Created in the 1980’s by Perfetti Van Melle, Airheads have become a world-famous American candy loved by all! Originally from Kentucky, the colourful sweet brand is now known and enjoyed all over the world.
Tangy and taffy-like, Airheads are made similar to the way Play-Doh is. As a result, the candy is shaped and squished. Then, it is moulded into the bars, bites, and gummies that we all know and love today!
They come in a large variety of flavours. To start with, you’ve got the classics such as strawberry, orange, and grape. However, they also do some more special flavours, like birthday cake, cotton candy, and fruit punch. They even have a couple of mystery flavours if you’re in the mood for a surprise!
We sell lots of Airheads products here at American Food Mart. Have a look and see which is your favourite!

Lemonheads, American classics made with real lemon juice, are sweet and sour lemon candies. Whether chewy or classic hard candy, these candies are small, tasty, and sweet! Enjoy fruity flavoured candies today! A classic sweet and sour lemon candy, with a soft shell and a hard candy core!
Salvatore Ferrara obtained the name Lemonhead after seeing his grandson, Salvatore II. It is said that Salvatore II was a forceps baby and that his head was lemon-shaped when he was born. Developed in 1962 by the same company that made Red Hots, this candy was also made via the cold panned method. As the candy is created, layer after layer of sugar and flavours are applied until the desired shape and size is reached.
This American classic is now available in many different flavours and variations.
Mike and Ike
By making fruit-flavoured kosher and gluten-free candies, Mike and Ike have found a huge market. The biggest seller of fruit-flavoured sweets in the US is Mike and Ike, which offers both sweet and sour flavours.
These oblong and fruit-flavoured chewy candies are available in different varieties, including cherry, strawberry, orange, and lemon. Popular varieties are Tropical Typhoon, Berry Blast and Jolly Joes. Each candy has 7 calories, 0 grams of fat, and approximately 1 gram of sugar.
Since 1940, the Just Born, Inc. company has manufactured these fruit-flavoured candies under the Mike and Ike brand. Despite many theories, it is unknown where the candy’s name came from. Original Mike and Ikes were all fruit flavoured, but have since been introduced in several varieties.
Mike and Ike have maintained their status as one of the leading candy companies in the world for over 70 years.
