Mini Sweet Ground Peanut Square - Santa Helena Mini Paçoquita 14 Unit 210g
About this deal
Paçoca in its present form was invented during the Colonial Brazil Period, but Native Brazilian peoples had recipes that mixed cassava flour with other ingredients prior to colonization. Those recipes were modified by the settlers, creating the current combination that uses sugar.  Name and relationship to the savory dish [ edit ] The Santa Helena factory was founded in 1942 by his grandfather, José Marques Telles, and has been in the family ever since. Renato was working in the administrative section of the company when the idea for the new product came out. “At first, it was just for ourselves. We used a little hammer to press the ground peanuts and the sugar together and mold it in the shape of a cork.”

Brazil’s peanut production in the 2020/2021 crop is estimated at 597.5 thousand tons, an increase of 7% compared to the 2019/2020 crop, according to the August’s National Supply Company (CONAB) crop survey. This production currently occupies an area of 165.6 thousand hectares. The name "paçoca" comes from the Tupi word "posok" (pronounced /pɔsɔk/) which means "to crumble" or "to shatter," and is shared with the salty Paçoca dish. Both are a mix of cassava flour with other ingredients: peanut and sugar in the case of the sweet, and carne-de-sol ( sun-dried-beef) for the salty dish. Both dishes seem to have originated from the same Native Brazilian customs, but have grown to be completely different products. It was the 1980s when Renato Fechino and his brother started mixing ground peanuts with sugar in a PVC pipe while waiting for the factory’s candy batch to be ready. “We would do it in a very improvised way”, he remembers.Outside the country, Paçoquita is mainly sold to Brazilian expats communities, that have a sentimental bonding to the candy. The company has been investing in ways to conquer fans with different accents and is starting to look for new markets. Paçoquita has a very strong brand built over the years by its pioneering, by its quality and taste, and our efficient communication”, says Renato. There are more than 300 brands offering a similar product in the country, but none is a close competitor.
