- IRELAND'S FIRST BRIGADEIRO SHOP -
Brigadeiros & Bragadeiros
Bragadeiros is the first boutique specialised in the production of brigadeiro and other popular Brazilian desserts in Dublin, Ireland.
Jana Braga combined the word “brigadeiro” with her last name "Braga" to create the brand BRAGADEIROS that exists to provide a new experience to all customers.
What's Brigadeiro (Bree-gah-day-ro)?
Brigadeiros is a tradicional treat in Brazil.
The tradicional brigadeiro is made with condensed milk, butter, chocolate and sprinkles. But at our store, you will find a mix of different flavours of this treat, all of them 100% handmade with the finest ingredients used on confectionery and Belgian Chocolate Callebaut.
Brigadeiros can be part of the dessert menu at social gatherings such as birthdays, weddings, corporate events or holiday parties. They are also perfect to be given as gift to someone you care about in special occasions.
Jana Braga is the owner and operator of Bragadeiros and has put her own unique spin on brigadeiros bites by taking her family recipes and Brazilians flavours, to create a natural burst of unique flavours, all made by hand just for her customers.
History of Brigadeiro
In 1939 - 1945 after World War II, Brazil was in campaign time for the election of a new president.
The candidate Eduardo Gomes, whose military rank was Brigadier (brigadeiro), had enormous success among women, which was evidenced by his slogan of the campaign that was "Vote for the Brigadier who is handsome and single!"
Therefore, his most devoted voters decided to try to promote his campaign by organizing parties to raise funds and to give even more visibility to their candidate. Contrary to selling the usual electoral merchandising, they decided to make a candy to be sold in these meetings.
It was created what was then known as "the candy of the Brigadeiro" and was sold during the campaign, trying to achieve votes through the palate of the electorate. The candy was a success, but the candidate turned out not to be elected.
