Why Zitner's: Zitner's has been around since 1922 and is a great Philadelphia tradition around this time of year. We could have put a 'fancy' chocolate with our Queen Maeve blend, but sometimes you just got to roll with nostalgia and honor the past. Zitner's itself was launched by Russian Jewish immigrants named Sam and Ann Zitner.

Story of Maeve

Queen Maeve is Ireland's warrior Queen from the western province of Connacht. It is believed she lived around around 0 to 100 AD and had up to five husbands.

Her most famous battle was the Cattle Raid of Cooley or the Táin Bó Cúailnge. The story of the battle itself was first captured in the 8th century, before appearing in a 12th century manuscript called the Táin. In the old Irish, Maeve's name means "the cause of great joy" or "she who intoxicates".
