Nothing Says February in Mexico Like Star Wars-Themed Tamales

These beauties are the creation of Super Roscas, a Mexico City pastry shop and come in several flavors: Baby, Chuby, Oscuro, Arturo and Tamalorian

Remember the Baby Yoda Rosca de Reyes? Well, it was only a matter of time until a very creative Mexican entrepreneur came up with the February-Candelaria Tamalorian sequel.

Let me explain. Many of you might not know that Candlemas (i.e. El Día de la Candelaria) is celebrated each February in Mexico by dressing up Baby Jesus and eating tamales like there is no tomorrow. Said tamales (mind you) are supposed to be provided by the same person who got the plastic Baby Jesus in their rosca on January 6.

I know, it’s … complicated, but bear with me.

The point I’m trying to make is that there is a new Star Wars-themed Rosca-Candelaria kid in town: Meet the Tamalorian, the galactic offspring of Baby Yoda Rosca de Reyes, inspired in your favorite Mandalorian character.
