June 2013 Chocolate Fun Holidays

Let your Chocolate Priestess apologize about not putting out a calendar every month for the past nine months.  I was teaching at the university level and frankly The Chocolate Cult which is not a business but a love fell to the back burner.  But now we are back so chocolatiers start sending your products for features and readers start leaving comments please!

Here are some fun food holidays that you could celebrate with Chocolate in June.


June = National Dairy Month

1st Friday June = National Donut Day -- falls on June 7th this year the same dates as "National Chocolate Ice Cream Day"

June 2 = National Rocky Road Day

June 7 = National Chocolate Ice Cream Day -- even though July is the month of ice cream?

June 11 = National German Chocolate Cake Day; birthday (1796) of Francois-Louis Cailler, first Swiss chocolatier -- we'll be looking at Swiss style truffles before his birthday so keep  your eyes open for that

June 12 = National Peanut Butter Cookie Day -- obviously chocolate makes this even better!

June 15, 1790 = birthday of CHARLES-AMEDEE KOHLER, Swiss confectioner -- we'll be looking at Swiss style truffles before his birthday so keep  your eyes open for that

June 16 = National Fudge Day -- we're doing a feature just in time for this holiday

June 22 = National Chocolate Éclair Day  -- they never seem to have enough chocolate in them to satisfy me

June 24 = National Pralines Day

June 26 = National Chocolate Pudding Day -- I haven't had pudding in some time, maybe I should

June 30, 1971 = Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory along with The Willy Wonka Candy Factory is released; a later version with Johnny Depp was made but I'm more a fan of the 1971 version even though I was too young to see it when it came out
