Rosary Royals love all kinds of salty and sugary snacks. However, there are many different types of snacks from other countries that Royals have not tried yet.

The Royal Reporter decided to bring some Mexican cultural candies and snacks to fellow Royals to see their reactions.

These sweet treats are a milky and sugary delight!

A few of the selection of treats Royals got to choose from were Oblea Rellena de Cejeta, Goat Milk Candy, and Doritos Sabor Ranchero Con Chile y Limon. The Royal Reporter asked everyone the following questions: “How does this candy differ from American candy?’ and “Did you like it? Why or why not?”

Some of the people that chose the Oblea Rellena de Cajeta were juniors Allison Armanino and Nicky Angle. This is a sweet with caramel in between two wafers, which is really popular among little children in Mexico.

Allison told The Royal Reporter, “It is a lot sweeter and thicker than any candy I’ve had. I really liked it. It’s thin wafer layer on the outside and caramel on the inside is really divine”. Nicky said, “Its not as colorful as the American candy I’ve had, but it has a real caramel flavor. Yeah, I like it because it was very decadent and different from other candies I’ve had.”

The next candy Royals chose were the Goat Milk Candies, which Mr. Stegink, junior Kim Burke, and freshmen Taylor Bastidas and Sandra Ragle tried. These are very popular in Mexico and are taffy-like candies.

Kim, Taylor, and Sandra all said variations of, “It’s really good and unique.” Taylor noticed, “The way it is wrapped is different from regular American candy.” Mr. Stegink, on the other hand, had a different reaction: “It is grainy… not my kind of candy. I don’t like it because the texture is weird.” Even though Mr. Stegink didn’t like this particular candy, he said, “I’m still open to trying other cultural snacks!”

A Rosary girl tries a Mexican treat, Doritos Sabor Ranchero Con Chile y Limon, for the first time!

The last snack The Royal Reporter gave to people were the Doritos Sabor Ranchero Con Chile y Limon. Juniors Melissa Wisnieski and Holly Middleton decided to try these Mexican chips. These are common snacks that are sold by elote karts. They when eaten plain they taste like unseasoned Doritos but you can add chile and/or lemon.

Melissa pointed out, “You can’t find American snacks that are usually this spicy,” while Holly said, “It tastes almost more real, like it doesn’t have as many preservatives.” They both enjoyed the chips because of their interesting shape.

These Royals and Mr. Stegink went out of their comfort zone by trying something new and culturally different.
