Chilean Food & Candy Review!

The following pictures are just a few candies & snacks & street foods that I tried while I lived in Chile, and I just wanted to share them. So, here they are:

. . .

Suny – A soft candy, toffee / caramel flavoured fudge.
Frugelé – Soft fruit flavoured, gummy candies with a sugar coating.
Guagüitas – A type of marshmallow mixed with a gummy candy. FUN FACT : “guagüitas” means “babies” in Spanish.
Amberries – Rasberry and Blackberry flavoured gummy candies with a sugar coating.
Chubi – Similar to M&Ms, with a very different flavour (they have a stronger cocoa flavour).
Hobby – Milk chocolate bar with nougat and peanut butter center.
Super 8 – Similar to a coffee crisp bar (without the coffee flavour).
Capri (cherry) – Milk chocolate bar with a cherry cream center.
Capri (cocoa) – Regular milk chocolate bar.
Mantecol – Brittle peanut butter bar, with a hint of cocoa.
Negrita – Vanilla wafer covered with milk chocolate.
Manjar – The Chilean Dulce De Leche (same caramel flavour, but more creamy/milky).
Trencito – Regular solid milk chocolate bar.
Criollitas – Sweet hard vanilla wafer cookies with sugar coating (good for tea or coffee).
Mote Con Huesillo – Peach juice with a full peach & boiled wheat. This was one of my favourite Chilean street foods.
Completo – Hot dog topped with diced tomatoes, mashed avocado (and your choice of ketchup, mayonnaise and/or mustard).
Empanadas – This particular one was fried and only had cheese & shrimp. But, there’s a more popular, baked one, with ground beef, onions, an olive and an egg (& it’s delicious). Empanadas can also be baked or fried.

Thanks for reading!
I hope this post inspires you to travel & try new things on your next adventure!
