So what is in the bag?
Each bag contains 6 pieces of sweet or spicy Mexican candy. Each bag is different.
Candy from the most popular SPICY and SWEET candies and popular brands of dulces from Mexico. Candy brands that could be included are:
Rockaleta lollipop, Mazapan (contains peanuts), Pelon Pelo Rico, Pulparindo Yellow, Red XtraHot, Mango and Watermelon, Rico Pepino lollipop, Skwinkles Salsaguetti, Duvalin, Rebanaditas Sandia, Vero Mango, Elotes Lollipops, and more. Spicy candy might have a layer of mild spicy chili powder and fruit flavors awaiting below.
A now-popular ingredient in Mexican candy, originally from Asia, is tamarind. This sour fruit is particularly appreciated in candies that mix it with sugar and chili peppers to create an explosion of flavors all in one candy.
