Pioneers of the donut burger and the bacon fudge sundae, America is famous for its outrageously rich – yet seriously tasty - culinary treats. But if you’ve never been to the USA, don’t worry, you can still try a sample of their best candy right here at All Occasions Sweet Shop!

The popularity and availability of American sweets is on the rise in the UK, and there’s a reason! Their ideas are bold and unique and the results are usually sweet, delicious and a little bit indulgent. From soda to cereal and candy bars, we believe All Occasion’s range of American confectionery showcases some of the best sweet offerings from across the pond. Our selection is wide and varied, from popular household names such as Kellogg’s Fruit Loops to those products that are still largely unheard of over here, like Twinkies and Red Vines.

Lucky Charms cereal, in particular, seems to fly off our shelves. Perhaps that’s down to the magic of their mascot Lucky the Leprechaun, or perhaps it’s because they’re just so darn tasty! Lucky Charms first appeared in stores across America in 1964, an invention of the General Mills food company, and are still widely popular now- a staple of the American breakfast table.

Made up of toasted oat pieces and colourful marshmallow shapes, Lucky Charms are guaranteed to be a winner with kids. Particularly given the fact that once milk is poured over them, the colours leak from the marshmallows and into the milk creating a delightful rainbow effect. The perfect weekend breakfast treat!

Or perhaps you’d like to try a bar of American milk chocolate from our Hershey’s range? Pioneered by Milton Hershey in 1894 when he decided to make a milk chocolate coating for his caramels, America has never looked back. The first full bar of Hershey’s milk chocolate was enjoyed in 1900, and by 1905 Hershey had his own factory for producing his chocolate.

Now - 114 years since the first bar was eaten - Hershey’s range has expanded to include varieties such as Cookies and Crème flavour, and is available in over 90 countries. They're even responsible for the other popular American brand Reese’s, famous for their Peanut Butter Cups. Try a bar of Hershey’s here, or if you’re already a fan – or know someone who is – treat them to a giant bar. You won’t regret it!

We also stock American sodas in a wider range of flavours than are usually available here in the UK, like strawberry Fanta and cherry Dr Pepper, as well as the American classic A&W Root Beer- definitely worth a try! Our American sweet range doesn’t end there though, we also sell Wonka candy products as well as Skittles and M&M’s, all guaranteed to put a smile on your face and make you come back to try more!

Don’t just take our word for it though, head over to our American candy page and see the range for yourself! Let us know your favourite, or if there’s anything you’ve tried on your travels across the USA that you’d like to see included here!
