Mazapán de la Rosa has a rich history dating back to the 1950s, when it was created by a family-owned candy business in Guadalajara, Mexico. The recipe for the candy is based on marzipan, a traditional Spanish sweet, but it uses peanuts instead of almonds, making it a unique blend of Mexican and Spanish flavors. The candy is also strongly associated with the city of Guadalajara, which is known as "the city of roses." This association led to the adoption of a rose as the prominent logo on all the company's products.

Mazapán de la Rosa: The History of a Popular Mexican Candy

Mazapán de la Rosa is a popular Mexican candy made from sugar, peanuts, and artificial flavoring. Between 1948 and 1950, Don Jesús Michel González and Doña Elvira Velasco Rolón opened a candy business called Conitas in Guadalajara, Mexico to support their large family of thirteen kids. They sold various sweets, including dragees, popsicles, and caramels. In 1950, they created the recipe for Mazapán. The recipe is based on Turrón, a traditional Spanish sweet made with almonds. However, peanuts were used instead of almonds because they were cheaper. The candy does not contain eggs, unlike the original marzipan recipe. The company's original emblem was three strawberries, but it was changed to a rose after another company threatened to sue them for using a similar logo. In 2018, the company broke a Guinness World Record by cooking the largest marzipan in the world. Mazapán de la Rosa is typically sold in stores and consumed as a snack, but it can also be used in desserts such as ice cream and custard. The company also sells chocolate-covered marzipans in two sizes.
