Fourth of July is a lively national holiday that all Americans enjoy partaking in. We love celebrating the independence of our country and all the fun customs that come along with it.

Here at Labor 411, we know festivities are starting and you’ll be looking for something easy and delicious to bring to a BBQ or gathering. We’ve come up with a fun and delicious recipe for patriotic cupcakes that you can get really creative with!

As always, our recipes are designed to be prepared with union-made ingredients and support unionized grocery stores.

Friday is the Fourth of July and we are ready to celebrate our country’s birthday with some great union-made, American-made products! If you need a flag to hang this weekend or any other day of the year, we’ve got ’em. Snacks and drinks? We’ve put together a red, white and blue list of goodies that will make your party pop.
