Is it really sour? (LAPIS' EYE Candy)

Eye Candy, is this weekend’s LaPiS’s theme. I know I know, I am a bit late posting my entry. I wanted to do it yesterday (Sunday) but I really got caught up with all the preparation for my husband’s US trip (which was today, he’s left at 6am) that it was already late when I realized that I wasn’t able to do my La.Pi.S entry. But as they say, better late than never.
So here I am with my own interpretation of the theme.

As a child, I was not really fond of sour candies. But during my teen years when I realized that I have motion sickness and was told that sucking on sour candies help alleviate the feeling of nausea, thus sucking on them I started to. And by golly it worked for me then, and is still working until now! Thus, I now eat sour candies with gusto. I guess my palate got used to it. And this is the latest sour candy that I’m addicted to.

Every week, I buy 2 little jars of this yummy sour-sweet-and spicy tamarind candy. On the photo was imported from Thailand and kind of adjusted to European taste (which isn’t too sour and hot) I kind of like more what I usually buy in Thailand (when I was living there) which was really sour (I’m salivating just recalling the taste *lol* ) and pretty hot!! Each tamarind ball would be covered with chili flakes unlike this imported ones.

But better than not tasting my favorite tamarind candies, right?

    first time i’ve tried it in Thailand, nanibago ako pero it’s good naman talaga. Sanay lang ako sa Pinoy sampalok na mas maasim.
