Fretzels – More Than Just A Pretzel

Look Out Chocolate Bunnies, The Chocolate Duck Is Coming To Town

ChickWhile everyone who celebrates Easter looks forward to the oh so delicious chocolate bunny in or next to their Easter basket, it is also exciting to find unique counterparts to the illustrious rabbit. After attending The I Love Chocolate Fest held at the All Star Arena in Farmingdale, we noticed a table filled with not only mouth-watering chocolate bunnies, but also some other eye-catching Easter Candy.

The Chocolate Duck located in Farmingdale is a shop devoted to everything chocolate! Their adorable chocolate covered Oreo chick and Easter egg  made a lasting impression on us. However, the most eye appealing item had to be their innovative jelly bean pie. This chocolately pie tasted even better than it looked. Although chocolate bunnies are a well known part of Easter, it is always a good idea to add a Chocolate Duck in there to change things up.


KranzKreations Create Something Sweet

As the story goes, an Italian teaching monk was preparing bread when he decided to cut some of the dough into thin strips. He made a circle with a strip then took the ends of the strip brought them to the center, gave them a quick twist and set it down over the center of the strip. He believed it was like folding his arms when he prayed. At the end of each day the monk would give one to each student who had recited their prayers. He named these tiny breads Pretida which translates to "little reward". The Pretzel Princess, a division of Kranz Kreations, shares their own "little rewards" online or by calling (845) 856-2368.

This chocolate covered apple easily satisfies that salty-sweet craving. You can find this delectable creation on  ThePretzelPrincess  website which is a division of Kranz Kreations!

Have A Drink With Dirty Sue

DirtySue

Dirty Sue is twice-filtered olive juice brine made from premium olives and comes in an attractive bottle made to be stored alongside other bar staples such as Rose's Lime Juice, sweet & sour and grenadine. It allows bartenders to simply grab and pour, instead of the spooning, scooping and handling of that industrial size jar of olives that sits behind the bar. As any martini lover knows, the brine all-too-often gets used up before the olives do, leaving the olives to rot and go to waste. For more information visit Dirty Sue.
