History of Lucas Mango
Today, the Lucas trademark is owned, produced, and distributed by Mars, which is an American multinational producer of candies. However, the Lucas candies were not invented by Mars.
In 1986 in the city of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, two brothers started making candy from Tamarind pulp, called Rico Pelo Loco. This candy soon became a huge sensation, which led to the brothers establishing their own candy manufacturing company, Alitec.
After a year, the brothers redid the brand image of the company and gave birth to Alimentos Matre S.A. de C.V., which is a Mexican candy manufacturing company. With the establishment of this company, the Lucas brand came to light. It got its name from their most popular candy, Lucas Acidito, a lemon-flavored spicy powder that was responsible for a huge boost in their growth.
Over the years, Lucas produced innovative products with creative packaging, which made this candy even more popular. Most of the brand’s candies were fruity flavored candies with a hint of spice. Lucas Mango is one such candy that is a mango-flavored powder mixed with chili powder.
These diverse candies could be eaten both on their own and by sprinkling them on top of their favorite foods. In 2001, the company grew widely popular in international markets such as North America, South America, Europe, and Asia, which resulted in Grupo Mars Inc. acquiring the Lucas brand.
Today, Mars manufactures and distributes the signature Lucas products that come in liquid and powdered form. Some of their most popular candies include Lucas Mango, Lucas Gusano, Skwinkles, Salsagheti, and more.
