Brazilian Candy Fest: Damazonia Chocolates and Garoti Chocolates



These little dark chocolate foil-wrapped bonbons by Damazonia Chocolate consist of three unique flavors- Brazil Nut, Cupuacu, and Acai. The Brazil Nut is tasty but unsurprising-the mellow flavor and large size of the nuts cuts the bitterness of the dark chocolate.

The acai bonbon is filled with a firm not-too-processed fruit jelly. You can taste the strong sweet and sour of the acai fruit bursting from the mini bite. It tastes fresh, far more natural than your average American fruit jelly or filling.  The Cupuacu is an entirely new taste to me, resembling an extra-fruity fig. I liked it but need to taste the real fruit to wrap my head around it.


The Garoto Bonbon Assortment contains all kinds of unique cool candy combos and flavors, too. They're all tasty, but there are a few that warrant a special shout-out.

Serenata de Amor- Cashew-Nut Cream Filling with Crunchy Wafer. Wow, Why aren't there more cashew-based creams in the candy world? Like peanut butter but mellow and delicate. I love this.

Surreal- Peanut Butter Cream Filling with Crunchy Wafer

Serenata de Branco- White with Crunchy Wafer and Cashew-Nut Cream Filling

Caribe- Banana Filling. This is another flavor I've never experienced in the candy realm. Most banana-based flavors are so artificial and don't even resemble real banana. Instead, the Caribe tastes more like a banana-fruit paste, true to taste and uniquely celebrating banana as a candy element. These are amazing.

Gingerbread Flavored. Another great one! The center of this bonbon has the consistency and taste of gingerbread cookie dough. Amazing. Inspiring!

It Coco- Coconut Filling

Crocante- Peanut and Caramel Crunch Filling. A crunchy, light and buttery brittle!

Opereta- White with Cashew Nut.

Mundy- Chocolate Mousse Filling

Ao Leite- Milk Chocolate

Milk Chocolate Stick

Thank you for sharing these Brazilian travel treats, Jennifer and Clarissa!
