Yep, they're that famous! They sell out before noon almost every day if you want to buy them individually. They do sell boxes by the pound, but my waistline does not need a pound of candy sitting in my apartment.
Finally, on the fourth try, the answer was yes, so we got to put our money on the turnstile and spin it round. Lo and behold it was turned back to us with candy on the tray! What fun. I would have really liked to meet the nuns who make the candy, and of course take their picture, but that's not how they roll. It was a really cool experience and I suggest you stop by there if you're in Sevilla. Personally, yemas are not my favorite sweet, but they're worth trying. In fact, they're so popular among Sevillians that even the major grocery stores stock the 1/2 and full kilo boxes and sell them for a hefty price. Unfortunately, I can't find the photos I took of the actual candy, but you can have a looksie here.
