The Mexican Independence Day is coming to help you swing your mood into a colourful, delicious and vibrant Mexican Fiesta with cocktails and great recipes.
KanKun Sauces were named after Cancun city (Quintana Roo), one of Rolando’s childhood holiday. “I expended wonderful holidays with my brothers and parents in Cancun. Cancun means to me: good food, smiles, sunny, beach, holidays, happiness, chill, freedom, all the great things you can get from a great holiday. Hence I named my Mexican sauces KanKun after Cancun”, says Rolando
For Rolando and many other Mexicans, these spicy fruit snacks are his favourite summer treat, because they are tasty and refreshing. There is something about the chilli spice that brings out the sweetness of the fruit and really makes it zing, especially with slightly acidic fruits like mangos.

There is little better than rolling out the picnic rug and enjoying the beautiful weather with good friends, whilst tucking into some delicious food. Mexican food is simply perfect for picnics, with wraps, burritos and fresh guacamole making an excellent addition to the traditional British foods and flavours.
