors in their famous candy so the colors don't match, but the label mocks you for not being in on the joke.  At least you can get your revenge by eating all those confusing little candies.

6. Dairy Milk Spectacular Seven

Only 50 of these special chocolate bars - which feature seven different Dairy Milk flavors combined into one Franken-bar - were ever made, so eating one of these bars is a once-in-a-lifetime treat.

7. Gatorgum

This spin-off candy promised to help quench thirst like the sports drink it was inspired by. It even came in orange and lemon-lime flavors, just like the drink.

8. Pumpkin Spiced Peeps

The soft, gooey marshmallow filling inside these treats goes great with any flavor, but this seasonal version will put you in a relaxing Autumn mood any time of year.

9.  Hershey's Kiss Deluxe

The discerning chocolate connoisseur won't settle for just any candy, and Hershey made these treats with their most glamorous customers in mind. These have a whole roasted hazelnut in their center, wrapped in two layers of chocolate and crispy bits. Oh, and they're twice the size of the regular candy.

10. Starburst Superfruit

Does this count as a serving of fruit? These candies may not boost your metabolism the way pomegranates and açaí berries do, but they still taste delicious.
