Keeping with the true spirit of Day of the Dead, our Sweet Candy Sugar Skulls are not creepy or morbid. They continue the celebration this cultural holiday with the festive tin and bright skull-shaped candy.
Sugar skulls are often used to decorate the altars during Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) which is November 1st and 2nd. Deceased individuals are honored with their name inscribed on the forehead of a sugar skull.
Did you know that sugar art dates back to the 17th century when Italian missionaries visited the New World? Mexicans had very little money at that time and learned from Catholic friars how to make decorations out of sugar.
One tin. Tin colors vary. Tin measures 3.5 inches long x 2.75 inches wide. 1.4 oz. of vibrant candy skulls.
