Review for Pelon Pelo Rico Candy
September 1, 2010
I ordered this candy not long ago, hoping to once again experience the "good old days" of my youth in Riverside, CA, USA. I could not find ingredient lists for any of these candies (on MexGrocer.com), but I figured that the American obsession with corn syrup and the like was just that--American. Unfortunately, upon receiving the parcel, I found that the ingredients on the label did, in fact, list corn syrup, which I am allergic to (as well as all other corn products). I tried a few bites just to gratify my sense of "I bought this and I'm gonna enjoy it!" but ultimately I had to give it all away because it made me sick (with allergic reactions). In summary, very tasty stuff, but I wish MexGrocer had said what was in it before I made the purchase.
