Treats are an easy souvenir to bring back, and a great way to show your friends and family that you were thinking of them while you were traveling. When looking for goodies to bring home to friends and family, it’s a bit easier to go for the pre-packaged versions of the local favorites.

Popular sweets include polvoron (crunchy and crumbly, and comes in a wide variety of flavors), Choc Nut bars (a powdery chocolate and nut candy bar that is very popular with kids), and pastillas de leche (sweet and soft milk candies).
