  • Candy Innovation

    candy, kids  [html]
    What innovations in candy have there been since the '90s? Are there new flavors? Better imitations of existing flavors? New textures?

    So far, all of the candy my kids have brought home seems to be things we could get 25 years ago. Though possibly flavors have improved, since I've only been trying what they've decided to share with me.

    There have been some gains due to globalization, where candy that was previously hard to get in the US or unknown here is now more widely available, but has there been development beyond that?
