Mexico’s biggest fruit snack: Candied fruit

AUSTIN, Texas – AUSTin, Texas (AP) A Mexican fruit snack that comes in a candy can and is topped with candied fruit is drawing comparisons to an American dessert.

Candy can fruit is a popular dessert in Mexico and is served in the U.S. as a sweet treat.

Mexican food blogger Dany Barrera shared photos on Twitter of a candied can with a “Mexican” label and a chocolate chip cookie.

Barrera posted photos of her homemade recipe on Facebook last week.

She said she added sugar and salt to the candied banana.

She also added crushed ice, whipped cream and a vanilla ice cream.

Mexicans love banana candies, which are also sold in the United States.
