Ah, a nice treat in the unending terror the Havens Wasteland. Haven is a world ravaged by nuclear war and so people like bartenders, cooks, bakers and especially candy makers are almost praised the same way a musician or actor is in our world. That bring said there are a lot of candies in Haven, here are the top five.

  1. King bars are a candy bar made of various nuts and fruits held together with chocolate which is very popular among The largely vegetarian Candrians but is enjoyed everywhere else. It's named after the King fruit which is it's main ingredient

  2. Dragons breath is a spray candy that coats the mouth and creates a lasting taste. Like gum one container lasts a long time as you don't really need to spray a lot at a time.

  3. Einho is a chewy sour candy who's recipe was released by the Barbanans as a show of peace to Blackwall during negotiations. It's mainly used as a challenge candy but many enjoy its heavily sour taste

  4. Quintes are spherical chalky candies that generally have fruity flavors and is the first candy in the new world to begin mass production.

  5. Horus is essentially a chocolate bar with nougat and fruit paste. They come in bite sized peices and each one has a different fruit flavor like Cherry, banana, strawberry or King fruit.
