The Perfect Candy Pairings: Which Candies Go Well Together?


Candy is a delightful treat on its own, but have you ever wondered how different candies can complement each other, creating a symphony of flavors and textures? Just like pairing food and beverages, pairing candies can take your taste buds on a thrilling adventure. In this blog post, we'll explore the art of candy pairings and discover some perfect existent combinations that will elevate your candy indulgence to new heights.

Some candy pairings have stood the test of time, becoming classic combinations that are beloved by candy enthusiasts. Here are a few timeless pairings to try:

The contrasting flavors of sweet and salty can create a harmonious balance. This combination will tantalize your taste buds and provide a satisfying contrast. At Ryans we have different options of sweet and salty such as the McVities Club Salted Caramel Biscuits, the Walkers Toffees Salted Caramel, the Ryans milk chocolate covered peanuts or Chocolate Pretzels, among others.

Also, the contrast of creamy and crunchy textures adds an exciting dimension to candy pairings. Pair creamy milk chocolate with crispy rice treats or chocolate with crunchy toffee. The creaminess melts in your mouth, while the crunchiness offers a satisfying bite, creating a delightful sensory experience. To experience this delightful pairing we have choices like the Cadbury Double Decker, its lower layer is a combination of crispy cereal and nougat, providing a satisfying crunch and chewiness and an upper layer with a generous coating of Cadbury's signature milk chocolate, adding a creamy and sweet element to the overall taste.

Some fruits often have a tangy twist that pairs well with other flavors like yogurt! Satisfy your sweet taste cravings with our Ryans Yogurt Raisins that combines juicy raisins and a creamy yogurt coating for a wholesome and delicious treat or a funnier parfait!

What about peanut butter and chocolate? The rich and nutty flavor of peanut butter complements the smooth sweetness of chocolate. Try our Reese’s peanut butter cups, KitKat peanut butter or the traditional Butterfinger chocolate bar for a delectable treat.

Another favorite combination is mint and dark chocolate. The cool and refreshing taste of mint pairs beautifully with the rich and indulgent flavor of chocolate. Enjoy mint-filled chocolates for a satisfying combination. At Ryans we have fabulous options with this combination like the Fry’s peppermint cream or York Peppermint Patties.

Finally, the combination of orange flavor with chocolate is a classic and delicious pairing that has been enjoyed in various treats over the years. Some of the most popular options you can find at Ryans are the Dairy Milk Orange Giant Buttons, a variation of Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate buttons, but with a delightful twist of zesty orange flavor.  And the Terry's Milk Chocolate Orange is an iconic treat loved by many; it comes in the form of segmented milk chocolate, resembling an orange fruit.
