The World's Nastiest Candy?
Could this be the nastiest tasting candy in the world? I really don't know. Someone at my office brought a bunch of these to work, and everyone is saying they are horrible. The description is that they taste like sweat mixed with raw sewage with scrapings from the gutters of Manhattan added in. With all that talk, I am very afraid to open it up and try it.
The label describes this confection from Mexico as a lollipop with four layers of chili flavor wrapped around a mango flavored gum in the middle. However, given the description of those who have tried it, there is nothing that tastes like chili here. This may be like the Tootsie Roll Pop...no one will ever know how many licks it takes to get to the center; only this time it is because of the bad taste it has.
The label says that the Mexican candy company that makes this little gem is owned by Pepsico, Inc. Now, I do enjoy many Mexican foods, including some of the sugar pralines that are made there. Yet, despite my adventuresome nature regarding foods, I cannot bring myself to try the Rockaleta.
Other nasty candies I never will try include those gross Jelly Belly flavors of jelly beans, such as vomit, earwax, and boogers. Still, the people I work with claim that those are better by far than the Rockaleta. I guess I will never know.
