'Pulparindo Extra Hot' is a popular Mexican candy produced by the confectionery company 'de la Rosa.' Unlike many North American candies, the bite-sized treast boast a fiery flavor that makes them ideal for those who enjoy their food on the spicy side.

Pulparindo Extra Hot is the extra-spicy version of de la Rosa's original Pulparindo treats. The candy itself is made from the pulp of the tamarind fruit, which is a popular ingredient in both Indian and Thai cuisine. The ingredient came to Mexico from India and has since become popular treat. Too sour to eat on its own, the pulp is flavored with a combination of salt, sugar and chilies. These seasonings give the pulp candy a multifaceted flavor profile that is sweet, salty, sour and spicy. Each candy comes individually wrapped, making it easy for consumers to share a box with others.

With its distinctly piquant flavor, the Mexican pulp candy is an ideal treat for those without a sweet tooth.
