::Santos Sabores:: #TeamCanelo ‪#‎SantosSabores‬

 ::Momma Disclosure:: This is a compensated post. All statements are my true and honest opinion. 

Growing up in a Mexican family I have always been about supporting our culture and traditions. My Husband is also a huge sports fan, one of those sports is boxing. I join in as much as I can and truly love to support the sport and of course Mexican fighters; like Canelo.  This year my Husband and I were able to attend the epic fight here in Houston. The young fighter is not only paving the way in boxing arenas, he also co-founded a small business in California. And, not only am I a fan of Mexican sportsmen but also of supporting Hispanic owned businesses.

As an entrepreneur Saul has of course included his roots and his upbringing as a "paletero" or Popsicle maker. Along with co-founder Nelda Sepulveda, they decided to bring an authentic flavor of Mexico to us who can't always make it to our country of origin. I applaud them both for the inception of such a traditional and fun concept!

Another reason why this company is going to be great, the CEO and co-founder, a Mexican-American female entrepreneur. What better way to be an example and empower other women. Thanks to her innovative idea to partner with a Superstar Boxer like Saul, she is now helping run and expand the business.

A little about Nelda:

[Nelda was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco to a Mexican father and an American mother. Since a very young age, Nelda and her two older sisters were raised to be independent women with entrepreneurial mindsets. Nelda instilled these family values into her life early on and has continuously worked hard to accomplish her goals.
As the fourth generation popsicle maker, Nelda decided to follow in her family’s footsteps and bring the popsicle business to the United States. As Nelda considered all aspects of her future business venture, she decided that there was one more necessary component.   
Partnering with “Canelo,” a super pop-star figure, seemed to be the perfect missing piece to her puzzle. Nelda knew that “Canelo” was no stranger to the popsicle business either, ensuring her that their combined expertise would make for a great product.
Nelda spent time developing eight wholesome flavors (pineapple, strawberry, hibiscus, coconut, mango, nut, lime, tamarind) while keeping her eye on healthy ingredients by using her training as a graduate of the San Diego Culinary Institute.  
Nelda’s mission is to trigger a sense of nostalgia through these authentic flavors, prompting consumers to remember their home through their palette. ]
