Quito Food Tour Part III: The candy nut maker - "colocaciones"

Santiago took me next to see the historic maker of "colocaciones," a type of sugar coated roasted peanut. This man's family has been doing this for years and he's apparently quite well known. He's just down the street from the Church of San Francisco, a huge structure with a large open court where I attended a couple of concerts, including one with fireworks.

The "colocaciones" are made on a  narrow street with other interesting shops. Here are a few photos I took:
