    That looks like barbecue sauce from here. What does it taste like? What is the consistency? Where did you get it?

    I'm betting it's made from tamarind. Filipinos have something similar. How much sugar is in it?

    Is it it some small flavored flan? Or cajeta? I can't tell what it is from that picture.

    Yeah, it looks like a tamarind candy. Which is so yummy, and super sweet. Is it homemade? I always worry about where treats like that are packaged, some places don't have the strictest health standards...

    It's tamarindo candy. I loved those. Haven't had those in a minute. Now they have the big ones that come out like spaghetti noodles on top. They sell tamarindo candy at Walmart too. Soo yummy.

    I love tamarind. It's an essential ingredient in Pad Thai.

    That specific one is called "Vaso Tamarindo"

    Thank you all! I haven't had these in a very long time and no one ever knows what they are called. I just tell them the texture and they know what I am. Y'all are the best.
