If you’re like me, you need horchata more than you’re able to have it. The rare time you see the agua frescas sign or the percolating white box of the good stuff at the counter of any good Mexican food place, is like pure excitement.. When I saw these horchata flavored candies I was initially pretty skeptical, I wasn’t sure if it was like a caramel or licorice consistency.. or if the flavor would be any good.
They were spot on horchata, like I used to get in my fav Santa Ana taqueria, and chewy like Australian licorice. Going back to Bed Bath & Beyond to stock up, because I doubt I will ever be lucky enough to run across these again.
