Candy around the world(Epcot WS)

My kids are wanting to shop around the Epcots World Showcase for candy in each country when we go in September.
What are some of your favorites at each country?

TIA

Japan has a bunch of awesome candy,the mango Hi Chew has as much mango flavor as any mango.UK has some really yummy chocolate bars,the flake bar is very unique.

Germany has delicious "Mozart" chocolates. Canada has maple sugar candies. Norway has good licorice, and I found Turkish delight, which I love, in the UK pavilion.

What a fun idea! One of our favorites is the firkløver chocolate at the Norway pavilion.

Mexico doesn't have a lot of options but I have seen in the carts outside the Three Caballeros entrance a tamarind chili candy,I'm not sure if it's always there as I've only seen it once or twice but you could check it out.

I thought I remembered Dulce de Leche in the Mexico pavilion, but it's been awhile.

Cute idea though - candy around the world!

In September in central Florida, you will probably want to avoid buying chocolate candy unless you are eating it right then and there (which sounds like a fine idea to me!)

In England I like to get a Curly Wurly, it's like the old Marathon bars from the 70's. I also like a Flake. It's just a chocoalte bar but the chocolate is flaky, it's an odd texture but good.

Karamel Kuche Cermany - love the milk and/or dark chocolate covered sea salt caramels - I would buy one - have a bite - take it home and cut it up into little pieces - just one tiny bit of it was all the sugar I needed - LOL one caramel lasted a week!

Absolutely my favorite candy in Epcot. Maybe even anywhere.

Japan has the best candy, and the packaging is gorgeous. They have a bag of apple-flavored candy that's just like biting into an actual apple. Yummy delicious. And I like the chocolate Pocky, too.

I like the rice candy from Japan, The Mint aero bar from UK, and the carmel store in Germany is my down fall. I lived so close to Canada I never think to look for candy there.
