Taste the finest Mexican candy and experience the mouth watering sensation of  “sweet and chili”. This is the unique taste of Mexico’s sweets. It’s a party waiting to happen! And now we will see some kinds of the most popular Mexican candies.

Candy Lollipops

These are hard candy “chili pops” with sweet and spicy flavors in different fruit figures and flavors, like could watermelon, mango, between others. Some examples of candy lollipops are:

*Vero Mango – A lollipop with the figure of a mango, with the flavor of chili and sweet mango.
*Vero Sandia – A watermelon flavored lollipop where you will taste a chilli lollipop.
*Paleta Tama Roca – A lollipop of tamarindo, with a circular figure. The best you can find with the sweet taste of tamarindo.

*Mazapan (Marzipan): It’s a peanut candy that it’s all made with sugar. It’s great for the whims you may have some days.

If you some day come to Mexico, don’t forget to taste some candies and be sure to take some home where you can still enjoy the Mexican taste. These candies are not expensive and are recognized in the whole world. I hope this information works for you, and I trust some day you will come and taste some traditional Mexican candies.

    I would love to try some of those candies. Our candies don’t usually have any spicy ingredients. They’re mostly made of sugar.

    After reading about the few candies in your country they sound delicious. My favorite candy is mango chile powder! Some of the candies we have in the U.S. are chocolate, bubble gum suckers, laffy taffy, gummy bears. I will be visiting mexico in a few years to buy hundreds of chile powders.

  3. Berkley Says:
