Everyone talks about the wonderful sweets this store has. But it also had a wonderful collection of the "Day of the Dead" figurines and other Mexican artifacts on the second floor at very reasonable prices.

Stop in to get a taste for everything sweet in Mexico. Try something new and ask for samples, they give plenty! This place is fun and right next to all of the action in Guanajuato.

This surprisingly large candy store is just up the road of the Near the Jardin de la Union and across the street and up the road from the Teatro Juarez. The two-story shop is crammed with sugary treats. Try the macadamia paste, guayaba rolls or the sugary Barrachitos, flavored with your favorite alcohol.

They were ready to answer our questions and very patient as we tried... More
