The logo of the Macabeos de Trujillo Alto: a golden bold block "TA" bordered in indigo, on a white circle bordered in indigo and then gold.

Trujillo Alto Fritters

Given a choice of fritter, most Puerto Ricans opt for the easier alcapurria with its more stable dough, composed of multiple starches—but Trujillo Alto maintains the proud artisanal tradition of the purely plantain-based macabeo.

Mascot: Fritiguana

(frito “fried” + iguana “iguana”)

The name of the game with Fritiguana, the mascot of the Macabeos de Trujillo Alto, is absolute placidity. That's how you handle being a big gold iguana with a blue head, gold eyes, a blue-and-white striped tail, and dumplings—delicious, golden-brown fried dumplings—for spikes along your back. I mean, that's like if we all walked around with visible vertebrae that just also happened to be French fries.
