    Need some help ladies. We would like to do a candy bar for the AHR. Would like to use candy authentic to Mexico. I tried to do a google search but got a lot of things like candy in the form of sombrero's (made in the USA of course).

    Any body have a favorite candy from MX that would be great in a candy bar? Looking for things that would be good for munching and that we can buy in large quantities. Thanks, Carla

    bubu lubu!!!!!

    Bubu Lubu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    theres another candy we are recently obsessed with, theyre a taffy candy with chile in it, they are sour and spicy at the same time, but i dont know that you can buy it in the US. i am having my FSIL track them down in mexico to bring them to us in july when she comes to visit. if i find out you can buy them here, i will let you know.

          it all depends on what you like. personally i have never been a big fan of mexican candy but i know in high school we used to eat the mango suckers with the chile on them.

          no nothing worth telling you about

          i do, however, HIGHLY recommend these
          Mafer Cacahuate Japones Sal LimĀ³n, 200 gram bag

          they arent candy but they are one of my favorite things EVER. whenever FI goes to MX or his fam comes here to visit, there are multiple bags of these brought with haha

          they're peanuts covered with a lime & salt flavored shell coating!

          theyre called cacahuates japoneses con limon

            Thats a great idea! Instead of a pure candy bar we could have a taste of mexico bar with candy, cookies and snacks.

            just FYI they HAVE to be the mafer brand, the other brands suck!

            i would do ANYTHING to get my hands on a bag of these right now. my FSIL is bringing me some in 24 days and i am dying waiting!
