Do you enjoy experiencing culinary flavors from other countries?
 Have you ever tasted candy from Mexico?  It's a whole new world of sweet and spicy flavors.  From yummy chocolate covered wafer cookies to the more daring mango flavored lollipops covered with chili powder, it's a whole new experience.

A fun way to experience the flavors is thru Mexican Candy Box, a monthly subscription service that will send you a gift box full of candy.  You can choose to try the Sweet & Spicy Mix, the Sweet Only box, or the Spicy Only box.  And, it comes in three sizes, Solo (individual), Amigo (friend), and Familia (family).  

If you're not ready to try the monthly subscription box service, you can order just a single box for the month.  The single box is also a good way to send a gift to a friend.

Do you have any particular candy favorites?
Experience the sweet and spicy flavors of candy from Mexico each month - no travel required.
