This week on Historically Black Friday – The Yin and the Yang

Rose Mary's Pralines

This week on Historically-Black Friday we ordered and received our order of pecan pralines, from Rose Mary’s Pralines.

The Yin.

Rose Mary's Pralines

I’m not a huge candy guy. I think the only time I’ve ever had pralines was in ice cream. But with Valentine’s Day approaching and having read the history of the recipe and seeing the beautiful photos I had to give them a try. The first word that comes to mind is decadent. They’re on the luxury end of the candy spectrum according to taste, and are absolutely made to be shared.

They’re made by Howard alum, Louisiana native, Greg Mundy according to his mother’s recipe, and named accordingly.

The Yang…

If we’re going to talk about candy this week, we should also talk about a few alumni who can help us balance the equation.
