Here Are 24 Gifts For Your Pan Dulce-Obsessed Self

ADVERTISEMENT

Pan dulce isn’t just an obsession; it’s a way of life and my Latina sweet tooth is here for it. Sometimes, we forget that we’re *worth* treating ourselves to pan dulce in all its forms. Here’s 24 ways to treat yo’self or your pan dulce obsessed friend:

Pencils

If you’re writing with a pencil, you’re probably taking a scantron test, in which case, you need ‘Concha Power’ to push you through. Personally, ‘self-conchas’ isn’t even in my vocab so I wear these guys behind my ear like a lady boss.

 

Dad Hats

Wear your heart on your sleeve, your concha on your hat, and do it all with this one dad hat. Catch me walking into every wedding with this hat so you know what I’m really here for.

I won’t gamble on any other sweets, so why would I gamble on my car decór?! Concha dice for my rearview drive, dalé!

I’ve been waiting 3 years to decorate my apartment and I think I finally found what I was looking for. I’ll be celebrating conchas for the next 3 years. Or you can be a normal person and just whip these out for actual festivities.

Pan dulce fan?! Guilty as charged, Major Crimes Division. Sew this bad boy on all your other dad hats so you can switch up your look.

Do I even need to say anything here? I’m just praying that somewhere, in a land far, far away from my waistline, there’s a Magic Castle made of pan dulce, topped with a crown churro.

 

 

Workout Tees

I won’t workout for my health, for girls, or for looks, but this shirt scores a 2 out of 3 in my books. Either way, I’m eating pan dulce.

 

Motivational Posters

Mantra. The French brought conchas to Mexico and Mexican bakers made them even better, like Mexicanos do. I don’t know if that’s what this motivational poster artist had in mind, but that’s the kind of inspiration I need to eat my way through this borderline dictatorship. Let your conchas be your guide.

I don’t know why the marranitos are shaped like little pigs, but my guess is that the best pan dulce is so sweet with a little bit of spice, that it had to take a shape of its own. And I eat those suckers like a pig.

These are great because now, you can finally continuously scroll through your feminista af IG feed on one hand while eating pan dulce the other. Find them in your favorite flava flave.

 

Keychains

Keep losing your conchas keys? Attach a concha to them and you’ll never lose them again. #NoConchaLeftBehind

 

Tumblers

Ok, I don’t know a single person who owns a tumbler, but I’m willing to go Florida Panhandle tacky for the conchas. I mean, “I like big conchas and I cannot lie”?! I’m here for it!

 

Tote bags

I don’t care what you say about tote bags, mine has a marranito on it AND it’s saving the planet. Get one!

 

Retro Tee

It’s Stranger Things mixed with my favorite breakfast food, and helps anyone talking to me get straight to the point. “Sorry, como? I’m thinking about pan dulce.”

 

“Payaso” Coin Purse

If I have any spare change that hasn’t gone to pan dulce, I keep it here. More often, I’m pulling change from the purse than putting it in.

 

“Niño Envuelto” Coin Purse

It’s a jelly roll pan dulce! It’s so cute, I’m about to just spend what’s left in my coinpurse for this one too. You can never have enough coin purses. The better to fit in my backpack…

 

Backpack

Yup. That’s a concha backpack, and you better bet it’s stuffed to the brim with conchasmarranitos, campechanas y orejas. And that I need the backpack to free up my hands, which are (you guessed it) holding a concha pop socket phone and a full-fledged concha.

Pan dulce is our mother f*cking heritage, people. It’s our moral obligation, to our ancestors, to show our appreciation… via pan dulce shaped gifts to ourselves. We’ll pass it down so our nietos can sell it on their Etsy accounts. 😉

 

Heart Earrings

Concha heart shaped earrings?! Please hold while I wipe a tear from my eye and tuck my hair behind my ear. Y’know, so you can see my concha swag.

 

Cardigan Pins

Are you forced to wear cardigans to your school or work? Do you feel depressed by the inability to express your true self? Finally, a product that will bring all your passions and interests in one single pin! Wear it proud, mi amigo, you’re reppin’ pan dulce now.

A little wall art, anyone? If you’re redecorating a room in your home and need something for those bare walls, this is perfect for you. The little elote is killing me.

 

Rings

Talk about that bling bling! Obsessed doesn’t even begin to describe my feelings on these rings.

 

Stickers

Truly, I need no other stickers. What’s my plan for today? Conchas for breakfast, orejas for second breakfast, cochitos for lunch, wedding cookies for second lunch…

Because what’s a concha without some café con leche? It’s still the greatest thing in the whole world, I’ll admit.
