Bring Prosperity Into the New Year

Order your large size, ready to eat Black Eyed Peas or Collard Greens for $10

“Southern U.S. tradition dictates that eating black eyed peas on New Year’s will bring luck and good fortune. Often served with cabbage or collard greens (meant to represent that dolla dolla bill, y’all), black eyed peas are seen as symbolic stand-ins for coins and financial prosperity. So if you want to make it rain this new year, you had better eat up all these delicious beans, ” Delish, December 2020
