Halloween is a time of tricking and treating.
I’ll leave the tricking for another day, but have you given any
thought to the treats you plan to pass out to the neighborhood ghouls
and goblins on Halloween night? Whether you plan to hand out candy from
your doorstep or just want to take a sweet treat to the office for your
co-workers, consider dulce de mexicano. Mexican candy.
Buying Mexican Candy
The Internet makes it easy to get an assortment of treats and sweets.
Check out MexGrocer.com. There, candy lovers can indulge themselves
with affordable gift packs.
If the Internet won’t offer you the immediate fix you need for
your sweet tooth, or the sweet teeth of those Halloween party-goers,
then check your area for your local ethnically diverse grocery stores.
More and more chain grocers have cultural sections showcasing a range
of foods from different countries. The Farmers’ Market is an ideal
place to find Mexican candy, but the Mom and Pop Grocery Shop might offer
you even greater success of finding authentic dulce de mexicano.
