This was the most ideal to explore Mexican sweets and be schooled with their culture. There are many shops so you won't go wrong with any. Be indulged and must visit when you're here.

... candy street but not a must visit. Peep if and you will probably as Puebla is small enough. Walk around, walk around... that's what you do in Puebla.
