There’s been a lot of trends that have developed over the course of the year, but there is no denying that freeze dried candy is one of those things that will become increasingly popular in 2023…but why?

Why Is Freeze Dried Candy So Popular?

Freeze dried candy has become increasingly popular due to its “unique texture, intense flavor, longer shelf life, and health benefits.” There are fruits and chocolate-covered snacks, which is perfect for any taste buds and convenient, because you can take it on the go! 

What is Freeze Dried Candy?

The freeze-drying process is unique – it removes all moisture from the candy by exposing it to extremely low temperatures, which makes the texture more light and crispy that is different from regular candy. 

The texture is what sets it apart from other snacks. You may even notice a porous surface on the candy, which allows rehydration upon contact with water or saliva. As you eat it, the flavor becomes more intense and it makes for a fun snack!

The Hype On Social Media

You could partially credit TikTok with this new food trend. 

A video from a candy account on TikTok shows a before & after of what it’s like to make freeze-dried skittles, and tons of people were fascinated by it.

The video was posted in May, but it has gained serious traction since then. However, it’s pretty challenging to find freeze-dried candy in Western New York.

….until now.
