I remember as a kid in Mexico City (1958-61) being sent off to the tamaleria with my kid sister to buy some tamales, and the BIG TREAT was that we were allowed to pick up a couple of pink tamales dulces for ourselves in addition to the "regular" ones -- that tamaleria had several kinds for sale, southern style ones in banana leaves as well as the northern style ones in corn husks. They would put the selection into a brown paper bag, still piping hot, and on top would go two of the dulces, one for my sister and one for me, VERY pink with VERY MANY raisins and VERY sweet. We loved 'em!!
