The World Series: Brazil

Olá, oi! In our World Series, we profile 15 products from a country that we think capture that nation’s culture and lifestyle. Today: Brazil.

The largest country in Latin/South America, Brazil has a unique culture. It is the only country in South America that speaks Portuguese. Brazil is full of family lifestyle, big dinners and a touch of relaxed vibes. We hope this collection of Brazilian items will remind our Brazilian shoppers of home and intrigue others to visit the wonderful country some day. From a range of Guarana to the most popular Brazilian-made flip flops, you can find it on Baopals.

Guarana, 350ml

Guarana is the first thing that comes to mind when we think of Brazilian taste. The fruit grows widely in Brazil and its unique flavor is captured in this popular soda.

Brasile Illy Coffee, 250g

Coffee is a normal part of the daily routine, but that amazing flavour is what makes it a good day. Keep those early morning memories and get energy in a great way.

CACHACA, 700ml

A bit of a different drink, but still a top priority. This is the base alcohol for caipirinha, Brazil's national cocktail! Get your Churrasco vibes ready with this tasty treat. Here's the quick recipe, and halfway through don't forget to top up with another 1/2 shot.

Tapioca Powder, 1kg

You no longer have to go without tapioca again. Put the powder in a bowl and add 1/3 cups of water. Slowly add a bit more as you stir. Break up any clumps. Once it is a chalk-like texture, get a sieve (to filter powder) and put it into a container. Put the fine tapioca in a pan on medium heat, wait for it to melt into a harder pancake, then flip. Add butter and cheese for a salty flavor, or add condensed milk for a sweet flavor. Enjoy!

Black Beans 500g

Soak the beans overnight. Add the drained beans to a pressure cooker with 1 cup of beans to 2 cups of water. Be careful with the pressure cooker. Cook for 1-2 hours or until soft. Add chopped garlic, diced onion, salt or any other seasoning you like. You can make extra and freeze it for any time. Add to warm rice and you are good to go.

Pāo De Queijo, 300g

Pāo De Queijo is that taste of happiness. Any problems could be easily fixed with this product. Fell off your bike? Got a bad grade? All answers point to Pāo De Queijo. Follow the instructions on the back and everything will be okay.

Your Handy Guide to Brazilian Brigadeiro

Everything you need for this delicious Brazilian dessert can be found on Baopals and delivered to your door.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 big big spoonful of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of chocolate powder

Method:

1. Combine all ingredients in a pot.
2. Turn on the hob on medium to high heat. Mix like your life depends on it.
3. The mixture will rise, and then fall. Once it is thick you are done.
4. Put the Brigadeiro in a glass bowl and wait until cooled. Once cooled you can get a spoon and eat, or add water to your hands and roll into tiny balls. The balls can also be rolled in sprinkles for that extra touch.

Enjoy!
