Authentic Jamaican Candy

Recommended Posts

Hi!  We would like to put Jamaican candy in our OOT bags, does anyone have any suggestions? 

And also, has anyone picked anything up from the supermarket once they got there?

i don't know of any 'jamaican' candy, per se..now i know they have drinks like ginger beer and red stripe but i don't know of 'candy' per se..i'm eager to hear what folks have to say on this one.

 

i've NEVER visited a supermarket on any of my trips to jamaica...not sure if that's really 'feasible'..but maybe other brides will have an opinion..i look forward to viewing comments.

There are alot of jamaican candiesi cant think of too many right now)

It should be easy enough to make a trip to a supermarket and browse the candy/ sweetie aisle. Every major area has a big supermarket. And they r cheap!

 

A couple unique candies :  Ginger chews, Coconut drops,  Tamarind Balls, Bustamante Backbone, Paradise Plums

I say u head to the store n browse

I've been to Hi-Lo Supermarket, which is a major chain in Jamaica. There is a Hi-Lo less than 10 minutes from Montego Airport. I didn't buy any candy (I bought mostly Red Stripe!), but they have everything you can think of there. If you can, stop there after you arrive at the airport and browse.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
