Best Mexican Candy Store - 2012
Las Delicias Mexicanas
If you're looking for tasty candy to fill a piñata, your first and only stop should be Las Delicias Mexicanas. But even if a piñata isn't involved, Las Delicias should be a regular stop for dulce lovers. The shop regularly imports candy directly from Mexico under the Las Delicias label. While the shop offers plenty of chocolate, nut-based candy and spicy treats, it specializes in pumpkin and sweet-potato creations, including caramelized and white pumpkin. The treats, sitting heaped up in large baskets, look like rough-cut gemstones. Among the novelty items Las Delicias carries are paletotas (oversize lollipops) and a few adults-only products, including tequila and Kahlúa-based candy.
