6. Gulo-gulo tareh (chocolate candy)
Originating from the city of Bukittinggi in West Sumatra, gulo-gulo means candy in the area's Minang language, while tareh means chocolate.
Gulo-gulo tareh is famous for their small two centimeter size and irregular shapes. Their ingredients are no less distictive, as they are made from real cane sugar and are coated in white sweet potato flour.
7. Gait sugar
Originating from the city of Samarinda in East Kalimantan province, the name of this sweet is derived from a local term for its mix of palm sugar and white sugar, that is then cooked until they become caramelized.
Also known as wood candy because its color and texture resemble chunks of wood, gait sugar is unique in the way they are made. These confections are made by getting pulled repeatedly until the caramel sugar becomes flexible. They are then printed in long and small shapes.
8. Mint candy
Mint candies come in more ways than one, from chips wrapped in paper, pieces in tin cans, to round shapes coated with sugar. Then as now, these candies are a favorite staple among travelers because they soothe the throat and relieve nausea during trips.
One well-known mint candy brand is Alba Pastiles, which is manufactured in Sukabumi, West Java. They can easily be found in gift shops in the province's Puncak area.
