After sampling some chili-infused lollipops at a Mexican grocery store near his place… Ben has developed a bit of a jones. Today, his package of Mexican candies that he ordered arrived, and he was kind enough to share some of the goodness with everyone.
The lollipop I had (mango) was good, but ended up being almost too strong for me. I did try one piece of something… that was primarily tamarind? It was brown, and had seeds, and tasted like a squishy, sour prune. Almost everyone in the office tried it, and had a similar reaction (namely, spit it out shortly after biting into it).
Some fun stuff though. We had a blast sampling the candy (although I wasn’t nearly as adventurous as Ben was).
Case in point, Ben’s exploration of what was called Salsaghetti.
