Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?

1. Consider that 'malasada' is a local confection.

Does 'get over' make sense in this context:

"You came at the right time.

Malasadas are quite popular at this time of the year. Once Carnival is over, THEY ARE OVER, too."

    No.

    Once Carnaval [note spelling] is over, the malasadas are gone.

    You can't say food items are over.

    Yes that is fine. And you rightly do not use 'the' with Carnival when it is functioning as a proper noun (evidenced by use of the capital letter).
