If you’re anything like us, you’re thrilled that it’s cool to start talking about Mardi Gras again, and you’re already planning how to share that excitement.

Maybe you’d like to send a slice of Mardi Gras to your clients. Or maybe you’re even considering making it rain Mardi Gras in your office. Excellent. The Gods of Carnival are pleased by this.

We’re pleased too. That’s why we want to help you through that decision and offer you a Mardi Gras Spirit Special:

  • When you order 50 packages or more, you will receive a dollar off of every package in your shipment.

Is that not enough? Are you a bonafide Mardi Gras Ambassador?

  • When you order 250 packages or more, you’ll receive $2 off every package in your shipment.

And we’re making that deal even better for those of you celebrating the duration of the season!

  • For every bulk order that you place to be delivered between January 6 and January 26, we will take an additional $1 off of each item in the shipment!
    • PLEASE NOTE: If you’re ordering during this window, you must e-mail your spreadsheet to

So, let’s get started! Here’s how to bring the spirit of Mardi Gras into you and your clients’ offices the Haydel’s way: 

Step 1: Pick your perfection!

Select from our delightful selection of King Cakes and Mardi Gras treats which cakes you want for your business partners, co-workers or office. You can mix and match, just let us know how many of each you’d like.

And there’s much more where those came from:

  • Our King of Carnival Packages offer the complete NOLA experience, featuring:
    • The Arthur Hardy Mardi Gras Guide (2018 Edition available Jan. 6, 2018)
    • King Cake history scroll
    • A pack of French Market Coffee
    • Haydel’s Specialty Bead Pack
    • Handcrafted Porcelain Collectible (2018 Edition available Jan. 6, 2018)
    • Mardi Gras CD

  •  Check out the Makin’ Groceries King Cake Package if you’d like to provide the savory side of Mardi Gras as well.
  • The Piece of Cake Package is our most basic. You still get that sweet Haydel’s goodness, along with a few of our featured items from the other packages: the handcrafted porcelain collectible, and the royal scroll detailing the King Cake’s history.

As you can see, you have eight different flavors to choose from! Be sure to find your clients’ favorites and write down those item numbers.
