Sweet and Sour Mexican Candy
Mexican candy can be extreme, that’s what drives people wild making them come back for more. Their taste buds demands more, making these candy very popular. Sweet and sour can be addicting, once you start eating those treats, you want more. It could be that the sour and sweet combination is a fiesta in your mouth. They can be mildly spicy, really spicy, really salty, really sour, really lemony and really sweet; either way people love them and want more. Companies keep coming up with different types of candy, but the Mexican candies we all enjoyed in our childhood are still the same, and they still manage to take us back to those afternoons when we got together with our neighborhood friends for a friendly game of soccer, as we ate and shared with them those same candies that our children enjoy today.
The Mexican candies we used to enjoy as children are still here today, but now we have newer variations, more heat variations, colors and flavors. MexGrocer.com brings you all the sweet, sour and spicy Mexican candies you used to have growing up so you can share them with your kids while taking a trip down memory lane and even discover new candies and flavors you haven’t eaten before. There’s tamarind flavored or sweet and sour alone, but sweet and sour are not just famous in Mexico they are popular in the U.S too, but what gives it its delicious sour flavor? It’s due to the combinations of acids, that you can buy as a liquid or powder, but can’t be reproduced at home because it needs ingredients, only manufacturers have. Why do kids love them? There’s no right or wrong answer, kids love these acidic candies that make your face pucker, and they like them because they like to compete amongst their friends to see who can withstand it the most and because of its sweet reward after the sour taste is gone. Point is kids love them. In Mexico, candies get their sour taste from the tamarind, and even though we have many brands of sour candy like in the U.S., tamarind is the base to most Mexican candy. It’s mostly combined with chile to give the candy the spicy sour flavor we all love. Mexicans like things spicy, so the majority of the candy made with chili is very hot, but we have mild candies too for those who can’t stand the heat and have to run to get a glass of water.
Pulparindo is one of Mexico’s most popular candies amongst people of all ages. This sweet treat from La Rosa has two presentations: the original pulparindo with a yellow wrapper is made with salt and chile and the heat is mild, while Pulparindo’s new flavor extra hot and salted comes in a red wrapper, as the name suggests it’s spicier than the original. Both combine the three exotic flavors we all love: sweet, spicy and sour. However Pulparindo Extra hot won’t make your mouth pucker like warheads, but its extra chile will make your tongue very hot, a flavor suited for all those chili lovers out there.
