When one thinks of New Orleans, Mardi Gras is the first thing that comes to mind. People love to throw Mardi Gras parties all over the US. So why not utilize Sweet Street’s delivery service for ordering your desserts and make your next Mardi Gras party unforgettable!
Actually, Mardi Gras is about fatted calves, not desserts, and it got its beginning in medieval Europe, not Bourbon Street. America’s first Mardi Gras happened in 1703 but was without all the parades and extravagances we know today. In fact, the first parades are recorded in 1710 and they included the pushing of a bull’s head on wheels, by 16 men aligned with the Boeuf Gras Society.
It wasn’t until later that they paraded with a bull draped in white to signify the Lenten meat fast, known as Fat Tuesday. By the 1830s, the Mardi Gras frivolity we know today was in full force. And in the late 1800s they began to make lithographs of the elaborate float designs to advertise the upcoming parades.
New Orleans is full of rich history both tragic and mystical. Yet, its love for good food and fun are often at the forefront of thought. Research shows that New Orleans residents have a proclivity for pecan pie, like many other southern states. Our Bourbon Street Pecan Pie might make a great Mardi Gras party inclusion. This pie boasts mammoth pecan halves, toasted, and placed in an intoxicating filling replete with Kentucky Bourbon.
Of course, there’s another pecan pie alternative on the Sweet Street menu. Perhaps the Kentucky Pie will capture your guests’ attention. This is the perfect fusion of a warm chocolate chip cookie and a Georgia Pecan Pie. It’s a winner for sure, something that will leave your guests craving more.
