TikTok Made Me Buy It: Candy and Snacks - Candy Mail UK

There's more to TikTok than just teenagers (and adults) showing off their dance moves. Now it's full of fun, crazy food challenges and trends that everyone wants to try. We've rounded up some of the best, and obviously you can buy your supplies here at Candymail so you can try them out for yourself.

Nik-L-Nip Original Wax Bottles

Although Nik-L-Nips have been around since the mid 1900s, they are suddenly all the rage again thanks to TikTok. Nik-L-Nip Original Wax Bottles are little chewy bottles filled with tasty liquid candy. There's 4 refreshing Nik-L-Nip flavours of Cherry, Orange, Lemon and Lime, but the big question is how do you eat them?

You Bite 'em, Drink 'em, Chew 'em.

Once the top of the small, wax bottle-shaped container has been bitten off, you can drink the fruit-flavoured syrup inside. Afterward the wax can be chewed like gum.

Nerds Rope

Nerds Rope - a gummy rope covered in colourful nerds, a classic! It’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t like these rope gummy candies, but even if you aren't a fan of the chewy texture, there's still something about them that makes them hard to resist. If you’ve never tried Nerds Rope before (or if it has been a while) then let us tell you: these are absolutely delicious! Though Nerds have been popular for years, this pairing of chewy squishy texture and crunchy pieces has made them a fan favourite on TikTok.

Eating Sour Candy Challenge

Sour candy is one of the biggest candy trends on TikTok, with thousands of videos dedicated to 'The Challenge'. The challenge being, seeing who out of you and your friends can survive the most sourest candy without making a face or spitting it out.

If you want to try this challenge we recommend going big with Toxic Waste, it is hazardously sour candy!

Fruity’s Ju-C Jelly Fruit Candy

The TikTok generation went crazy for these Jelly Fruit sweets. The most popular way to eating them was made famous by a TikToker called Jaden Sprinz. All you do is pop them in between your teeth and bite them, but the fun part is seeing if the jelly liquid would burst into your mouth or all over the floor!

Takis Chips

If you love spicy food, you’ll love Takis chips. These fiery snacks often compared to Flamin’ Hot Cheetos are renowned for their red fiery powder. Takis are rolled mini corn tortilla chips that are incredibly hot! Takis quickly grew in popularity on TikTok and got a reputation for their extremely intense flavours.

You can find lots of videos of people using Takis in their cooking to spice things up, anyone for Takis coated mozzarella sticks? Yes please!

Pickle challenge

If you're a TikTok user it would have been hard for you to miss all the 'Pickle challenges' on the platform lately, from users filming themselves eating the sourest pickles to wrapping up their pickles in candy fruit roll ups!
