Candy Stall at Monistrol de Montserrat, Barcelona

Candy Stall at Monistrol de Montserrat, Barcelona

Yesterday we visited Monistrol de Montserrat at Bages in Barcelona province and took some pictures of XIII Fira de la Coca i el Mató (a small market held once a year to sell local products, mainly coca - very similar to pizza dough with lots of homemade ingredients on top - or mató - a soft fresh cheese served with honey). I will start with some candy for your eyes and in coming days you will see the different stalls and local people dancing in colorful costumes. The sweets I tried were extra size, delicate and flashy in colors.


  1. Great colours, and I know they musts be tasty. I especially like the lower right--raspberries?

    mmm..the blue ones seem interesting!

  6. Kate, I suppose they are raspberry flavored. I only tried tangerine and lemmon, cause my daughter bought some and I didn't want to ransack her bag.-)
    Fay, thanks for the watery comment:)
    Thanks Luggi. I agree with you. I also wonder why.
    John, I think I have helped candy retailers sell some stuff this morning!
    Kris, I think we have the same feel for colors. I definitely prefer those.

  12. Hola Carlos:

    Ha sido un gustazo conocerte. A ver si un día salimos de cacería de fotos. Me gustó la imagen de los chuches, en mi país los llamamos gomas.
