I love the classic de la Rosa Mazapan (peanut candy marzipan style) so much. It's the ideal sweet bite to keep me going. So on a recent visit to Mexico I was excited to try the company's Pulparin Dots. Tamarind pulp with salt and chili space encased in a sugar shell. Tamarind is a good flavor but the chili and salt were overpowering. It was just a vaguely organic tasting spice bomb in my mouth--with a crunchy shell. I'd like someone else's perspective--someone who loves the mix of sweet and spice, maybe someone who has tasted a number of tamarind-based candies. I think there's more context needed here.

For an entirely new flavor, try out Thai Coconut Peanut m&m's. I'm not sure they agreed with my sensibilities of delicious, but they're something different from the rest of the vast m&m's line. The coconut and peanut make a robust flavor combination, with a lot of savory mixed with the sweet. I'd be curious to see people's reactions to these.
As for the flavor vote: British Toffee has my heart!

Someday I will boast that I have tried every flavor of Pocky. This dream, however, is far off because there are so many varieties of the brand's cookies dipped in chocolate. This one, the Coffee & Cocoa flavor, is meant to resemble the flavor of a Tiramisu. A chocolate biscuit is dipped in a deep coffee flavored chocolate and the combination is terrific. It's part of a 3-box series depicting schoolgirls.
The most info I could find online is that the set commemorates the end of the Heisei era in Japan. If any readers know more about the set, please let me know!
