The Cucumber flavor Tamalitoz, is so refreshing! Extravagant… maybe a little. Want to take it to the next level? drop one into your favorite beverage and see what happens (take our word for it).
Tamalitoz started as a tiny candy store in Mexico City making small batch hard candy run 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 flavors of Mexico, and Dec being British, wanted something that kept true to the type of candy he grew up with.
One day, as they were making a batch of watermelon pillows, a customer came in and said “these candies looked like tiny candy tamales” or in Spanish “tamalitos”. That was the eureka moment, and Dec said, we should call these candies Tamalitoz with a “Z”, and that is where the name came from.
