Rock Candy Comes in Some Surprisingly Delicious Flavors & These Are the Best Ones to Try

For some, it’s Pop Rocks. For others, it’s Fun Dip. For us, it’s rock candy that really transports us back to afternoons as a kid trying every possible flavor of rock candy we could possibly get our hands on — from cotton candy, blue raspberry, and cherry to green apple, grape, and strawberry. They were all winners in our book.

Well, it turns out rock candy now comes in a hell of a lot more flavors than the usual aforementioned suspects. Turns out, rock candy comes in some surprisingly unique, delicious flavors. Think maple syrup, coffee and even champagne.

From sweet flavors, like cupcake and cake batter, to the more savory, like saffron, here are the flavors we bet you’ve never tried before — and must order immediately. The best part? Most are found on Amazon Prime.
