Brigadeiro is a Brazilian sweet treat that was created by a group of ladies in the 1940’s.
They named their delicacy after a renowned Brazilian politician of the 1940’s,
Brigadier Eduardo Gomes. They passed out the Brigadeiros to encourage people to find favor in the Brigadier. Brigadier Eduardo Gomes was tall, dark and handsome, with piercing blue eyes, and he was SINGLE!!
Despite his outstanding physical attributes and his being an Air Force brigadier general (who gained notoriety for playing a part in quashing a communist coup in Rio), he could not win the presidency in either 1946 or 1950….though he did win the hearts of most Brazilian women.
