All of us have been eating the same candy and bird-shaped marshmallows for too long. It’s time to change that. Instead of defaulting to the same Easter candy that you’ve bought for the last 10 years, switch to some satisfying Black-owned sweet treats.
No matter your preference, there’s the perfect candy for everyone. The vegan cousin, Kosher friend and the one uncle that can eat anything can all come together this Easter to snack on one of these treats on Easter.
Kanda’s Dark Chocolate Minis
Kanda’s 56 percent Ghana Cocoa Dark Chocolate Minis are individually wrapped nuggets of delicious fair-trade chocolate. The pack of five dark chocolates are also vegan.
Founded by Karen M. Blackwell, Kanda Chocolates does good for your taste buds as well as for communities in Ghana and the environment. The candy company donates 10 percent of proceeds to charitable organizations. All of the chocolate sourced for the brand’s items are fair-trade.
This Easter, pop these Black-owned sweet treats in an Easter egg, an Easter basket or directly into your Easter-celebrating mouth.
There’s nothing better than homemade baked goods; however, a family-owned recipe can come close.
During an appearance on QVC, Anwar Allen mentioned that he learned how to make Scottish shortbread from his wife’s grandmother. In this 10 pack ultimate sampler by Allens Shortbread, you’ll get to taste all of the different flavors Allen and his team work on.
From traditional shortbread to rose-vanilla-lemon wedding, these Black-owned sweet treats will have a flavor that suits everyone’s taste buds at the Easter table.
Partake’s Mini Cookies
If you wish to partake in eating Black-owned sweet treats before the family comes over for Easter, then this is the snack for you. Grab a pouch for yourself, then put the rest in everyone’s Easter baskets. Each pack of these vegan, gluten-free and OU-D Kosher cookies is adorned with Avengers logos and characters.
Inspired by her own daughter, Denise Woodward created Partake to offer allergy-friendly foods to children. With her line of delicious snacks, Woodward also founded Black Futures in Food & Beverage to uplift and educate future Black culinary talent at participating HBCUs.
