August Food Holidays

1 Aug

Since my good friend, the keeper of monkeys, USED to do a post every month telling us what we should be aware of for the month, I decided to write my own. What else is most important to me but food? So when I saw this Slashfood.com post I thought, “wow there is a lot of food to celebrate!”

First off, it is National Catfish Month!

On top of that there are 28 food related “holidays” in August!!

  1. August 1 National Raspberry Cream Pie Day
  2. August 2 National Ice Cream Sandwich Day
  3. August 2 National Ice Cream Soda Day
  4. August 3 National Watermelon Day
  5. August 4 National Chocolate Chip Day
  6. August 5 National Mustard Day
  7. August 6 National Root Beer Float Day
  8. August 7 Raspberries ‘n Cream Day
  9. August 8 National Frozen Custard Day
  10. August 9 National Rice Pudding Day
  11. August 10 National S’mores Day
  12. August 11 National Raspberry Bombe Day
  13. August 14 National Creamsicle Day
  14. August 15 National Lemon Meringue Pie Day
  15. August 17 National Vanilla Custard Day
  16. August 18 National Ice Cream Pie Day
  17. August 19 National Soft Ice Cream Day
  18. August 20 National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day
  19. August 21 National Spumoni Day
  20. August 22 National Pecan Torte Day
  21. August 23 National Spongecake Day
  22. August 24 National Peach Pie Day
  23. August 25 National Banana Split Day
  24. August 26 National Cherry Popsicle Day
  25. August 27 National Pots de Creme Day
  26. August 28 National Cherry Turnovers Day
  27. August 30 National Toasted Marshmallow Day
  28. August 31 National Trail Mix Day

Notice there seems to be a lot of dessert days? Probably because no one wants to celebrate brussels sprouts!

Do you think I made that up? Nope, thank you interwebs! I found that information on this page. If you scroll down far enough you will find the listing of food related holidays!

Hopefully some of those days will have associated food giveaways at a restaurant here or there and if I catch wind of it I will pass it along!
