10 of the weirdest snacks on Snack-Box.co.uk

British snacks used to be a serious affair. There were rules. You had a crisp, with or without salt. Perhaps a cheese and onion, or a salt and vinegar, but that's quite enough choice thank you very much!

The sweet shop, with its walls of glass jars and enormous weighing scales was where you went for weird and wonderful tastes, like Aniseed Balls, Pear Drops and Gobstoppers, but the newsagent's shelves played it safe with traditional favourites like the Mars Bar, the Marathon and the Kit Kat. 

These days, manufacturers can't help themselves but dream up increasingly wild tastes, textures and flavour combinations. Here are ten of the weirdest snacks you can buy right now on Snack-Box.co.uk.


1. Cadbury Dairy Milk Jelly Popping Candy

This chocolate madness combines Cadbury's famous Dairy Milk chocolate with jelly chunks, popping candy (remember that?!) and candy shells. It really is a strange sensation to eat.

2. Twix Salted Caramel

So, I love a twix - I'm not a monster. But this is next level. 
It actually makes me wonder if they created it by accident. It's such a subtle change to a classic favourite that if you eat it quickly, you almost can't tell the difference. But it's in my top three Snack-Box.co.uk snacks. 10/10 must try.

3. McCoys Hot Mexican Chilli

As a lover of all things spicy, I was immediately drawn to these beauties when they arrived in stock. They did not disappoint. Its the thick, brittle ridge crisp you know so well, with a flavour that's oh so perfect!

4. Haribo Unicorns Zing!

Now, this is where things get silly. I know Haribo like a weird sweet, but these are something else. They may say 'Share Size' on the bag, but I ain't sharing! Imagine fruity Tangfastics in the shape of mythical horses... Awesome.

5. Kit Kat Chunky Salted Caramel Fudge

We're back on chocolate and it's a pretty solid one. The Kit Kat Chunky was Nestle's most successful product launch of the 90's and these new varieties, including the Kit Kat Chunky White and the Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter are just as good. A very different 'salted caramel' experience to the Twix Salted Caramel. Oh well, you'll have to try both!

6. Galaxy Cookie Crumble

So, full disclosure, I haven't eaten one of these. I'd like to, but I'm scared I might not stop at one. Let me know in the comments section below if it's as mindblowing as I'm imagining.

7. Tango Strawberry and Watermelon

It's sweet, I'll say that much!! This fruit explosion is a massive summery hit and if you want my advice, would go very, very well with gin!

8. Fish 'n' Chips Salt and Vinegar

A staple British bar snack, Burton's Fish 'n' Chips are seriously, seriously flavourful! The vinegary, salty punch is generous and the little fish and chip shaped crisps are crispy and crunchy. My favourite snack with a beer.

9. Hershey's Cookies and Cream

At the risk of sounding like a Ronseal advert, this great little bar does exactly what it says on the tin. Its Oreos with a glass of milk. And who doesn't love that?!

Not many of the American snacks have made it big in the UK, but this bar is welcome to stay as long as it likes!

10. Red Leicester Mini Cheddars

And finally, the AWESOME Red Leicester Mini Cheddars. The cheesy taste you expect from Mini Cheddars, but more grown-up. Top tip - enjoy them with actual Red Leicester and maybe a chutney. Game changer.
