Los Saladitos are considered a candy in Mexico and are very popular at that. There are various flavors available in both markets; spicy, salty, ginseng and cream being some of the most common varieties. In Mexico dried plums and apricots are the most common types of dried fruit snacks sold in the country; they come in a variety of textures and flavorings such as being coated in chile and lime or sweetened with anise and sugar, as well as being dipped into mouthwatering tangy and spicy sauces. A common way to eat the candy is to suck the juice from the bag and then eat the saladitos, though it can also be done the other way around and leave the juice last which can be poured onto other fruits. Saladitos are also added into lollipops, can be eaten with oranges or eaten while drinking a beer.
