Juneteenth

Today we celebrate #Juneteenth, a day to commemorate the abolishment of slavery and freedom in the U.S. in 1865. Let’s work together and  continue to grow, educate and make a change for the better. 
 
This year we wanted to celebrate #juneteenth and represent the community in ways we believe you’ll enjoy. 
 
Thats why on June 19th, we’ll be offering a #BUYONEGETONEFREE deal for our Strawberry Shortcake slice 🍓 
 
Here’s a little history on it: 
“When slaves were made aware that they were free, they had a celebration. They celebrated with everything that was red in order to symbolize the blood that was shed by the slaves. This included watermelon, barbecue, and even a strawberry drink. The strawberry beverage had previously been reserved for slave owners and slaves were not allowed to have it. When they found out that they were free slaves, they then decided that this was their chance, this was their opportunity to celebrate, and so, they began to partake in drinking the strawberry beverage.” 
 
Now, we don’t offer strawberry beverages, but we hope that our strawberry shortcake will serve as a promising representation and reminder of this upcoming day of freedom 🙌🏽 Happy Juneteenth!!!
