Mexican candy makes me giddy. I don’t know if it’s the anticipation of a sugar rush or the explosion of flavors I know I’m about to experience. Mexican candied fruit which is also known as “Fruta Cristalizada” in Spanish, has a hard sugary outer exterior and a soft fruit center. The candied fruit is made with real fruit of course, many of them are still in their original shape. When I was a little girl there use to be a Mexican candy right down the street from my house. I would venture over there on a weekly basis, and buy a piece or two from the little old woman that ran the shop. I don’t think the shop was open to the public, but she knew I was curious about the candied fruit she was making so she would allow me to stick around and watch her in action. I was hooked at a young age. Mexican candy will forever be one of my favorite types of confections, and one people should definitely experience.
