New candy! 🎉 New to me, anyway. This is Pulparindo hot tamarind candy!
It was another one of those candy boxes that are really a display, like the Mazapán de la Rosa Candy. This is actually from the same company.
Pulparindo is a mix of two Spanish words meaning pulp and tamarind. This (below) is tamarind, a very bitter fruit that grows in tropical places:
I haven’t had actual tamarind in a while, because the shells are always broken at the local stores. But if you’re a fan of sour candy, you’ll be a fan of this fruit!
The texture stays true to real tamarind ~ soft, a bit grainy, mushy. It has that bitter/sour bite and the “hot” part of it is very, very mild. The hotness is small enough that kids would enjoy it.
All in all, very interesting! Yummy, sour, and chewy 🙂
Okay, my husband says it tastes “like a fruit roll-up that fell on the floor of a Texas Roadhouse.” Oddly specific, but also strangely accurate! 😆
안녕! Bye! Ciao!
