Black Cast Skull Candles

A splendid addition to any ofrenda. Candles are cast in molds from fine quality wax in San Miguel de Allende. The candles are then hand painted with intricate floral and vine patterns. This 17th-century traditionl of candle painting originated in central Mexico from by church artists who decorated the "santuario" altar side stations of the cross. Many 16th - 18th-century churches had soap and candle production on-site which supplied outpost churches and even sold their handmade products in the marketplace.
3 3/4” high x 2 3/4" wide x 3 3/4" deep.

Red (center) A3010 $34 each

Turquoise (right) A3011 $34 each

Yellow (left) A3009 $34 each (out)

These candles burn a center column for over 15 hours, and then collapse - but for 15 hours the skulls look great. Be sure to burn on a saucer.

Sugar Skull Candy Tins

black sugar skull candy tin open to show colorful skull candies

Is that a sugar skull in your pocket or are you just happy to see me??? These adorable, colorful hammered tins hold a bunch of little sugar skull candies. Can't say the taste of the candies will wow a refined candy connoisseur, but kids will devour them.

I love the empty sugar skull box and have hoarded many - I use them for earrings, paper clips and those easy-to-lose micro chips for my camera. These really are adorable and make great little Day of the Dead gifts for teacher, office mates or friends you run into at the Safeway. Keep several in your pocket and surprise someone with a "random act of sugar skull!"

Cute 3.5" x 2.5" colorful candy tins, each filled with 1.4 oz skull candies.

3 sugar skull candy tins

A2318 $10 / 3 tins (one of each color!)

Drink of the Dead Energy Drink with colorful smiling skeleton

Day of the Dead Energy Drink

Tired of Toro Rojo? But still interested in an energy drink to restore your razzle? I confess, I bought it for the adorable can. How cool is this? But we cracked some open last week and it's really good! It's an effervescent wild berry taste that isn't super sweet. Thirst quenching.

Since living here Sonoma Wine Country, I can honestly say, "it has wild berry bouquet, cempasuchil undertones and a sugar skull finish. Plus, one turns heads when drinking at the Starbuck's patio. Perfect for Day of the Dead parties or at weddings before the bar opens! This drink has caffeine but much less than the famous brands. Not a soda for children.

Refresco de los Muertos is perfect for BBQ's, picnics, Day of the Dead parties or for weddings before the bar opens or when folks are pooped out from dancing. This drink has caffeine but much less than the famous brands. Not a soda for children.
