We had a few orders for St Patrick's Day. 100 chocolate dipped pretzels sprinkled with shamrocks were ordered for a business lunch with a note saying "We are LUCKY to have people like you..." as a small thank you for a successful new project rollout. 2 sets of cupcakes were ordered as a surprise delivery to friends with the note "we are so LUCKY to have a friend like you..."
