Pelon Pelo Rico
The treat's name loosely translates in English to "Yummy Hair Baldie", because the candy is squeezed out of a tube through a grate, producing a Medusa-like effect.
It comes in regular, sour lime, watermelon, and extra spicy flavors. Ingredients include sugar, water, glucose, chili powder, citric acid, xanthan gum, and tamarind extract.
Pelon Pelo Rico is inexpensive, being sold for approximately US$0.50 at corner stores, and is commonly found in Mexican-owned stores and markets.
It is enjoyed in both Mexico and the U.S.
