Kranky K

La otra semana encontré algo nuevo en el mercado latino. A lado de mis queridos Bubu Lubus había un nuevo dulce de la misma compañía (Ricolino) que se llama “Kranky K.”

Aparentemente Kranky K son confleis cubiertas en chocolate y por solo 25 centavos, me decidí probarlos. Estaban buenos pero no super impresionantes, y definitivamente no son tan adictos como su primo el Bubu Lubu, a pesar de el hecho que el nombre “Kranky K” se escucha como una nueva droga de la calle.


The other week I found something new at the Latino market. Next to my beloved Bubu Lubus was a new candy by the same company (Ricolino) that’s called “Kranky K.”

Apparently Kranky K are cornflakes covered in chocolate and for only 25 cents, I decided to try them. They were good but not super impressive, and they’re definitely not addictive like their cousin, Bubu Lubu, despite the fact that “Kranky K” sounds like a new street drug to me.

  1. I’m soooo happy they sell these in the States now, they’re one of my childhood favorites! Last time I was in Mexico they had the dark chocolate version, way better than the original ones

    • LOL, whenever I see a “new” Mexican candy or product you always end up telling me it’s old news… I need to start saying “new to me” or “new to the United States” jajaja

      Latino market didn’t have the dark chocolate version, but then again, I still have yet to try a Bubu Lubu de piña as well :p

      • jaja Sorry!!! :S
        I grew up in Mexico so I was surrounded by all this awesome candy :P
        It’s really interesting how it’s making its way into the US market… I can now buy my Ricolino products at Target!! I remember when we barely moved here I had to either buy old candy from the Latino markets or wait until someone made a trip to Tijuana to order some. Now they’re everywhere!!!!!!!!

  2. haha… We’ve been eating Krankys forever and it never occurred to me that it sounds like a street drug. It does! My kids will think it is hilarious. I’ll never be able to buy them again without thinking of that!

  3. I “stole” a pack if these from the rents…i wasn’t impressed either. To me they were sweet but lacked a true chocolate flavor. My kids loved them though :)
