44. mexican candy

My cousin brought me to a flea market because I told him I wanted to buy a specific mexican candy.
Since San Diego is near the Mexican border, I expected that I would find my Mexican candy here.

This Candy

When I was younger, my other cousin introduced me to this spicy and sour chili mix. We bought this Lucas candy back in Mexico, 10yrs ago. My bestfriend and I have been talking about this all the time back in Manila and recalling our weird childhood cravings for unusual food. We end up asking ourselves if Lucas was really a candy or really rather a seasoning for cooking or something. lol

We asked my Mexican student once,  if she knew what Lucas was. She said "Lucas??? we just made that last night!" I asked, "is it a candy? or seasoning?". I really cannot recall anymore what she said, but she did say she was going to Mexico soon and my bestfriend & I told her to bring us back some Lucas. Well, of course... she didn't haha... But we WERE serious you know.

I tried searching it on the net and used the keywords "Lucas Mexican Candy". Apparently it is listed under candy. And when I got to the flea market there was a whole stall full of assorted mexican candies!!! and lucas was one of them... only they had changed the packaging. And it had more flavors.

And damn for a little dude, it was pretty expensive. I was thinking they would sell it wholesale. I wanted to buy alot!! But I feared I might develop kidney stone in the long run... lol. Better control thy self.




I also bought this Tamarind soft candy which me and my bestfriend referred to as the "candy with the hair". We really couldn't recall what the name was but I finally found it again. I showed the pictures to my bestfriend and what I bought for her and she just wanted me to come back home soon! She claimed her mouth was watering already. I wish I could find these in Walmart, maybe they're selling whole sale. That flee market was just a total rip off. lol.

  1. Found your page upon looking for more images of Lucas.
    I have a whole bunch of candy at home, but no the original Lucas candy.

    I am using the Lucas as well as other Mexican candies to create artwork.
    The show is going to be in Houston, but if you care to read about the show (pics we posted closer to date)...
