Happy Halloween! It’s no secret that Halloween is one of the biggest days of the year (not to mention the weeks leading up to it and the weeks after) to indulge in sweets–especially candy. In fact, if you took all the candy that’s sold during Halloween week and turned it into a giant ball, it’d be as large as six Titanics and weigh 300,000 tons. That’s two pounds of candy per American!
October is National Pasta Month and today is the official National Pasta Day! Did you know Americans eat an average of twenty pounds of pasta per person annually? Pasta is one of the most versatile foods that you can combine with almost any flavor and protein – from beef to shrimp to poultry and pork. There are also over 300 different forms or shapes of pasta! See how many you recognize from the National Pasta Association’s Shapes Library.
Today is basically the best day ever because it’s Friday AND National Dessert Day! And
maybe probably it’s just us, but there’s something about the chilly fall air that makes you just crave desserts alongside a cup of coffee, tea or hot apple cider. So in honor of the autumn season and National Dessert Day, we thought we would share some of our favorite fall desserts featuring pumpkin, apple, cranberry and salted caramel flavors!
Fall has officially arrived and, with the cooler temperatures and nip in the air, comes an increased appetite for meals and snacks that provide warmth and goodness. It is Rosina season!
Move over pumpkin spice, there’s another food trend in town: pierogies. That’s right; October 8th marks the eighth annual National Pierogy Day! You can bet pierogy lovers across the country will be celebrating by enjoying the delicious combination of creamy whipped potatoes and other flavorful ingredients like aged cheddar cheese folded into a pasta shell.
If you haven’t ever had ambrosia before (or haven’t had it since you were a kid) you’re in for a real, sweet Florida treat.
Happy National Pizza Month! There’s no question that pizza is one of the most popular foods in America. How can you not love its cheesy goodness with savory toppings piled on high? The stats are there to prove its popularity.
