Halloween: Most Popular Latin American Candies

It’s that time again when children rule the streets in full costume yelling out “trick or treat”. We all know what we can expect, Snickers, M&M’s, kit kat and candy corn among others. But what if your kids were yelling “Yo quiero mi Halloween” in Latin American? We take a look at some of the most popular candies south of the border.

Los niños de Mexico know all-too-well the allure of a packet of Duvalin. This candy consists of a small tub of hazelnut and vanilla frosting. Included in the package is a small plastic spoon to scoope out this sugary treat.

Los Colombianos will instantly recognize the shiny blue paper and airplane logo of the Jet Chocolate Bar. A lucky few children might even open their package to find a bar shaped like a dinosaur. Orales!

Para los Peruanos there is the Doña Pepa bar. This vanilla cookie with a dose of chocolate coating and sprinkles looks very simple but most Peruvians will tell you that they can be crazy addictive!

Los Ecuatorianos have the famous Galak bar. Apparently they are also found in Europe which they are called Milkybar. The Galak is a creamy, milky, melt-in-your-mouth confections will leave you wanting more.

And last but not least we got one of my favorite Mexican candies I loved as a kid, the Paleta Payaso. This delicious candy que consiste de bombon cubierto de chocolate, su carita formado de gomitas de azucar. I love the combination of marshmellow with chocolote very similar to the smores without the Graham cracker. The best part is you can eat his face off.

These are just a few of some of the most popular candies found in Latin America if you happen to get any while trick or treating then you are a few lucky ones. Stay safe and Happy Halloween.
