If you think about the moments in which you have felt the most love in your life, surely the memories of the first love make an appearance. Maybe the mind takes you to when you started working at your dream job, and if you have children the birth of each means amazing days. But there was a special feeling that appeared on the chest, which can´t be described.
Defining love or affection universally would be difficult, because every human understands and expresses it in different ways. For some the love looks like a kiss or a hug, for others it is expensive gifts, and for some it takes the form of a candy.
Let’s say that love also looks like a package of paletas payaso that your sister sent you from Mexico to celebrate your birthday, that was her way of saying: I love you.
But love doesn´t borders or is limited to territories, in Colombia looks like an arequipe made by granny to enjoy after the meal, and of course with some Saltín Noel cookies. Maybe your grandmother doesn’t say it, but the fact that she cooks this dessert from scratch shows how much she loves you.
Looking towards the south of the continent this feeling takes the form of dulce de membrillo.
