One of my favorite things about traveling to far off lands is getting to taste the local delicacies. From turtle soup and springbok biltog to lobster ice cream, I’ve tasted the good, the bad and the ugly. Best of all, I love to raid international supermarkets for local candies which often look and taste nothing like their counterparts back home.
Since Halloween is upon us, I thought it would be fun to talk about ways to incorporate exotic flavors into a candy bar. What a great way to recognize your cultural heritage or favorite vacation spots. Like you, I drool over Amy Atlas’s gorgeous monochromatic candy buffets like this one.
If you’re planning one for your shower or wedding, why not incorporate some exotic flavors into the mix?
