SPIDER March 2019

Who’s hungry? This strangely delicious issue features a mountain-sized cupcake, peanut butter in France, the world’s weirdest pizzas, and a leprechaun who gives new meaning to “eating green.”

The luck o’ the Irish must be with you in this edition of SPIDER Magazine, which looks at Leprechauns, celebrates Celts, and goes green for March—the month of Saint Patrick’s Day!


Starting with a traditional Irish folk tale, SPIDER focuses on all the aspects of St. Patty’s Day that we celebrate. Try your hand at making a Celtic charm for your backpack or bake some tasty Shamrock Pretzel Pops. Speaking of good taste, SPIDER also lets you take a fun quiz to see what kind of eater you are, look at the history of pizza, and see what the differences are between American and French foods, as well as play a French-English word matching game!
