best Mexican candy and pan dulce?

Lillian Hsu | May 6, 200610:20 PM     3

I am in search of the best places in the Bay Area to buy Mexican candy. I'm hooked on the tamarind sticks (tangy red tamarind powder and seed pods wrapped around a stick), but I'd like to branch out and try other sweets.

I've been getting my candy fix from the produce market across from Otaez on International Blvd (Oakland), but they have a pretty small selection. Any other suggestions?

I'd also like recommendations for the best pan dulce (especially those filled with custard.)

Thanks!
