Magyar Marketing Newsletter #126

Welcome! Isten Hozott!

February 2017

“It was such a blessing to receive your catalog! I am going to keep it forever!”

Ildiko recently received our catalog in the mail and called to place an order. We spent a few minutes talking about when she came to the U.S. from Transylvania over 40 years ago and settled in Missouri.  Even though she has been here since 1974, her love for her Hungarian heritage runs deep and she continues to share it with her adult children. You can take the girl out of her homeland but you can’t take the homeland out of the girl! Do you know of someone who loves his or her Hungarian heritage? Please forward this newsletter to them or let them know about us!

International Folk Festivals

One of my fondest memories growing up in Youngstown, Ohio were the years of the International Folk Festivals that happened at Stambaugh Auditorium and Idora Park. Each country represented had their own booth and they could have a display that introduced their country to the guests through folk art, photographs, traditional costumes, food, language, music, etc. There was also a stage where dance groups could perform. Do you have something like this in your community? If you do, support this event and take your family, friends, and neighbors along! It is a great way to learn about and celebrate many cultures in a budget friendly way! One item that was always at the “Hungary” booth were the mézeskalács, pictured here.

Looking for Pogácsa? Pozsonyi Kifli? Beigli?

We won’t be shipping these customer favorites after Easter so be sure to stock up now! These are wonderful treats with a cup of coffee or tea! Invite a friend over for a great conversation or send a gift to someone you miss! Please call me at 1-800-786-7851 to order the pogácsa or pozsonyi kifli but if you just want the beigli/kalács, it can be ordered from our website.


A Kalocsai Torta

Have you seen photos of cakes decorated with Hungarian folk-art style fondant? Have you ever created one? I haven’t tried to do it yet but I do know a few cake decorators who can pull it off. I am looking forward to using the step-by-step instructions outlined here and creating one this year! If you have done this type of project and you are willing to share your results (either success or failure) please send them to me at so we can learn from one another’s successes and failures!



International Book Giving Day

We love books and many of our titles are already on sale but did you know that February 14th is also International Book Giving Day?

So you can share a little extra love, for the month of February we will include a complimentary sampler set of our Hungarian themed temporary tattoos with every children’s book purchased and for each adult book ordered we will include a free oval car sticker. Check out our selection!
