Missing the quince cheese of native land, the portuguese immigrants adapted the recipe with a fruit too abundant in Brazil; the guava. The chopped fruit combined with sugar is cooked in a copper cauldron until
make the goiabada (guava paste) that could be creamy, to eat with spoon, to cut, served as a firm candy or the cascão goiabada that is made with coarsely chopped guava.
With Bulgarian influence the cheese came together with the goiabada. Later, a advertising campaign of Cica, Maurício de Souza called the cheese Romeo and the goiabada Juliet. The advertisement was so successful that even today every dessert that brings both ingredients is named Romeo and Juliet. Pies, cheesecakes, cakes, puddings and flans, ice creams, mousses, rolls are some options that you can find called Romeo and Juliet.
