Brazilian Munchies – The Real Taste of Brazil!
Pão de Queijo, Brigadeiros, Empadas, Beijinhos, Esfihas, Camafeus! If you know them, you miss them! If you’re new to them, prepare to love them!
Flavia and Nicholas Barger met in Uberlandia in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais while he was in an exchange program with Rotary International. Naturally, he fell for Brazil’s local treats — pão de queijo, coxinha, and empadinha among others — and Flavia as well!
In 2013, Flavia moved to the US to marry Nicholas, and so he was reunited with Flavia… but not his newly favorite munchies. Of course, she missed her snacks from home too. No problem! Nicholas dug out a recipe he obtained during his visit to Brazil, and whipped up some pão de queijo.
As they indulged and reminisced, a Brazilian friend suggested that other Brazilians probably miss their cheese breads and native tidbits as well. Maybe Nicholas and Flavia could sell pão de queijo to other expatriate Brazilians in the State College, PA area. They did just that!
It was then that they had an epiphany: given the chance to taste them, wouldn’t Americans fall for Brazilian munchies too? And so they decided to bring pão de queijo to a farmers’ market in Millheim PA.
And they found themselves in business.
Before long, Flavia devoted herself exclusively to Brazilian Munchies. She expanded their offerings by stuffing pão de queijo with smoked sausage and cheddar cheese. Making every single cheese bread ball by hand, the Bargers’ overworked fingers couldn’t keep up with surging demand. They invested in their new company and imported equipment from Brazil to augment supply and begin offering their goodies wholesale.
Today, the Brazilian Munchies selection has ballooned to cover two separate menus! Coxinha, Esfiha, Kibe, Pão de Queijo, and more fill out the savory menu, while Brigadeiros, Beijinhos and Camafeu make up a delectable (and addictive!) sweet menu.
You can discover for yourself what Nicholas and so many Pennsylvanians have learned — that yumminess is alive and well south of the Equator! — by coming to one of the many events Brazilian Munchies will be at this summer, and tasting for yourself!
