It already seems like the winter holidays were forever ago! But never fear there are a whole bunch of spring holidays coming up. Like Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter. With so many fun things just around the corner you’re probably already thinking about Easter Baskets, gifts for the kids or grandkids, and even plates of desserts to put out for guests. Never fear! Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe is here to help you out!
Mardi Gras began in medieval Europe during the 1600s and the 1700s in France. The tradition was then known as the “the fat calf” and celebrated a massive feast and parade before the start of Lent. This tradition came to the United States after France colonized Louisiana, which is how the New Orleans Mardi Gras festivities of today began. Fast forward to 2017 and the tradition of eating a ton of food and partying hard before Lent is still going strong. And what better way to celebrate the Mardi Gras season than with some delicious chocolate platters from Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe? We have everything you need to throw a Mardi Gras feast! From chocolate covered pretzels to awesome chocolate Mardi Gras masks, which make great party favors.
St. Patrick’s Day is the other festive holiday coming up, and there are sure to be some serious parties around this rather green day. The holiday celebrates the life of Ireland’s patron saint, St. Patrick, who famously drove all the snakes out of Ireland. Today, St. Patrick’s Day is less of a religious feast in honor of the saint, and more of a celebration of Irish culture around the world. Irish potatoes are a must at any St. Paddy’s day party, especially when they have such sweet coconut cream inside! And what St. Patrick’s Day feast would be complete without chocolate leprechaun lollipops? Our answer: none!
After Mardi Gras & St. Patrick’s Day, we’re all about Easter. And, when it comes to Easter, there is one important thing that every parent knows all about, Easter baskets! There is nothing better as a kid than waking up to a basket full of awesome candies and chocolates. Even moms and dads have some fun on Easter, too! Chocolate bunnies are a must, and Suzi’s has a wide variety of sizes and chocolates. All our chocolate is homemade in the store, making it oh so rich and creamy. Looking for something a little different this year? Try a chocolate Easter basket or a chocolate Easter Egg, filled with foil wrapped chocolates. That’s right, a hollow basket made of chocolate! What kid wouldn’t want to eat the basket, too? And if chocolate isn’t your thing, you can also go the candy route. Jellybeans are traditional and awesome and come in assorted fruit flavors.
