I love candy almost as much as I love to travel. So you can imagine my excitement when the new Taste of Europe assortment from the online candy company Sugarfina landed on my desk. Red licorice bites from Finland! Cow-shaped marshmallows from Holland! Juicy sweet-and-sour peaches from Germany! My motto is the gummier, the better, but—as someone who was adventurous enough to eat alpaca in Peru—I even tried France’s fruity hard candies (thumb’s down) and Danish mocha beans (thumb’s up). The sweets are packaged in a Tiffany blue box—fitting, since I’d take these over a diamond any day. (Well, maybe…)
