A Sweet St. Patrick’s Day Treat: Irish Potato Candy

Stutz St. Patrick's Day CandyAlthough people all over the world celebrate on the 17th day of March in honor of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, the revelry and tradition of the day is purely an American invention. Irish-Americans invented St. Patrick’s Day as a way to confirm ethnic identity and to create bonds of solidarity. The first publicly celebrated St. Patrick’s Day was in 1737 Boston, where a large population of Irish immigrants resided.

It is frequently said that on St. Patrick’s Day everyone is Irish −and like any holiday worth it’s weight in green brew, this holiday it rich in traditional food. In Ireland, the day is usually celebrated by eating food such as pink bacon or savory roast chicken. Lamb stew accompanied by traditional Irish soda bread, bangers and mash and Shepherd’s Pie are other tasty ways to celebrate authentically. Surprisingly, corned beef and cabbage is more of an Irish-American tradition than an authentically Irish one.

Paddy’s Day Spuds – A local St. Patrick’s Day favorite and tradition!

Irish potato candy is an example of a St. Patrick’s Day tradition that is not authentically Irish. Rather, Irish potato candy is a Philadelphia-based confection that, despite its name, is not from Ireland, nor does it usually contain any potato. Irish potato candy is typically made of a blend of coconut, confectioner’s sugar, vanilla, and cream cheese that is rolled in cinnamon on the outside, making them look like small potatoes. The original creator hoped to erase the awful memories of the Great Irish Potato Famine of the mid 1800s by creating the candy concoctions that looks like real miniature potatoes.

Dark chocolate can be healthier than you think, while still being delicious.

As we get deeper into the first month of the new year, the natural question we ask others and ourselves is “what is your New Year’s resolution? Of the top ten New Year’s resolutions of Americans, according to statisticbrain.com, number four and five are “Enjoy Life to the Fullest” and “Stay Fit and Healthy” respectively. Americans seem intent on improving mental wellbeing, including thinking positively, laughing more, and enjoying life, and at the same time getting physically healthier, including reducing the signs of aging and decreasing the risk for cancer.

If only there was one thing, a magic ingredient, that can help achieve both mental and physical wellness goals. Could such an elixir actually exist?

The short answer is a resounding “Yes!”

Dark chocolate has recently been discovered to have a number of health benefits—both physical and mental. The basic ingredients of dark chocolate include cacao beans containing resveratrol, an antioxidant also found in red wine. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which are destructive molecules that are implicated in heart disease and other ailments.
