NBA All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo is known for his skills on the court, but ever since he partnered with Candy Funhouse, he’s been embracing his candy-crazed side! Giannis has a pretty long list of favourite candies, but today we’re just going to name a few of his go-to candies!
Giannis LOVES his sour candies — pretty much anything sour under the sun — but the Sour Patch Kids Watermelon candy is a standout! The Maynards sour candy is a watermelon shaped gummy with a face-twisting sour sugar coating. These packs of watermelon candy are perfect for sharing with friends and seeing who’s more affected by the sourness of these delicious treats!
Mentos are great for refreshing your senses and getting a wonderful treat in the process. Mentos come in a variety of sweet & satisfying flavours, but the one that stands out the most to Giannis is Fanta Mentos! These orange soda flavoured Mentos are chewy mints that make snacking enjoyable and fantastically fizzy! Great for on-the-go snacking, the Fanta Mentos are the perfect companion to help sweeten any moment!
Known for their delicious red licorice, Red Vines are a staple in Giannis’ candy stash! These are the ultimate movie snack if you can’t seem to get enough of sweet & tangy flavour combos. Red Vines are super soft and chewable licorice, giving them a delicate texture that makes it easy to snack on. We also love Red Vines but with a co-sign from the Greek Freak, you know you can’t go wrong with this red licorice.
Kinder chocolate is the epitome of “nostalgic candy”, and as one of Giannis’ first chocolates he tried when he moved to America, this is a very sentimental candy for him. The Kinder Bueno has a hazelnut cream filling encased by wafer sticks and coated in a heavenly Kinder milk chocolate that can make any chocolate lover melt with satisfaction! The irresistible creamy filling is a game changer and fortunately for us, the Bueno bar comes in a pack of two!
You may not have the same ball skills as an NBA superstar, but you can start snacking like one!! With the Giannis Fun Box, you can get your hands on ALL of his top-rated candies! Trust us, Giannis knows what he’s talking about when it comes to candy!
Were you surprised by any of these snacks being Giannis’ fav? Is there one candy in particular you want to try for yourself?
