What is Paçoca?

Paçoca (Pah-so-Kah) is a popular Brazilian snack. In Tupi it means, “to crumble with hands,” and originally referred to preparing meat and flour with a wood pestle.

Peanuts were introduced to the recipe due to the abundance and nutritional value of the ingredient, and sugar and salt eventually replaced the meat and flour. As a sweet treat that kids of all ages can enjoy, paçoca is now apart of Brazilian daily life, from traditional festivals (like Festa Junina) to simple family gatherings.

Pasokin combines the best part of Brazil’s traditional paçoca—crumbly peanut butter—with all natural, high quality ingredients for a delicious, healthy snack.
