Pulparindo is the trade name of a Mexican candy produced by de la Rosa. The candy is made from the pulp of the tamarind fruit, and is flavored with sugar, salt, and chili peppers, making it simultaneously tart, sweet, salty, and spicy. The "extra picante" variation is especially spicy.
In July 2007, the California Department of Public Health announced they had conducted testing on Pulparindo candy showing it contained between 0.12 and 0.18 ppm of lead. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), this level of lead is within acceptable limits for candy that is not frequently eaten by small children.
