Butterscotch hard candies are typically individually wrapped, translucent sometimes yellow coloured hard candies (butterscotch disks) with an artificial butterscotch flavour, which is dissimilar to actual butterscotch (Wikipedia, nd).
Butterscotch hard candies typically are not made with actual butterscotch, so consumers should carefully check the packaging of the candy for exact ingredients.
Butterscotch hard candies can be found in many candy and grocery stores worldwide, but are especially popular in Australia. They sometimes can be found topping deserts or blended into milkshakes or other drinks.
