Who Doesn’t Love Sweets? And with These Two National Sweets Days from National Today, You will be in a Sweet Nirvana
Need an excuse to have something sweet this week? Well, mark your calendars and celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day and National Root Beer Float Day!
National Today — the internet’s #1 authority on holidays — has some recommendations on how to celebrate:
National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day– August 4
It is estimated that a person eats around 35,000 cookies in a lifetime. Whether you pick up some preformed cookie dough at the grocery store or you whip up your favorite recipe from scratch, the ultimate way to celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day is to pop a cookie sheet in the oven and let that heavenly smell fill up your whole house!
World Cookie Day is observed every year on August 4 and we are celebrating it this year by… eating cookies! Biting into a Chocolate Chip Cookie can transport us back to the halcyon days of our childhoods when the days were long and the milk was cold.
We’ve tried Chocolate Chip Cookies warm and gooey right out of the oven or fresh and chewy from the grocery store. But no matter what form your favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie takes, there’s no denying that this triple-C confection holds a very special place in our hearts.
National Root Beer Float Day– August 6
There’s no better way to celebrate National Root Beer Float Day than by concocting your own root beer float. Grab a bottle of your favorite brand of root beer, pour into a chilled glass and top off with a fresh scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Diet? Not on August 6. It’s National Root Beer Float Day, after all — a time to enjoy one of the best beverage/dessert combos on the planet. On that day, some even compete for root beer float greatness. It all started in Colorado back in 1893. Frank J. Wisner was inspired. Surrounded by Cow Mountain where his Cripple Creek Brewing Company was located, Wisner came up with a novel idea. While mountain gazing, he didn’t see snow-covered peaks. Instead, Wisner envisioned scoops of ice cream floating in root beer. Crazy, right? So, today, enjoy the tallest, fizziest root beer float you can find!
