What the deal is: You might be familiar with Haribo gummies -- they’re the ones that originated the idea of a gummy bear. Well, this German company, founded by Hans Riegel in Bonn (do you get it now?!), makes some even crazier stuff in the nation in which it was founded, and you can find a full list right here.

De la Rosa Pulparindo
What the deal is: Flavored with the sweet pulp of the tamarind plant (which you might've had before in the form of that dark sauce served with Indian food), Pulparindo has a bizarre layering of flavors: first it's salty, then it's sweet, and then it's hot. Violet Beauregarde would have a field day with this one, if she could roll all the way down to the border.
