The right to vote, however, is deeply rooted in our brigadeiro tradition. Rumor has it that the original Brazilian truffle, today our dear Brigadeiro originated during a Brazilian election back in the 1940s. History has it that the name "Brigadeiro" was coined after a Brazilian general, Sir. Eduardo Gomes. The position of General in Portuguese is "Brigadeir". As Mr. Brigadeir Gomes began running his political campaign, his supporters began making these delightful Brazilian chocolate truffles as a tribute. He not only won the election, but also the hearts of the people through their stomachs.
This year, things are different, but it doesn't mean we shouldn't celebrate! Instead, we should ignite the holiday spirit and what better way to start than with Halloween? We love the spooky, mystic and magical aura of Halloween. This year, let us bring the holidays to your home through our holiday inspired brigaderio boxes.
As we enter the Fall season here on the East Coast, we all have our own memories. For us, as temperatures drop a bit, we start to think of foods that warm us up and holiday gatherings. Which is why we created the Pie Box. A mix of apple and pumpkin pie, each reminiscent of a family gathering or a Thanksgiving spread. Whatever memory it evokes, we want it to be meaningful to you.
