A Surprising Piece of Artwork
One of the most versatile, and most beautiful expressions of Mexican folk art is hojalata (tin art work). Our Mexican Sweet Tooth candy is not only delicious and nutritious, it is packaged in a beautiful hand-pressed tin box with detail and decorations that date back to the 1500’s. This box can be reused once the candies are gone – as jewelry box, a memory keepsake box, and more.
