Candy Flavored by History and Tradition
Ancient cultural influence is still found in traditional Mexican candy, the roots of which go back for centuries. Chocolate, which comes from cocoa beans, a worldwide favorite used in everything from candy and desserts to martini's, is a food item that originated in Mexico. The ancient Aztec people believed cocoa was a gift from the god Quetzalcoatl and mixed it with spices such as chili peppers to add flavor to the bitter tasting bean. Sugar wasn't used in Mexican food until the Europeans brought it over as they began to invade the territory. Thousands of years ago, the only sugar substance that was used to make "sweets" was honey, and this was mixed with seeds or corn and used in religious ceremonies. As a result, many of the early candies weren't all that sweet, as they were flavored with naturally occurring spices and herbs. It wasn't until sugar came into the picture that traditional recipes started to include this sweetener.
One tasty delight from the early Mexicans was tziktli, also known as chicle. Chicle is a chewing gum made from trees and was used to stave off hunger and keep teeth clean. You can still find this traditional chewing gum at Candy Warehouse in tutti-frutti flavor, and available in a rainbow of colors. Another favorite treat found south of the border is derived from the tamarind fruit and offers a sour twist to the sweet and spicy flavors of traditional Mexican candies. We have everything from tamarindo gummies to chili-filled tamarind hard candy to satisfy both your sweet tooth and your curiosity.
How Mexican Candy Is Made
Many Mexican candies are still created from naturally sourced ingredients. Traditional marzipan is made with peanuts, and some sweet and spicy candies are still derived from the pulp of the all-natural tamarind fruit. This area of the world is so alive with culture, and the food choices are infused with such intense and satisfying flavor, it's not a surprise this influence is seen, and tasted, in the marvelous candies Mexico has to offer. From gummy candy made from natural chili flakes to all-natural and gluten-free lollipops in wildly delectable flavors like Tabasco, mango, and lime, you'll find the best Mexican candy selection right here at Candy Warehouse.
