Festive Día De Los Muertos Candies and Gifts.

Enjoy our vibrant collection inspired by Mexico’s Day of the Dead

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead in English, is all about family and tradition — two things we at See’s Candies hold dear to our hearts. To honor this beautiful holiday, we wanted to dive into its history, festivities and, of course, customary sweets. You know we’d never skip a treat!

What is Día de los Muertos?
Celebrated November 1 – 2, Día de los Muertos traces back thousands of years to Central Mexico and represents a special two-day reunion with the souls of loved ones who have passed. Its festivities include celebrating at parades, decorating colorful home altars (called ofrendas) and feasting!

Although chocolate is not widely included in the occasion, the holiday calls for sweets in various regions across Mexico. The most widely enjoyed is pan de muertos, or Bread of the Dead, a fluffy loaf sprinkled with sugar and topped with bone-shaped bread pieces.

Similarly filled with meaning and sugary goodness, vibrantly decorated sugar skulls (calaveras) are often placed on the ofrenda and carved with the name of the deceased. Although these treats aren’t meant to be eaten, there’s thankfully no shortage of Día de los Muertos sweets to devour. Caramel flan, Mexican hot chocolate and candied pumpkins seasoned with cinnamon and sugar are all happily enjoyed during the holiday.

The festivities aren’t limited to those who have passed! Día de los Muertos gifts for family and friends, like food, drinks and flowers, are also common and always happily received.
