Guguria is a much-loved local treat that is sometimes called “the Chamorro jawbreaker.” These small, hard, deep-fried and sugarcoated cookies are made with just three ingredients: flour, sugar and coconut milk. Since 1965, Mariquita “Tita” Leon Guerrero has been making guguria using a family recipe that was passed down from her grandmother.
Tita’s Guguria is one of the most recognizable and best-selling Made on Guam products. It is a popular gift item among both tourists and locals and can be found in convenience stores and supermarkets such as Pay-Less and upscale shopping houses such as T-Galleria Guam.
