The US has a crazy number of national food & drink days...

National Clam on the Half Shell Day anyone? Chocolate Covered Raisin Day?

1y ago

While we were busy celebrating #NationalCroissantDay yesterday, and getting excited about #WorldNutellaDay on 5 February, Shrove Tuesday on 25 February, and a couple of other days here and there throughout the month, I came across North America's list of national food days.

I mean, you guys go all out. There's a day for EVERYTHING.

Now, some of these I can definitely get behind. National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. That's a yes from me. It's even better/more acceptable that it's on a Saturday, as I'm not sure how impressed the FoodTribe office would be if I cracked open a tub of ice cream for myself at 9am...

Also, pizza pie day? Fine.

But National Tartar Sauce Day? Clam on the Half Shell? Chocolate Covered Raisin day? It's just all too much. Isn't it?

All this is just for February...
