The Best Mexican Candies to Include in Your Valentine’s Day Gifts

1 comment

Ah, Valentine’s Day! Known in Mexico as Día del Amor y la Amistad, or “the day of love and friendship,” February 14th is a delightful holiday with different meanings in Mexico than it has in other parts of the world. One of the main differences in Mexican Valentine’s Day is that it puts a huge emphasis on the love between friends, not just romantic love. However, that just gives us MORE opportunities to show our affection for our loved ones — and one of the best ways to do that, of course, is with Mexican candy! 

Here are a few of the MexiCrate team’s favorite Mexican candies to include in our Valentine’s Day gifts: no matter who they’re for, the nostalgic nature of Mexican candies mean they are ALWAYS an amazing way to show you care! 

For that special someone: Chocolate

What better way to show your love for your partner than with that classic gift of love, chocolate? Mexican chocolate has a unique flavor profile filled with rich spices and delectable decadence. Go in a classic direction with these De La Rosa Biachi heart-shaped chocolates, or try something new with coconut-filled De La Rosa chocolate bars. Looking for a little more heat? Kick it up a notch with alcohol-infused chocolates like these delightful tequila-filled chocolates from Jose Cuervo

For the new flame: Spicy candies

How does the saying go? “Sugar, spice, and everything nice”? That’s a great way to sum up this unique category of Mexican candy. If your taste buds are anything like ours, you have mouth watering memories of the creative spice profile and how deliciously it blends with fruits like mango and watermelon. Spicy candy is also a great way to flirt with your new flame: add some Jovy Revolcaditas fruit chews con chile or a bag of De La Rosa extra picante PulparinDots to your Valentine’s Day gift.  

For your oldest friends: Tamarindo

There’s nothing quite like the classics, and there’s no better way to show your love for the people who’ve been there from the beginning with — the flavors that have been there from the beginning, too! Classic, nostalgic ingredients like tamarindo pay homage to the traditions of Mexican candy-making. Some of our favorite tamarindo treats include classic Pulparindo hard candies and El Leoncito Martillos’ tamarindo chews. For the gift that keeps on giving, try out this 100-piece pack of Safari Mini Cucharitas de Tamarindo


For your inner circle: Something to share

So you know you want to gift everyone in your friend group nostalgic Mexican candies for Valentine’s Day, but you’re not sure what everyone likes. The solution? Grab a few piñatas and turn your Valentine’s gifts into a proper Valentine’s celebration. We’ve got a delightful mini piñata party pack that comes with four full POUNDS of classic Mexican candies. Or if your squad is more of the “eat first, party later” type, skip the piñatas and go straight for this six-pound candy variety pack.

For anyone and everyone: Variety boxes

Finally, when you’re not sure where to start, why not start with it all? MexiCrate’s variety boxes offer everything you need to get a crash course in traditional Mexican candy. Shop variety boxes in themes like Spicy or Tamarindo, or add some savory notes with our Mexican Candy & Snacks curated variety box.
