Best of the USA : 2019 Thanksgiving Collection
As we rapidly approach the holiday season, we know you are going to be bombarded by the likes of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and a whole host of other commercially engineered “holidays”. Before this onslaught Americans are fortunate to celebrate Thanksgiving, a holiday that brings together families and friends over feasts of turkey, pecan pie, pumpkin pie and other fine foods.
As the name suggests, Thanksgiving is about giving thanks, it’s truly national, non-denominational and above all celebrating food with neighbours, friends and especially family on the fourth Thursday of November (so yes we are doing some advance planning here).
From an outside perspective, Thanksgiving is a wonderful occasion. But it’s origin of Thanksgiving is far from straightforward. Despite the attractive story, the first ThanksGiving wasn’t the one celebrated one at Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts in 1621 between the Pilgrim Fathers and the local Wampanaog tribe (earlier “Thanksgivings” can be dated to Virginia in 1607).
Even the choice of the fourth Thursday in November is convoluted. President Abraham Lincoln, at the instigation of Sarah Josepha Hale, decreed the first national “day of thanks” in 1863. But it took the machinations of Presidents Roosevelt in the 1940s to bring all the different states in the US to agree on the fourth Thursday (before then it alternated between the last and penultimate to last Thursday on a state basis).
In keeping with this spirit of giving thanks for great food, we’d invite you to celebrate with a special US Thanksgiving collection of bars that provide a wonderful present and means to enjoy the best of American craft chocolate with your friends and family.
We’ve selected four bars from areas in New England where the first Thanksgivings were celebrated with bars from Fruition (Woodstock, Upstate New York), Raaka (Brooklyn, New York), Good Now (Somerville, Massachusetts) and Boho (Northampton, Massachusetts).
