Bubulubu – Chocolaty Goodness with Marshmallow and Strawberry


Last Updated on March 31, 2022 by Jim Edwards


What Is Bubulubu?

A candy that stands out from the typical spiciness found in Mexican confections is the Bubulubu (sometimes referred to as “Mini Bubulu”)—a chocolate candy with triple flavors in one bar! The soft, sweet goodness melts in your mouth, overwhelming the tastebuds with strawberry, chocolate, and marshmallow flavors. Mini Bubulubu is a candy bar with a soft chocolate casing, enclosing a delightful combo of strawberry and marshmallow.

One of our loyal readers (Ian R) asked us to write up this candy – it’s one of his favorite treats. He loves to put them in the freezer and eat them frozen. We agree but be careful you don’t bite hard a break a tooth!

History of Bubulubu

Bubulubu is a famous Mexican candy brand manufactured by Barcel. It is under the control of Grupo Bimbo Company, which was founded in 1945. They are a multinational group of bakeries that spread happiness with unique confectionaries and other baked goods in Europe, Asia, Canada, Mexico, and the USA.

Bubulubu: Triple Spectacular Taste

Mini Bubulubu candy

Mini Bubulubu is not only deliciously sweet but also one of a kind with its three flavors. Some candy companies make excellent sweets with chocolate-strawberry or chocolate-marshmallow, but combining the three flavors with an accurate blend is genuinely remarkable.

As you bite into the dark chocolate cover that hides the strawberry-flavored jelly and marshmallow, your tastebuds will get flooded by the delightful taste. You will experience the sweet goodness of chocolate, the stretchy texture of jelly, and the sponginess of the marshmallow, one after the other.
