Candy Stores

Celaya

You can’t leave Celaya without visiting one of the city’s candy stores where the cajeta shines as its star. Among the most popular and traditional are La Tradicional de Salgado and El Caballo sin Rival.

La Tradicional de Salgado, located at 109 Benito Juárez st, was founded in 1860. Its yellow facade and gold metallic letters make it recognizable even from the distance. It’s the city’s most important cajeta producer, so there you’ll find several cajeta-made candies. During your visit to this store, you’ll also learn a little about its history, the production process and all the cajeta byproducts.

On the other hand, El Caballo sin Rival is in the most central area (Hidalgo 207). It was inaugurated in 1915 and throughout its history it never ceases to amaze everyone with the unmistakable flavor of its cajeta.

The Dorado de Cajeta is its most representative candy with more than 100 years legacy—it’s packaged in the traditional cajete (small box of tejamanil that gives the candy its name). On top, add almonds, walnuts or sugar and go through hot plates, making it brown as if it were a cocada. If you dare, you can make this delicacy yourself.
