We are on a quest to locate the very best snacks in the world. Our international snack blog is just over a year old and we have reviewed the best cookies, cakes, sweets, chocolates, and candies from 30 different countries. Just about a year ago we first encountered the Gamesa brand from Mexico. Today our snack blog is again back in Mexico and looking at a sweet treat from South of the Border.
Last time we took a trip to Mexico we did a review of Emperador Combinado Cookies. Today we are again looking at a Mexican cookie, we are reviewing the Gamesa Arcoiris Marshmallow Cookies. Gamesa is currently owned by the snack conglomerate Pepsico, but has maintained the Gamesa name as a stand-alone Mexican brand. Let’s take a closer look at this snack under review.
Our Mexican cookie pack comes in a mostly white sleeve with a little bit of blue trim, it’s a similar presentation as the last Gamesa snack we previously reviewed so we are assuming this is their general approach. This snack has the Gamesa logo in the corner and the words “Arcoiris Galletas con Malvaviso” on the package. Is also reads “6 Gelletas” followed by the English translation. In addition a picture of three cookies, two with silly expression and the third, an exact image of the snack it contains. On to the taste test of Gamesa Arcoiris Marshmallow Cookies!
Arcoiris Marshmallow Cookies are a true treat! After reviewing so many snacks from all around the world it is getting harder for us to find a unique take on a snack. This is absolutely original, and delicious. The cookie base is similar to the other Gamesa cookies we have sampled, except this version has small strawberry flavor crystals. On top of the cookie, four marshmallows, two pink and two white. As if that wasn’t enough, the marshmallows are covered in coconut flakes. It’s sweet, flavorful, and all comes together to “wow” our testers. We agree with the girl who prompted the trade, this is our favorite Mexican snack so far.
Will World of Snacks offer Gamesa Arcoiris Marshmallow Cookies for sale online when our international snack store is expanded to include Mexican snacks? We are 100% sure these Mexican cookies will be included in our normal inventory. Can’t wait to sample some foreign snacks?
