Fun Food Holidays™ Today is January 27th

CDK is the home of the original Fun Food Holidays. This collection of food-related dates was created so every day would be a holiday. We have the most complete and up-to-date collection (even though others have tried to copy us) so check back each day for a new reason to celebrate food!


National Chocolate Cake Day

Say the word 'cake,' and most people will visualize a chocolate cake. Chocolate cake is technically distinct from devil's food in that it is denser and is made with real chocolate instead of cocoa. Whether you're planning to bake one for a routine dessert or a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary, CDK has some seven hundred chocolate cake recipes for you to use!

National Blueberry Pancake Day

Start this Fun Food Holiday off right with a breakfast of blueberry pancakes! Little bursts of sweet berries inside a stack of fresh hotcakes make this a classic breakfast choice at diners and home kitchens throughout America. You can call them flapjacks, griddle cakes, hotcakes, or pancakes--blueberries make them all better!

National Cornchip Day

Corn chips have a taste and aroma that are distinctive in the snack world. Smaller, yet more rigid than their corn-made cousin the tortilla chip, this snack food is a primary ingredient in Frito Pie, a popular dish in the Southern US (think chilidogs, but with serving-size bags of corn chips in place of hot dogs!).

National Croissant Day

Probably the best-known French pastry in North America, croissants (also known as crescent rolls) are made with layers of puff pastry, shaped into crescent moons, and baked into light, flaky rolls. They can be served plain or with sweet fillings or toppings. Sliced croissants even have become a common substitute for sandwich bread. Vive la difference! It's National Croissant Day.

National Popcorn Day

A Native American snacking innovation, popcorn has a place in cooking as well as at ballparks and movie theaters. Popping corn is a distinct type of corn that, when heated, expands from the moisture inside its kernel until it, well, pops! CDK will help you make National Popcorn Day special with recipes for both sweet and savory popcorn, popcorn balls, even popcorn cakes and fudge!
