There has been an emerging campaign to save real-life bunnies from been giving away as Easter gifts. Parents...and kids are suffering from chocolate bunny fatigue and cheap jelly beans are being replaced by "Easter Toys," a promised do-over for those who missed Christmas.
Well, here's a bit of nostalgia that both the parent and the kid can be celebrate for almost an exact month...the Happy 75th Birthday Nestle Crunch Contest. It's "America's Best Bakeries Face-Off," Nestle Crunch's idea of a candy throwdown.
This past Wednesday afternoon in Beverly Hills, Sweet E’s Bake Shop hosted the birthday party/contest. They also played host to numerous Los Angeles bakeries and an hip ice cream truck/shop, CoolHaus. When given copious supply of Nestle Crunch, they whip up some really mouth-watering confections to compete in the contest.
Since last Wednesday until Sunday, April 21st, the participating confectionery shops will sell their Nestle Crunch confections to the general public. From there, the public will vote at https://www.facebook.com/nestlecrunch/app_129141067268027, on their favorite Nestle Crunch treat.
This is a nationwide celebration and contest with Dallas', Chicago's, Houston's, San Francisco's, Boston's, Culver City's best bakeries competing in making their interpretation of the Nestle Crunch Dessert.
Actress Casey Reinhardt and owner of Casey’s Cupcakes went all out by topping her cupcakes with sparklers and candied Crunch Bars rolled and coated in edible blue glitter.
Due to its "melt-ability," the party guests had no choice but to "lunch" on CoolHaus' Nestle Crunch™ Brown Butter Candied Bacon Ice Cream Sandwiches. It was an healthy choice of dairy and meat protein, calicum, and chocolate flavoroids.
Crumbs Cupcakes did their own versions of the Nestle Crunch Cupcake. The party hosts,
Sweet E’s Bake Shop, did Nestle Crunch Bits Brownies.
Easter and Passover come each and every year. Nestle Crunch's 75th Birthday doesn't.
So, once Passover has "passed over," and Easter is nothing but a distant pastel memory, why don't you hit the best bakeries in LA, Chicago, San Fran, and Dallas, celebrate Nestle Crunch's birthday then pick which dessert is your favorite.
This decadent holiday is a very rare treat, enjoy it while you can.
