Chamoy and Peach Rings. Have you heard of Chamoy? This Mexican condiment is made with dried chilies, lime juice and fruit (typically mangoes, apricots, or plums). The result is a salty, spicy, sweet and tangy sauce or paste. It will transform even the simplest of ingredients into a flavor bomb! 

In Mexico, chamoy comes in many forms. Originally, it was a salted dried fruit (saladito), traditionally made from ume plums, which are really sour apricots. You can also find Chamoy in seasoning powder form, spiked with chiles. 

It’s commonly sprinkled over fruits and vegetables for a simple but delectable snack, but you will also encounter chamoy drizzled on tortilla chips, or in candy form – including gummies, fruit paletas (Mexican popsicles) or raspado (shaved ice). 

The History of Chamoy 

It is believed that chamoy was brought to Mexico by the Chinese, and only began to be considered a traditional Mexican food in more recent decades. 

No one agrees on exactly when chamoy first appeared, but -

according to some food historians, it probably arrived between the 16th and 19th century with Chinese immigrants, during a period when many Asian ingredients arrived in Mexico, including tamarind, mangoes and ume plums. 

We also can’t pinpoint a precise time when Mexicans started eating Chamoy. Eventually they started adding spicy peppers to dried or fresh sour fruit and that turned into what we now understand as chamoy. 

In the 1970s, Mexican candy companies started mass-producing chamoy in the form of candy, and by the 1990’s it was simply part of the culture. 

Inventing Chamoy Candy  

Mexicans have been enjoying sweets since sugar was first introduced to Mesoamerica during the Spanish conquest, beginning with cacao. Centuries later, sugar is used in many traditional treats. Mazapan, palanqueta and dulces enchilados – meaning “spicy candy”. 

Since then, sweets have taken on many new forms as new habits and cultures fused together. Allowing us to experience new sensations and flavors – such as Chamoy candy. 

Chamoy Peach Rings 

Chamoy peach rings are one of many variations dulces -

enchilados. In Mexico, you can easily find the popular candy sold in grocery stores and even by street vendors.
