Eating jícama lollipop in Cholula
I had never heard of jícama before I came to Mexico. To be specific, during the road trip through Colima, I wanted some fruit as usual, so we stopped at the road at one of those places where the family sells their fruit and a girl made me a fruit salad, including this weird huge white ball which I had no idea about. I made one of my really strange faces when I saw this vegetable – fruit – whatever. But in the end, it was love at the first bite.
Since then I have always eaten jícama everywhere possible. And when my friend Arturo saw those jícama lollipops in Cholula, I could not say no. Obviously, all the Mexicans put sauces, salt, lemon and other rare stuff on it, but me just plain natural.
