National Chocolate Candy day is December 28th, so if you were looking for another reason to stuff your face around the holidays, we just gave you one. Chocolate candy is something that most people enjoy, and could probably make peace between nations (okay, not really). Still, chocolate candies are enjoyed all over the world. Like anything else, not all chocolate candy is the same. Depending on where you go, there are chocolate candies that some countries have that others have never heard of. Here are some of the most popular chocolate candies enjoyed all over the world, and some countries have me a little jealous that I don’t have them in the states.

1. Mozartkugel – Austria

This candy is a ball of pistachio marzipan covered with a layer of nougat, then dipped in a dark chocolate coating. Also known as “Mozart ball,” the famous composer is pictured on the face of the wrapping.

2. Violet Crumble – Australia

This bar has a honeycomb center covered in chocolate. The bar was the manufacturer’s first time attempting a chocolate bar. The first venture was an assortment of chocolates, where the founder  put them in a purple box adorned with violets in tribute to his wife. The honeycomb candy in the assortment was so popular he decided to make individual bars of the product, and the Violet Crumble was born.

3. Sky Bar – United States

4. Daim Bar – Sweden

A response to the Heath bar, Daim bars are a crunchy, almond bar covered in milk chocolate. No offense to Heath, but these sound way better.

5. Mars – United Kingdom

Mars were first made and distributed only in the U.K., but can now be found all over the world. The U.S. version differs from the U.K. version, which has nougat and caramel covered in milk chocolate.

6. Dunakavics – Hungary

Like an M&M candy, these chocolate bits are surrounded by a colorful candy shell. The difference here is that these also pack an almond flavor.

7 . Pulparindo – Mexico

This candy has almost every flavor. From Mexico, it’s a candy made from the pulp of a tamarind fruit, then flavored with sugar, salt, and chili peppers. Sweet, salty, and spicy, this candy strikes a balance between them all. There’s also an “extra picante” version, just in case the standard isn’t spicy enough for you.
