6 Candies to Celebrate National Chamoy Day | L’Orenta Nuts
If one taste could encapsulate Mexico in a bite, it would be Chamoy. It can come as a dried fruit, candy, and sauce. “Anything that has all the flavors at once, sweet, sour, salty, spicy, and a (pickled sour fruit), that’s where Mexico loves to live” says chef Barbara Sibley of New York City’s La Palapa. Here are 6 candies to celebrate national Chamoy Day!
From a Chinese snack that arrived in Mexico through immigration, to a present day universal condiment of Mexican street food. Now to an even newer force in the restaurant kitchens of Mexico City and Manhattan. Chamoy has come a long way.
Chefs across the U.S. and Mexico continue to redefine how chamoy can be used in the kitchen. Familiarizing it for the American palate, and making it easier for Americans to enjoy this taste of Mexican tradition. And now we have National Chamoy Day on June 13th! This is your opportunity to celebrate.
In the 1970s, Mexican candy companies started mass-producing Chamoy candy and sauce. By the 1990s, its use became so common that its Asian origins had been lost to Mexican culture.
Today, Mexican children enjoy eating Chamoy-flavored candies,
including fruit-flavored lollipops rolled in or filled with Chamoy, candy powder, liquid candy drizzled on top of spicy tortilla chips, and Chamoy gummies.
It can be found drizzled over slices of mango and cucumber, mixed into cups of esquites (a creamy mix of corn, crema, cotija cheese, mayonnaise, lime, butter, and chile powder). Or lining a glass of mangonada (a spicy drink made with mango sorbet or mango shaved ice, fresh mango, lime juice, and chile powder).
