I am going to save you from this humiliation and I am going to suggest some items that Mexicans and Mexican-Americans think are yummy! Think of how popular you are going to be! (assuming you are not Mexican or Mexican American.)
Here are some of my favorite Hecho en Mexico (made in Mexico) items that you don't have to be afraid to pick up in the "Mexican" "Latin" or "ethnic foods" aisle of your supermarket. If where you live, they don't have an ethnic section at the grocery store,I am afraid of you, and you should consider moving. harhar! No but seriously! Creepy! Houston is sooooo diverse that just about every local grocery store carries many of the popular ethnic products.
Let me know what you think if you do try any out.

Topo Chico! This drink is my absolute top favorite when it comes to mineral water/club soda/seltzer. I am a fanatic! I have tried many types of mineral water, and this tops all with its super carbonation kick! I usually add lemon and a sprinkle of salt over ice. My freaking mouth is watering!
On that same note (salt and lemon) these are peanuts covered with a lemon and salt mix. They are a dry snack, but after a while you will still be licking your fingers! Now why does that sound nasty?
I LOVE GANSITOS!!! These are my personal weakness. They should have horns! Gansitos are twinkie like but the cake inside is more cake like, and are covered with strawberry jam and cream. Then as if that was not rich enough, they are dipped in a chocolate shell with chocolate sprinkles. These are the things that I have to sneak into the shopping cart, so P-Bear wont make fun of me! Watch out though, they replenish these regularly. It is best to get them soon after they have been put out for the best result. The longer they have been out on the shelf the harder the cake filling is. I personally, eat them either way!
