Had my eye on this during all of ZWT8's trip to Mexico! If you love mango, you will love this! The Chamoy sauce was a good, slightly spicy counterpoint to the somewhat tart mango. The Pulparindo candy is an unusual combination of extra hot and salted tamarind pulp with a lemon edge (ingredients: sugar, tamarind pulp, corn syrup, iodized salt, citric acid, ground chilis mixture and sodium benzoate). It is pliable and easily diced. I found the candy at a Mexican grocer (who also had dried tamarind seeds so I could possibly have made some taffy-like candy from that). (Note: in 2007, the FDA forced a recall of this candy for unusually high lead levels). I toyed with using broken Werther candies and diced candied lemon instead of the Pulparindo. To me, this is a dessert -- doesn't it look just like a sundae? Made for The Wild Bunch for ZWT8's trip to Mexico.
