Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is coming January 19. There’s increased interest in the man behind the holiday this year thanks to the acclaimed new film Selma.
Selma dramatizes the protest marches from Selma, Ala., to Montgomery, Ala., that led to the 1965 Voting Rights Act. The movie is a Golden Globe nominee for best motion picture, best actor, and best director.
We did a little research and found that King’s favorite food was pecan pie. That’s not surprising. My family’s from the south too and we love pecan pie.
At Fairytale Brownies, we feature pecans in three of our gourmet cookie and brownie gifts.
Our Pecan Brownie gifts burst with handfuls of fresh, crunchy pecan halves. They’re available as full-size Fairytale Brownies or snack-size Fairytale Sprites.
Topped by a layer of chopped pecans, our Pecan Blondie Bars deliver the perfect blend of moist cake and satisfying crunch.
And our Caramel Pecan Cookies combine organic vanilla extract, buttery caramel, and premium pecans to pair chewy and crunchy in one gourmet cookie.
Next week, honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day how you like. Check out Selma at a theater near you or just enjoy some gourmet cookie or brownie gifts with pecans this month.
