Candy is controversial. Scouring the globe in search of the sweet stuff reveals just how different our palates are — and how much we have in common. By MARY H. K. CHOI OCT. 24, 2018 Photo Illustration by MASSIMO GAMMACURTA Whenever I land in a new country, before I’ve even left the arrivals hall, my mind turns to shopping. Not the boutiques or cosmetics counters, no duty-free sunglasses and designer perfumes for me. No, the pressing calculus as I make my way to baggage claim is driven by drugstores, kiosks, supermarkets and vending machines. In a new port of call, I like to know what sort of candy I’m dealing with. As with breakfast foods, I believe candy is often tastier the less expensive it is. I like my confections approachable. Low-rent. Basic. Shot through with … [Read more...] about These Are the World’s Best Candies. Want to Fight About It?

The new piece in Houston is strikingly similar to the beloved Bean—and Chicago residents have noticed.
