Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food. Over the next few weeks with the run up to Christmas, we thought we would do a special edition for this article as there are so much fun things to talk about at this time of year!
If you are looking for something that is a sweet that is a bit out the ordinary then this week we explore in one of the bizarre ones that is available in the states. It is funny when I came across these sweets it reminded me of a housemate at university who would drink gravy like it was a soup off of his plate whenever we had a roast dinner!
In America there is something called Gravy Candies – these are brown and white striped sweets that, you guessed it, taste like gravy. The style of sweet id meant to represent an old fashioned candy whilst also sort of remixing it with these new and unusual flavours.
The Sweets have been made by Archie Mcphee who are known for making unusual snacks in Seattle. McPhee have also made food snacks such as Rotisserie Chicken Candy Canes, Dill Pickle Mint and Bacon Gumballs.
You can purchase the gravy candy in a in from the McPhee website for $5.95 however sadly the website does admit that the candy does not come with mashed potato flavoured candy.
