Piñatas were always hands-down my favorite parts about attending any party when I was growing up. Piñatas weren’t just a way to pass the time–they were the best things out there because they brought people together, totally got everyone hyped, and, most important, housed a lotof candy. If there was a piñata present, you already knew it was going to be a really good time.
If you’re like me, your version of the piñata is the “old school” version, where everyone lined up holding goody bags and took turns hitting it with a bat or similar object. Well, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I may have just come across something better than a piñata.
