Happy dieciséis de Septiembre—Mexico’s Independence Day! Because everyone else is gonna do tequila shots and eat tacos, I’ve decided to take this opportunity to highlight something else that my people love: spicy, tangy candy that makes your lips pucker and your acid reflux wind up to kick you in the esophagus all night! I have two words for you: WORTH IT! Imagine a humdrum third-grade lunch with a tame Fruit Rollup that can’t even get you the kind of tradeability you need to score your best friend’s Twinkie. Remember those lunches? I know I do because they tasted just like disappointment. But let’s reimagine this whole thing. You open your lunchbox and go against Gramma’s advice and count your blessings: 1. Capri Sun, 2. peanut butter and jelly sandwich, 3. small bag of potato chips, and OH! OH! OH! WHAT’S THIS?! Mom’s thrown in a little something extra extra—a bag of sweet, sweet glory: 4. @alamocandyco Picositas Belts™️! And what exactly is a Picosita Belt? She’s a length of the most tender, handpicked strawberry fruit leather who has lovingly bathed herself in a citric pool and adorned herself in the food equivalent of diamonds: sparkly chili powder! There are few things you wouldn’t trade for a lunchbox snack cake, but Picositas Belts are the biggest sack-lunch win. So keep your tequila shots and your tacos. I’m going in for the kill with these pucker-worthy sweet and tangy treats! 😘🍓🔥💥
TLDR: San Antonio’s spicy, tangy sweet thing to beat other fruit candies. Found at @heb.
