Caramelos are ususally the best grade hashish available in Spain. They normally weigh around 5 grammes and have been hand shaped. The reason for their distinct ovaloid shape is that they are often carried in the gut of the courier. Sometimes they are inserted into the body via the anus but more often they are swallowed. Female couriers have another option. Unfortunately hashish smuggled in the gut often becomes tainted. The presentation of this hashish /- 5 grammes, ovaloid, blackish exterior, rich brown interior, is a marker of quality.
