De La Rosa
Where have these things been all my life? They're like little creamy hockey pucks that melt in your mouth and tastes kind of like the peanut butter inside of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. That's far from a perfect description. It's just one of those things that you have to taste for yourself. I can't even begin to put into words how amazing they are. Seriously, from the first bite, this made my top 5 favorite candy list.
One of the things that I love about El Paso is how chill folks are around here compared to Northeast PA. There's just a relaxed vibe here. For example, I got these two Mazapán while I was at Applebee's having a few drinks with Christian. A woman came into the restaurant and was offering them for sale, along with a few other snacks and flowers and things. She wasn't pushy or anything like that; just a nicely dressed older woman trying to make a few bucks by selling snacks at the bar.
I just can't picture that happening back home without a heightened level of aggression. Hell, you can't walk through the Wyoming Valley Mall without being stalked by a shouting salesperson from a kiosk who is trying to squirt hand cream on you or clean your glasses. In the tri-state area, you keep your eyes forward and tune people out, but in El Paso, just about everyone is just so friendly to be around that even a sales pitch is a pleasant experience.
