Few things represent summer better than sweet, juicy watermelon. Born out of the Nile Valley in Ancient Egypt, humans have been enjoying this tasty berry for millennia. Seriously, they found watermelon seeds in King Tut’s tomb. (He obviously had the right idea.)
National Ice Cream Month’s tastiest representative is finally here—National Hot Fudge Sundae Day! And while the designated holiday may not be an age-old tradition, the dessert itself certainly is. Uniquely American, this sweet treat has been served to dessert lovers since 1906, created at the C.C. Browns ice cream parlor on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. Since it originated in California, which boasts some of the greatest weed in the world, we figured it was only fitting to add a little THC to the already indulgent feast.
It’s fitting that National Iced Tea Day falls in June when it’s sweltering all day every day, but we’d be lying if we said we didn’t enjoy this tasty beverage year-round. And it’s not just us! Behind water, tea is the most consumed beverage in the world. That stat definitely includes hot tea as well, but contrary to popular belief, you can find iced tea outside the United States. It’s not super popular, but countries like Mexico and Japan do keep it in their beverage lineup. Maybe we should make June 10 International Iced Tea Day? We’ll start spreading the word...
When we first heard that today was National Chia Day, we immediately went to our garage to search for our old terracotta Shrek head. We found it and started watering it, excited but a little confused as to why Chia Pets were making a comeback, before we realized - oh, this day is probably about the nutritional value and not the novelty value of the chia seed. Our Shrek is blooming though!
