Carbon De Reyes
Walking by this candy store yesterday, we saw something that made us stop and wonder. Chunks of coal were in a box, being advertised as “Carbon de Reyes”. Of course, we had to try it.
Maybe I’m missing out on something but this piece of coal looks more like a punishment than candy. Maybe it’s what bad kids get for Christmas? Wonder how it tastes? Well, “sugar” is the word which describes it best. And you really have to scrape with your teeth to nibble off little pieces of it. Kind of like a mouse.
Not really not my kind of candy, though it does come in different colors:
Can anyone fill us in on what this is about?
