Strange Mexican candy

Jill Rovitzky Black | Mar 18, 2002 06:00 PM

Last week, I picked up a 10-pack of Baby Lucas sour powder (aka polvo acidulce) on the candy shelf of the Hispanic section of a St. Paul, Minn. supermarket. It's packaged in what look like little salt shakers, and the main ingredients are sugar, salt, citric acid, and chili powder, so you're hitting a few flavor highlights together. Anyone familiar with this? Do you eat it in powder form, like pixie sticks? Do you sprinkle it on something? (I'm imagining a really odd sort of cinnamon toast.)
