2016 Calandro’s King Cake Information Roundup!

2016 Calandro’s King Cake Information Roundup!

It’s Mardi Gras.  And that means KING CAKE! The celebration between the Epiphany and Fat Tuesday (the day before Lent starts) when Justice, Faith, and Power is represented by Purple, Green, and Gold (respectively).  When carnivals, parades, balls, and just general partying of all sorts occurs in Louisiana - especially South Louisiana.  When the Louisiana national pastime of French Creole drinks and eats is magnified into just a few short months of the year.  And what most embodies this special season, Louisiana’s amazingly unique and wonderful food, and our penchant here for eating that food than… King Cake! And there’s lots of it…everywhere.  In 2015, we saw home bakeries, commercial bakeries, local grocery stores, big chain stores (ugh), donut shops, cupcake bakers, etc. all getting into the mix of making their own versions, styles, and takeoffs of the Louisiana Mardi Gras delicacy: King Cakes.  In fact, last year NOLA.com put together an interactive 2015 King Cake Guide and Map for Baton Rouge where you can check out all that our area has to offer in the way of King Cakes (Check out our video from NOLA.com’s guide below.) And in 2016 - its only gotten more creative and competitive out there.  As the sheer amount and creativity of Mardi Gras King Cakes in Baton Rouge evolves and grows, its actually good for us and GREAT for you.  It forces Calandro’s to stay ahead, up our game, and generally just ROCK with King Cakes even more than in the past.  So check out below for all of the details on Calandro’s King Cakes, and just how we’ve upped our King Cake game in 2016!...

Happy New Year 2016! (with a Video)

  To close out 2015… …a little video we did with Jay Ducote (jayducote.com | biteandbooze.com), created by Tommy Talley and his amazingly creative tommysTV (tommys.tv) crew. Thanks so much to both of you for doing this with us, to your incredible teams (Blair, Sydney, & Chuck and Jordan, Josh, Fred, Clay & Theo) for their work and support on this project (all around our great State of Louisiana), and personally for being such loyal customers, partners, and, most importantly, friends of our stores and our family. If you haven’t checked us out lately (or ever - for shame!) take a look at the video below and then don’t take our word for it - take Jay’s. We’d love to have you as part of our family too… #Relationships #ServiceQualitySelection #Since1941 #HappyNewYear #Hello75YearsInBusiness (And hey - if you have a moment, let us know what you think of the video in the comments section...
