Traditional Italian Candy- Popular Types & All Time Favourite Flavours!

Check out the list of candies and get amazed at the mind-blowing variations offered by Italian candies. They are usually categorized into 4 types- Italian hard candy, soft candies, chewing gums and the hard candies with fillings. Usually, hard candies are the most popular items of any Italian candy store, the other varieties are also quite loved by all. 

Some of the all-time favourite flavours include-

  • Licorice- Sweeter than sugar, the licorice flavoured Italian candies are loved by all. Usually, the black licorice one is the most popular but they are also available in combination with other flavours like cinnamon, cherry, strawberry and many more.

  • Anise- Very similar to licorice, anise candies can be best described as fusion. Having an overpowering sugary yet mildly spicy flavour, these candies are delightfully aromatic and have a pleasant essence.

  • Caramel- With a light creamy texture, caramel is also an all-season favourite. You will get Italian hard candy with caramel fillings or chewy chunks of soft caramel candies at any confectionary of Bella Italia. The fine blend of sweet and salty is what makes it unique. 

There are also other flavours like hazelnut, peppermint, chocolate and many more that are enjoyed by everyone occasionally. The herbal flavoured Italian candies with eucalyptus essence and sugar-coated bitter herbs also deserve special mention.

How to Make Traditional Black Licorice Candy at Home?

Be it birthdays, Christmas or Halloween, good old-fashioned licorice candies will never be out of the trends. Follow the easy recipe to infuse some sugary goodness in the celebration- 


  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup of dark corn syrup
  • 3 cups of wheat flour
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup of milk (condensed)
  • 1/4 cup of blackstrap molasses 
  • Black food colouring

    Steps to Prepare

  • Take a heavy-bottomed saucepan and put the butter, sugar, syrup, milk and molasses in it to boil at medium heat.  Add salt to taste. 
  • After a few minutes, turn off the heat and let it simmer.
  • Meanwhile, stir in the flour carefully into the mixture. 
  • As soon as the constituency thickens a bit, drop the food colouring in appropriate portions. 
  • Take a square-loaf pan and grease it with butter. 
  • Line it with parchment paper and pour the mixture in it. 
  • Keep it in the deep-freezer for about 45 mins to an hour to let it chill completely. 
  • After it solidifies fully, invert the pan into a cutting board and remove the parchment paper. Cut it into thin ropes and twist it to bring the traditional licorice candy shape. 
  • Chill it in the refrigerator again for half an hour in baking sheets. 
  • Additionally, you can also keep it in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week to let it set fully. 
  • Before serving, make sure to let it soften at room temperature at first. You can also sprinkle some icing sugar on top to make it look appealing.
