The Gringa Tries Mexican Candy

Get ready for a post full of selfies!

AND THE FUN BEGINS!

grossThe first candy I tried was Chavalinas Dip. We got this in our bag of apples a few weeks ago, so I figure it is supposed to be eaten with them… it is kind of like a liquid chile. It  came in a package that reminded me of ketchup. Opening it was quite a challenge.selie

And then it splattered…all over my fingers. I was not expecting it to be a brown with a grimy texture. It oozed out the package so quickly! I had to act fast!

Verdict? Not my favorite. And my tongue looks like it is bleeding.

Next is Cremino! This one looked so delicious. Milk AND white chocolate? Heaven.IMG_5105IMG_5106

Ready to add marshmallow? I AM! Malvabon looked very strange. Remember when you were little and you’d hold the eraser of a pencil and as you shook it it would look like rubber? That’s just like Malvabon.

As we all know, I have been craving peanut butter. That is such a common theme on this blog. So I found something quite similar! Mazapan! This candy is very common here and a lot of people recognize this as a traditional Mexican Candy.

As I looked down at the pile to grab the next piece of candy I froze. I was petrified.

no way I have to try the chile/mango sucker. I’ve heard of this one. After the experience with the chile apple dip, I’m not sure about this one.

It was horrible but I had to finish it. Jose came in while I was suffering and took a few tastes because, believe it or not, this is his favorite candy. He says once you reach the mango part it’s the best! You get the best of both worlds. Spicy and then sweet.

How many licks does it take to get to the mango?

It took forever! And you gotta take water breaks. BUT THE MANGO WAS DELICIOUS! It tasted like a real mango! I guess it was worth the pain to get to the treasure.

Now for my favorite. Coconugs. I know this is a post about the first time trying them, but I couldn’t leave out my best friend coco. This little buddy has brought me so much joy in my time here. It is a special treat when I get to have one of the beautiful nuggets.

These are amazing!!
