National Jumping Frog Day is May 13th

 Looking for a way to celebrate a Tuesday?

It has been 148 years since Mark Twain published his first truly successful piece of writing. Known originally as Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog, the subsequent The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County is a story that was later, to Twain’s surprise, found to bear a striking resemblance to an ancient Greek tale.

Regardless of his unintentional plagiarism, we find the story charming and clever. We wish that we had known him, and that he had tried our “kikkers.” (Kikker is the dutch name for frogs.) Made with pecans, caramel and chocolate the kikker is Stam’s version of the famous “turtle.”
