It’s not fair to blame the masses for the faults of a few. Like, you can’t say every Iranian is a numbnut; just the dumdum leaders who use religion to hide behind a fascist regime stuck in the middle ages. Similarly, just because there seems to be an inordinate amount of crap candy out of Mexico, it’s not like there is no good Mexican candy. On the contrary, we found a few items worth purchasing again. Unfortunately, these Serpentinas aren’t them. Perhaps if I had grown up on these…? M A Ybe if I had been force-fed these as a chillun I could find some semblance of candy satisfaction? As it stands, I couldn’t be more putrified.
Serpentinas are terrible. They are inedible. I put them in my mouth and immediately relegated them to the spitter pile. Wanna re-enactment? Watch any Seinfeld episode where Kramer is lauding some kind of fruit and then tries some inferior piece that Jerry bought and immediately spits it out and says, “no – that’s no good.” Insert me as Kramer. Done.
And this whole ‘is it fig is it Tamarind what is Tamarind anyway but jesus this is just ridiculous looking’ candy is played out in my book. These Serpentinas are thin, rolled up wagon wheels that if you so chose to eat, I think you’d then peel off and put in your mouth. I just took a bite of the whole wheel since they are so sticky and jelly-ish and such a strange brown that I didn’t really want to touch them more then a quick bite. I didn’t want remnants all over my fingers.
Simply: bad. Just awful. If you happen to come upon them in some international foods aisle, I suggest you slowly turn back around and slink away.
