Pollito Asado Lollipops
A co-worker sent my husband home with a few Mexican lollipops which are shaped like pollitos, (little chickens.)
The brand name is ALVBRO, but I didn’t see anywhere on the label where it said what flavor the lollipops would be.
Being too curious for my own good, I closed my eyes and stuck it in my mouth, fully expecting a roast chicken-flavored lollipop, but I was pleasantly surprised. The lollipops are fruity tasting. (Later I looked it up on the internet and discovered that they’re described as “peach and pineapple” flavored.)
After sucking on it for a minute, you start to get to the spicy chili flavor which is common in so many of these Mexican lollipops, but this one I actually liked.
I’ve decided I would like to track down a bag of these to give out to the mini-Hershey-bar-eating trick-or-treating gringo children in my neighborhood for Halloween. The purpose is to spark their curiosity about other cultures, and though I’m not usually pessimistic, I can’t shake the feeling that my house is totally going to get toilet-papered this year. What they do to me will make what they do to the dental hygienist who gives away toothbrushes, look like child’s play.
