Did you know your neighborhood Food Town is also your go-to for piñatas, Houston? It’s true! In addition to quality meats, fresh produce and frozen treats you need for your family fiestas, we’ve got piñatas, too! These festive finds are located inside each of our Houston-area grocery stores, usually high above the aisles to help inspire smiles while you shop.
They say the tradition of the piñata dates way (way) back — by about 700 years — to Asia, where folks used them to ring in the new year. Later, when explorer extraordinaire Marco Polo caught wind of the fun, he took piñatas right along with him on his travels, first to Italy, and then Spain. Today, you can find piñatas all over the place (including your Food Town) and in every imaginable size, shape and color!
Of course, just as there are a million different types of piñatas out there, there are a million ways to put them to good use. (Even during times like COVID-19, where most group gatherings are at a halt.) Here are just a few great suggestions from your friends at Food Town:
There are tons of reasons we love piñatas, Houston. They’re a fun (and easy) activity that brings the whole bunch together at a bash, and they instantly make any space more festive. Stop by your nearest Food Town, to shop piñatas, filler candy and sticks, too! (Not to mention everything else on your shopping list.) Fiesta on, amigos — we’ll see you soon!
