Regional varieties of candies from 9 states in Mexico & the finest stone-ground chocolate from Oaxaca.

More Info

Regional candies exist all over Mexico and you’ll find dozens of them at the Galería del Dulce.

Stop by and let owner Veronica Mendoza Aubert take you on a short, free gastronomic tour de candy through nine of Mexico’s states. At the sampling area in the middle of the store, she’ll explain where each candy comes from and what it’s made of.

The individually wrapped small bags of candies make great gifts to bring back to people north of the border.

You’ll also find some other things for sale made by Mexican craftspeople, including jewelry made from found bird feathers and ornately painted pottery.
