Today, on May 5th, Cinco De Mayo is celebrated in Mexico and many other countries - a day that commemorates the Mexican army's victory over the French army in 1862. However, not only historical events are in focus on this day, but also culinary delights. Cinco De Mayo is a day when many Mexicans enjoy traditional dishes such as tacos, nachos, or guacamole. But sweets are also an important part of celebrating this day.
Popular candies include Mazapán (a type of marzipan) or Tamarindo (a fruit candy). Churros are also particularly popular - fried dough sticks that are sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon and often served with chocolate or Dulce de Leche, a caramel cream. Cinco De Mayo is therefore not only a holiday for Mexican history, but also for the country's culinary diversity.
