Wordless Wednesday: Moritas

If you haven’t noticed, I have a bit of an obsession with Mexican candies. Here’s another one of my finds, Moritas. They’re soft, sour gomitas that taste like blackberries and strawberries. They’re not the same kind of chewy consistency you’d expect from gummy bears, and they have a sort of crunchy, sweet, flavored coating of sugar dots. I haven’t had these in Mexico, but I’ve eaten something similar there and figured I’d like these too. My instincts usually don’t steer me wrong, and this was no exception–I’m headed back to the store this week to pick up another little bag.

Wordless Wednesday: Dulces

José returned this past Sunday from his trip to Mexico City for Semana Santa. Among the presents he brought home for me… ¡Dulces! In pretty much any taquería in Mexico, you’ll get some kind of candies delivered with your check. Some of my favorites include the dulces de tamarindo (tamarind and chile-flavored candy) and the paletas picosas (spicy and sweet lollipops) pictured above from El Charco de Las Ranas, El Califa and El Fogoncito.
