Better-For-You Candies Are Having a Moment
Read more about the Tamalitoz in the media and press and why this artisanal Mexican candy is a fruity favorite for many, nationally and globally.
How It Started
It all started at Sugarox Candy Studio, a tiny candy store in Mexico City making small batch hard candy – owned and operated by husband & husband team, Jack and Dec.
Jack, being Mexican, wanted to come up with a line of candy that was inspired by the sweet, spicy and tangy flavors of Mexican candy. Dec, being British, wanted something that kept true to the traditional candy (or sweets as he calls them).
Tamalitoz are not like traditional Mexican candy, which are covered in Chili. We put the chili on the inside, so you get the sweet fruity flavor of the candy first. As you suck on them, hints of tangy and sour heat come through. When you reach the center you get that “OMG!” Tamalitoz moment.
