Eat with your Eyes: Stacked Fruit

Arcor Veni

For a long time I’ve thought that Arcor candy is some of the worst in the world. Arcor is a huge company and makes candy for many Central and South American countries and actually has quite a big presence in the United States as well. I find their chocolate products disappointing, as well as those with cookies or nuts in them. So I was rather surprised at how much I liked these filled hard candy fruit rods I picked up in July. They little wrappers call them Veni.

They’re made in the Italian tradition of fruity filled hard candies. The wrappers are also nice, a heavy foil with a wax paper lining. The anana (pineapple) was particularly good.

  1. We have Arcor candies in the lobby at work.  Not these ones specifically but ones in more of an ovoid shape.  They come in orange, cherry, strawberry, lemon and pineapple flavors.  They’re all pretty good but pineapple is outstanding, I’ll agree.

  2. I love that style of candy—I’m used to the Italian ones though. Might have to try the Arcor ones if I can find them.
