Racist Candy Tastes Bad
As I shuffled my way through Barajas airport last Thursday, I slipped on my sandal and came eye to eye with a curious face staring out at me from the vending machine.
I gasped upon realizing what I had just discovered—that Conguitos, one of Spain's favorite racist candies, were in fact still being sold on this planet.
Conguitos ranks high up in the offensive category, along with France’s Tete de negre (now discontinued), Spain’s Cola Cao, and Germany’s Kinder Egg (it’s just plain offensive—not racist).
But, dear readers, in the midst of bad news there is always good: I am pleased to report that one of the world’s most racist chocolates doesn’t even taste good, and are in fact little more than bittersweet chocolate-covered peanuts.
This realization came as a big relief: It would have been a painful boycott if these things had been tasty.
