That’s an easy one to answer, you can buy Airheads in the UK right here at Candymail.co.uk, the home of American candy, drinks and snacks. If you’re not a fan of Airheads yet, they are a ‘must try’ American sweet, especially if you love chewy taffy candy. Original Airheads are tangy and very chewy, which is always a good thing when it comes to choosing candy, simply because it lasts longer!
Who invented Airheads?
Airheads is a relatively new American candy created in the 1980’s by Perfetti Van Melle and produced today in Kentucky, USA. Airheads is now one of the largest non-chocolate confections in North America.
Why are Airheads called Airheads?
When it comes to why are Airheads called Airheads, it’s down the Marketing Director of Van Melle who asked his son the question “What do you call a friend who did something silly?” Airheads is the name that came up and was followed by the smiley balloon face that greets us on the Airheads candy wrappers today.
Are Airheads vegan friendly?
There is some good news here but take care as Airheads bars are vegan but Airheads Bites are NOT vegan as they contain beeswax and shellac.
It’s a similar story with gelatine as Airheads Soft Filled Bites contain gelatine, which make them non vegan. When we looked at whether Airheads are gluten free, again some are, some are not. Airhead Bars and Bites are gluten free, but Airheads Extremes contain gluten.
Both Airheads Bars and Airheads Xtremes are Halal since they contain no animal-derived ingredients. As with all candy, we always recommend checking ingredients carefully to ensure Airheads are suitable for your diet.
What are the most popular Airheads flavours?
The original Airheads come in flat chewy taffy bars individually wrapped. Today you can get many different Airheads varieties from soft filled bites and big bars to Airheads Bites, Xtremes Belts, Airheads Xtremes Bites with a sour taste and even Airheads Sugar Free Gum.
Airheads come in many different flavours from cherry, orange, grape, watermelon to green apple, rainbowberry and bluest raspberry to name a few. We’re intrigued by Airheads White Mystery – can you tell what flavour it is?
More recently, AirHeads Paradise Blends was released, with the tropical flavours of Cherry Pineapple Blast, Raspberry Lemonade, Citrus Rush and Blue Hawaiian.
