Where can I buy American candy in the UK?

If you’re based in the UK, you have a couple of options. Some big-name supermarket chains sell tasty American snacks. Morrisons, for example, has a ‘World Foods’ section where you’ll find some tempting treats – Milk Duds, Reeses Puffs cereal and Twinkies.

There are some smaller shops on the high street that might be able to help, such as American Fizz and American Candy. These shops aren’t exactly common, though, so you might struggle to find one nearby.

Your best bet is to shop online. We’ve spotted plenty of collection boxes on Amazon that’ll satisfy your cravings and give you a taste of the states. Most of the popular picks are delightfully affordable, too.

How much does American candy in the UK cost?

If you’re in a major city you might spot an American-themed shop selling some goodies. But be warned that prices can be absurdly high, especially in London. It’s not fun at all paying £10 for a box of American cereal.

Prices for American candy in the UK can be absurdly high in-store. Try one of our recommended selection boxes instead.

The selection boxes we’ve rounded up below start under £10. You have loads of choices depending on what your go-to candy is. The best Amazon sellers offer you a choice between ‘candy boxes’ and ‘chocolate boxes’. You’ll also find loads of different cereal flavours online.
