Candy that reminds you of your abuelita or favorite tia. Am I lying? Anytime I see this candy, it reminds me of my childhood when I would go to my wela's house and she would have a candy dish full of these and tell me to grab as much as I wanted. 

I know I'm not alone because when I asked Leo, he had the same memory but his was a favorite tia. The situation was always the same though. Even your tia would say you want some mijo/mija? Take as much as you want. Sweet, sweet memories. Who has the same fond memory of this (Christmas) candy?
