Mexican Candy: A Poop Theme

As I mentioned previously, The Connection brought me a bag of crazy candy from Mexico, which was incredibly thoughtful. The only thing was, I just couldn't bring myself to try it because I was afraid of swine flu tasting them. So I did the next best thing: I passed it all onto the Baron.

Pelon Pelon Rico:
Gretl says:
"Looks like something that comes out of the Sugar Baby's diaper. It's really bad, EW!"
The Baron says: "Really hard to dispense. It may be date or fig. Doesn't have a very good texture. Salty and gritty."
Limon 7: (not pictured)
Gretl says: "Smells like tires and I'm afraid to eat it, so I'll give it to Daddy to try it."
The Baron: "It tastes like Margarita salt mix for the rim of the glass. I'm not sure it's supposed to be candy?!"
The Baron: "Looks like dog poop. You put this in your mouth? I'm not sure I want to play this game anymore!" (With this review, no one else in the family would try it.)
Veto Elotes
The Baron: "Gag, cough. Very salty. Sorry, can't get past the salt." He spit it out and washed his mouth out with water. "This is the lollipop that you give your kids when they are bad!" After the gag and the cough, no one else would try it.
The Baron: "It's like
cake icing, but with a thicker texture." He liked this one and didn't want to share.
Mini cow tales (not pictured, because these weren't supposed to be a sample. I had included a box of Mini Cow Tales for Memaw, who likes Bullseyes, which are similar.)
The Baron: "They don't have enough white stuff in them."

There you have it. Sorry Mexico. You may have good food, but your candy is really scary and gross leaves something to be desired.

Pelon Pelo Rico, Rellerindos, and, generally speaking, any Mexican candy that looks like poop, are tamarind flavored.

Okay, I won't bring you candy from Mexico...I can find LOTS of it here in Florida!

You guys should try a new Mexican candy that is being sold in California, its soooooo good. It´s a 100% dehidrated fruit lollipop called FRULER, it has a little bit of Chile on top, just delicious.

It comes in Mango, Pineapple, Strawberry, Tamarind and Peach flavours. I think they´ll be sold all over California.

Yum I am eating a Rellerindo right now. Rellerindos are extremely rich in citric acid, malic acid and ascorbic acid because they are filled with tamarind paste. People trying to kick the sugar habit need to keep them on hand.
