Familia Del Alto
!Órale! Déjame te cuento how this all came about.
Growing up in the Midwest with a very traditional Mexican family: we spoke English at school and Spanish at home, we ate pizza on a lucky Friday (thank you Pizza Hut Book It) and enchiladas con arroz at home. I grew up with a deep appreciation for Latin American culture, language and flavors. I dreamed of living in Mexico and experiencing first-hand all the things my mom and abuelita would tell me about. The opportunity finally came when my husband Fernando and I moved to Querétaro, Qro. I took a job in international business selling beef to Mexican distributors and my dream came true! Fearless and un poco loca, that's me! ~ Magda
Great things happened to us in Mexico. Our daughter Sarita was born a year after our arrival. It must have been the water or las chelas, right? I discovered a very cool candy store there and hoped that we could have something similar back home. Even years after returning to Kansas and after the birth of our son Aarón, I still couldn't get over the idea of bringing the candy store to life, but throwing in a bit of the U.S. and creativity also into the mix. This is how Señor Munchies came to be. I hope you like it as much as we do! We seek to celebrate and share the Latino cultura with love and pride.
