Guatemalan traditional candies and sweets are still made with fruits and seeds (they are so behind!). At front we have sweets made with white meat of the coconut, the colored one have a fruit juice added to the mix, and sugar, lots of it. In the background you have sweets made with seeds, mainly squash, pumpkin and sesame, mixed with thicken sugarcane juice called melcocha. Once again, watch your calorie intake, one this pieces can give you enough calories to cover your daily allowance. Still, they are so delicious. I preferred the sweets in the background. A ha, you are salivating… I know.
