Next November 1st and 2nd, in Mexico, the Day of the Dead is celebrated to honour the deceased, and we bring it here in a chocolate format.

But where does that tradition come from?

It is a pre-Hispanic tradition, with different interpretations according to the many cultures that have passed through the Aztec country. They all agree on one thing, the importance of honouring the deceased through an offering, which in some cases lasted several days. The aim of all, was that the deceased reached successfully one of the four paradises of which there was evidence then.

Since 2003, this beautiful and colourful tradition, lived with great intensity in the Mexican country, is considered by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage. So, if you happen to be in the country on those dates, enjoy a day full of vitality, ask for a “pozole” and ¡Viva Mexico!
