Chocolate Holidays, September 2011

It's that time, Sisters and Brothers, time to plan your month of chocolate enjoyment.


Beyond your own celebrations and daily consumption, which I know many of you do, let's be honest about it, I eat or drink something chocolate almost every day myself I try to be moderate and have a purpose though I'll confess it has been very challenging this year with so much stress in our lives.  I hate worries that involve money.  I mean, I know when money was created, I know there are other ways for human beings to live but I feel so trapped by my time.


Enough of that!  Let's look at fun food holidays you can use chocolate for in September.  As always if you see I've left something out, leave a comment and let me know.



September = National Whole Grains Month -- entire month long try to add some whole grains into anything you create with chocolate.  I only have whole grain wheat flour in our house and it does require a bit more work and a bit of adjusting what you expect things to taste like.

September 4 = World Chocolate Day -- we'll do a piece here but if it will be a review of chocolate or a look at world trends, I haven't decided.  Let me know what you want but make it soon!

September 8 = National Muffin Day -- easily celebrated with a view to the Whole Grain month, right?

September 12 = National Chocolate Milkshake Day -- I think it will still be more than hot enough for this celebration.

September 13 = International Chocolate Day -- we've got a post ready for this great day and it isn't another mass grocery shopping trip like we did back in 2009!

September 13, 1857 may also be the birthday of a very important figure in chocolate history but you'll to tune in to find out who one that day. 

September 14, 1964 = Pop-Tarts come on the market from Kellogg’s -- we have a posted all ready prepped for this date.  I know, I know, hardly the healthiest thing in the world but they are popular so I think we need to cover them.

September 23 = National White Chocolate Day -- as you know, your Chocolate Priestess prefers darker but I will help  you celebrate in some fashion.

September 27 = National Chocolate Milk Day -- how many days do we celebrate chocolate milk?  At least two.  hhhmmm....

So there you have it, Sisters and Brothers.  Let none of you feel you know have a reason to celebrate life with chocolate (and whole grains) in September.

Yeah! Chocolate holidays for September. I think for whole grain, I will go for chocolate chip granola bars or the chocolate covered ones. Granola is whole grain, right?

Whole grains are tricky to determine because the food industry lies to consumers a lot -- whether it is a flat out whopper or a mislead, I still think of it as lying.

But yes, granola tends to be whole grain though it can be high in fat.

Well, maybe if we cover the high fat in chocolate it won't be so noticeable. Just a thought ...
