31 Days of Romancing the Chocolate

August = National Romance Awareness Month

We've covered Romance here on The Chocolate Cult and not just on Valentine's Day or just with chocolate.

You can check out some of those posts here.

August 1 = Swiss National Day

August 2 = National Ice Cream Sandwich Day

August 4 = National Chocolate Chip Day; National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

August 5 = National Waffle Day (there are 2 of these same holidays but this one seems more like an error to me; read below for why)

August 6, 1826 = Birthday of Joseph Storrs Fry II who took over his grandfather’s thriving chocolate business in England. (mostly because I couldn’t find an accurate birthday for the chocolate genius that was Joseph Storrs Fry) To learn more, check out our article about him here.

August 10 = National S’mores Day
                 = Birthday of Henri Nestlé, German Confection and founder of the Nestlé corporation along with Daniel Peter who created the Milk Chocolate bar using Nestlé expertise with condensed milk

August 12 = John Cadbury Birthday (1801-1889)

August 18 = National Soft Serve Ice Cream Day

August 20 = National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day

August 24 = National Waffle Day (anniversary of the first US patent for the waffle iron) Find some articles about waffles that we've published here.

August 25 = National Banana Split Day

August 27 = National Pots de Crème Day
                 = National Banana Lovers Day (wouldn't this be better before August 25?)

August 30 = National Toasted Marshmallow Day

I didn't know about all of these special days. S'mores day, soft serve ice cream and Banana Split day sound wonderful to me.
