Slaps Lollipops – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What are slaps candy made of?
Slaps Lollipops are Mexican candies made of corn syrup, sugar, iodized salt, malic acid, citric acid, artificial flavors, artificial colors, and more ingredients. They combine well to give the perfect spicy, sweet, and sour candy flavor.
What flavor are slaps?
Slaps are a twist of flavors with four dominant tastes: green apple, mango, tamarind blue, and watermelon. A different color identifies each flavor—blue for tamarind, yellow for mango, red for watermelon, and green for green apple. The tropical fruit combo is packed in a Salts package of 10 pieces per container.
Are slaps salty?
Yes. One of the three tastes that can overwhelm your palate is salty. The Mexican candies are made up of sugar, corn syrup, iodized salt, and chili peppers, among other ingredients, so it’s only natural for the lollipops to taste salty, spicy, and sour—all at the same time!
How do you eat slap lollipops?
Slap lollipops are thin pieces of Mexican candies wrapped separately in a container of 10 pieces. You have to peel the cover of the candy to make it jiggle first and then roll it up to taste the tangy and sweet flavor of Slaps.
Are slaps lollipops spicy?
A Slaps Lollipop has chili pepper in the candies, like most Mexican candies, so that the taste can be spicy at times. However, the spiciness is not the dominating flavor in each Slaps candy. The tropical fruits’ texture and the sugary coating make them sweet and sour, more than spicy.
