30 Days of New Foods: Day 12: Rebanaditas Lollipop

This reminds me of a story someone told me about her trip to Pakistan. After a very spicy meal, she was grateful to see fruit served for dessert, but then horrified when she realized that even the fruit was dowsed with chili powder.

This lollipop, made in Mexico, is basically watermelon flavored candy, coated with salt and chili powder.




So you lick it and get the salt and chili flavor, then eventually you get the watermelon flavor.

I think this would have been decent, but for one thing: stale chili powder. It smelled musty and old and that made it pretty unpalatable for me. My husband was not impressed either. Our child, however, likes them. And anything that gets her experimenting with spicy food is worth trying.
