[FHCx112] National Chocolate-Covered Cashew Truffle Day

Choconuts!

TODAY IS NATIONAL CHOCOLATE COVERED CASHEW TRUFFLE DAY!

Talk about specific. Some of these holidays must have been a real reach. But we can’t complain when there’s chocolate involved. And since no one seemed to have this oddly specific truffle, we took matters into our own hands. Thanks to SPad for pointing out this recipe.

[FHCx84] National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day

A respite from the double-duty days this week:

IT’S NATIONAL CHOCOLATE COVERED RAISIN DAY!

SP has always been a fan of raisins. Soft, chewy, sugary lumps of purple… But some people, like SPam and AK, are not so much fans. Across the world, even, people don’t like raisins. What gives?

Well that’s when companies like Nestle or Brach’s come along and say “HEY! We never shoulda fired George Newman! Let’s cover raisins with chocolate!” And there you have it. Add chocolate and suddenly we’re cool.

Mmmmm.

Tomorrow is Waffle Day (thanks to Sweden, as the US Waffle Day is 8/24) and Lobster Newburg day!
