National Food Days
National Creampuff Day, January 2nd
National Creampuff Day is a test for your New Year’s resolution to go on a diet! Cream puffs were created in 1540 by the pastry chef to Catherine de Medici, the Queen of France. The delicious puffed pastry shells can be stuffed with a variety of delicious fillings, so get out there and choose your poison. These royal treats definitely deserve their own day of celebration.
National Popcorn Day, January 19th
Popcorn was invented by Native Americans thousands of years ago when they would throw corn onto hot rocks placed over a fire. Now we have microwave popcorn, which makes things a little easier! Make yourself a popcorn necklace just like the Aztecs, or just curl up on the couch with Netflix and some buttery snacks.
National Pie Day, January 23rd
Apple pie is the quintessential American dessert. Berry, pumpkin, chocolate, lemon, apple—you can buy or make your own pie and raise your fork to America’s favorite dessert on National Pie Day. It’s so good you might just eat the whole thing, but don’t worry, 20% of Americans have confessed to eating an entire pie!
National Peanut Butter Day, January 24th
If you don’t love peanut butter, you’re probably allergic, and then it’s so good it kills you. Whip together your favorite peanut-based treat on National Peanut Butter Day. Or wait for one of the many peanut-themed holidays scattered throughout the year—Peanut Butter Lover’s Day, Peanut Cluster Day, Peanut Butter Cookie Day, and how can we forget Peanut Butter Jelly Day? Seriously, there are a lot of nut-related celebrations.
