Speaking of Saint Patrick, (Shout out to him for all of the festivities), he is the patron saint of Ireland and every year on March 17th, the date of his death,  a cultural and religious celebration is held.  It was officially made a Christian Feast day in the early 17th century and it commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.  Man have things changed since then. There are formal gatherings and banquets but the biggin is the parades. St Patrick’s Day parades began in North America in the 18th century but believe it or not, they did not reach Ireland until the 20th. Some Christians attend church services and good news everyone! Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day (cough Bailey’s cheesecake).  This is probably because of how whiskey plays a role in the celebrations. There is a custom called “drowning the shamrock” which was popular in Ireland where at the end of celebrations, a shamrock was placed into the bottom of a cup and was then filled with whiskey. It was then drunk as a toast to not only St. Patrick but to Ireland and everyone present.  What happens to the shamrock? Well, people would either just swallow it or toss it over their shoulder for good luck. Alcohol kills germs, right? Now look at us! Parades, shamrocks, beads, face paint and green beer everywhere! Don’t forget to stock up on those baked goods. You’ll probably need them to soak up the alcohol and let’s face it, anything goes with whiskey, right?

Poppie’s is the place to be this Saint Patrick’s Day because we’re also rolling out mint chocolate covered sandwich cookies, chocolate ganache tarts with the cutest shamrock stamp on top, cake pops and did I mention the cupcakes? Vanilla or chocolate cupcakes topped with green mint buttercream and half of a sandwich cookie and chocolate drizzle will have everyone doing a jig for more! If anything, your breath will stay fresh with all of this cool mint action. Taste a little happiness this Saint Patrick’s Day.
