The Country: Mexico The Sweet: Ates en Cubitos Some of the most popular confections in Mexico are fruit pastes formed into small cubes. These candies are made from native fruits like guava, peach, and mango — slow-cooked and sprinkled with sugar. Sometimes the cubes are coated with chili powder for an eye-opening mix of sweet, spicy, and sour.
A favorite of E.T., Reese's Pieces are a fun candy with a crunchy shell similar to M&Ms. The big difference is the inside, as these yellow, orange and brown treats are filled with peanut-buttery goodness.
