vero elotes

vero elotes!

a spicy and sour mexican candy, very reminiscent of chinese sour plum candy.  pictured here in front of the decapitated birthday piñata from whence it was birthed.  apparently highly unpopular with damned fool drunken revellers but to be fair it is an unusual taste.  definitely don’t go in with typical sweet candy expectations because that’s not what this is all about.  the lollipop is covered with a sour chili powder, but the interior is a typical sweet lollipop type of hard candy. it works- the contrast between the sweet interior and the lingering sour chili taste exterior are definitely unique.  and as you make your way through the hard candy, having totally run out of chili powder, just as you’re getting sick of boring old lollipop flavour, wha-bam:

awwwwwwwwwwwwww yeah, secret interior sour chili dust reserve!

your piñata head may or may not suffer a similarly gradual rate of defenestration.

awesome.  don’t believe the haters.
