By the bus terminal (on Amazonas) and on Martinez, on the way to the baths, there are several sugarcane stalls where you can buy jugo de caña, pieces of sugarcane to chew on and many other sweet things.
On the main street, Ambato, there are several shops also selling sweet things and here you can often see someone standing in the door working with the melcocha, a taffy which is hand pulled.
I must say that I didn’t try any of these sweet things as I did not feel like eating sweet things while in Baños, so I can’t say how they taste.
