If you have tried Mexican candy and sweets from other countries, such as American candies, you surely noticed the difference – Mexican candy is creamier, but the texture is less smooth and the taste is more refreshing, more exotic, in some cases even strange for the American palate, but always delicious. The secret is in the special ingredients – here are some used to make these special, tasty sweets:

  • Tamarind – the pod-like fruit of a leguminous tree has edible pulp that tastes sour and tangy. The pulp is also used for adding texture to the sweets;
  • Chile peppers – the varieties used in candy have very mild heat or no heat at all, allowing candy makers to make the most of the refreshing taste that becomes more conspicuous without the heat. However, those who like spicy sweets can find candy varieties that are coated with hot chilly on the outside – a very special experience, indeed;
  • More salt – Mexican candy is special because it is like a cavalcade of tastes that includes a salty taste as well;
  • Cocoa – another typical ingredient in Mexican candy, cocoa also adds special flavor to these exotic sweets.

The above special ingredients are used not only in candies, but in chewing gum, lollipops, ice cream, chocolate bars and other sweets as well, making them all very different from American sweets.  Creager Mercantile has made it easy to buy wholesale candy Denver business owners conclude.  It’s best to buy wholesale if you can, that way everyone benefits.
