What are Nerds Sweets? - Candy Mail UK

Are you ready to experience the intensely fruity and tangy sweet taste of Wonka Nerds American candy. It’s a mouth-watering, fruit blast of a sweet treat!

Nerds are a classic chewy candy created in the 1980’s and an all-time favourite that is flavoursome and fun. These tiny, tangy, crunchy and neon-coloured mini candies today come in new varieties from Rainbow Nerds to Big Chewy Nerds.

What’s your top Nerds flavour?

Nerds are famous for putting together different flavours, usually two flavours per box with each flavour in a separate compartment. Grape and strawberry are one of the most legendary Nerds flavour combinations in America.

Nerds flavours always hit the mark and one of our favourite combo’s is What-A-Melon and So Very Cherry double pack.


Rainbow Nerds are a punchy cocktail of tangy and crunchy sweets and have to be the perfect recipe for all Nerds lovers. You get all these Nerds flavours in one box – Strawberry (sweet and fruity), Grape (fresh and juicy), Orange (tangy), Lemon (zesty) and Apple (sour and a little tart).


According to those in the know or ‘Nerds fanatics’, apparently the greatest Nerds flavour to ever exist is the Double Dipped Cherry Lemonade and Watermelon Apple, with that description it’s got to be worth a try.

Nerds Rope are a gummy string with crunchy Nerds attached to the outside. Choose between Nerds Very Berry Rope or Tropical flavour for a chewy, fruity string packed with sweet Nerds.

Picture this; Rainbow Nerds surrounding fruity, gummy centres in a poppable cluster packed with tangy, crunchy NERDS. Wow! That’s Nerds Gummy Clusters, so delicious, there are no words to describe them. 

For a real nerdy treat, try Big Chewy Nerds in Orange, Lemon, Strawberry and Grape to really pack a punch with chewy insides and wrapped in a crunchy outside. For a sour kick, there’s Sour Big Chewy Nerds which are sweet and crunchy on the outside and sour and chewy inside, with four shocking flavours of Strawberry Lemonade, Blue Raspberry, Blood Orange and Watermelon.

Are Nerds Vegan?

Unfortunately, Nerds generally are not vegan, because they’re sold in multi-colours and flavours which almost always contain a red or pink flavour which has carmine in it, and carmine is not vegan friendly. Depending on where you fall on artificial colours and sugar, you might be okay with some flavours, but it’s a case of looking carefully at the ingredients and making a judgement.
