Here at WTF snacks, the stranger the snack, the more attention we pay. Past favorites include candied scallops with just enough sugar to offset seafood, lip-shaped wax that's about as inedible as it sounds, and burger-flavored chips mildly reminiscent of McDoubles from your neighborhood friendly McDonald's.
Yet we can't figure out why anyone would want to try watermelon strings with salsa. So we tried it for you and are reporting back.
Aside from the vivid red tone far beyond any meat sauce, the 'gheti surprisingly resembles actual spaghetti. When first biting into a gummy strand, we are greeted with slightly artificial watermelon taste. Think sour patch watermelons without the sour powder. They are tasty, though not as practical in loading your mouth with flavor as a more full-bodied snack would.
Salsa (aka Flavored Hot Liquid Candy)
Que Rica Vida describes dulces enchilados for us:
Some of the [dulces enchilados] were seasoned with chile piquín; some with tamarind pulp and others were made with my favorite condiment, chamoy, a savory Mexican sauce made of dry fruit with chili, salt, sugar, water, and vinegar ... Chamoy can be sold as a liquid, powder, or paste, and it ranges from mild to very spicy. One thing is for sure — all of them, no matter how spicy, are delicious!Despite the unappetizing presentation of this liquid candy, we were determined to give it a try. We applied a dab on the tongue without the 'gheti. Its smokiness and sweetness were overshadowed by a even more artificial taste. But since the salsa was meant to accompany the 'gheti, the real test follows.
