I found these in a random farmers/polish market on the way to my car dealership. I walked the aisles taking in all the different foods; jams, cookies, spices, soups and whatever other interesting things that aren’t in your normal supermarket. I then spied these Coronado Paleta de Cajeta lollipops, or “Goat’s Milk Lollipops”. I’ve heard of these traditional Mexican candies before and had yet to try them. Here goes nothing!
Lovely oblong flat disc shape. It’s an interesting texture, I expected it to be somewhat soft, but it’s rock hard. It made me question if that’s the real texture, or if the lollipops were old and on the stale side.
The flavor is milky and sweet, and that’s about it. I was hoping for more deep, creamy, dulce de la leche flavors but it doesn’t have them. I also get no “goatiness” from them at all, which I’m not sure is a good or bad thing. Goat’s milk has this strange odious tang to it and I didn’t detect any of this here.
I fun thing to try but I don’t see myself craving these again in the future. At least, not unless I was offered the fresh stuff….
