We recently came across this video (courtesy of Buzzfeed) and thought it was really funny. It shows a few Americans trying some traditional Mexican candies for the first time and their reactions to them. Obviously, you can't expect everyone to like everything, so some of the reactions are pretty funny for those of us who have tried them and know what to expect. Despite the initial reactions, some of these folks actually end up liking the snacks (you have to be open to try new things!).
You can find the candies shown in the video by shopping our Traditional Candy section. Here is a quick list too:
- Paleta Payaso
- Pulparindo Extra Hot (if this is your first time, we recommend you try first the classic version of Pulparindo, which is milder)
- Duvalin (coming soon!)
- Zumba Pica Acidin Chili Powder (The video shows Lucas, but this is just as good. There is also a hotter version, but we recommend you try Acidin first)
- Vero Mango lollipops (There is also the Vero Elote version, which actually tastes like strawberries).
If you haven't, you should try them all. They are really good!
