Eid Treat Bags: Sweet and Simple

custom wrapped eid chocolate bars

This Eid my husband was out of town, 3 weeks total, and I was to fend for myself with three young children alone on the Eid.  I survived.  Someone give me a t-shirt. Every Eid brings about a new style of Eid treat bag.

The grand finale is the Arabic meal prepared and served by some of the parents from the school. It’s a big deal. This was my first year experiencing it as it is Jenin’s first … Continue reading

This survey was developed exclusively for USA based Muslims to gain important insight into our specific Muslim needs in categories such as food, finance, and other select sectors.  With our buying power, we have the potential to attract the eye of large mainstream companies that have long neglected Muslim consumers.  But only if you take the … Continue reading
