NATIONAL CHOCOLATE PUDDING DAY
The food holiday National Chocolate Pudding Day is observed each year on June 26th. Chocolate pudding has been loved by children and adults for many years. Usually eaten as a snack or dessert, chocolate pudding is also used as a filling for chocolate creme pie.
Historically, chocolate pudding is a variation of chocolate custard, using starch as a thickener instead of eggs. The 1903 edition of Mary Harris Frazer’s Kentucky Receipt Book and the 1918 edition of Fannie Farmer’s Boston Cooking School Cook Book both have recipes for the earlier version, using both eggs and flour.
- In 1934, General Foods (Jello) introduced chocolate pudding mix as “Walter Baker’s Dessert”.
- In 1936, it was renamed “Pickle’s Pudding”.
Chocolate pudding is usually made with milk and sugar, flavored with chocolate and vanilla then thickened with flour or cornstarch. Some recipes do use eggs when making the pudding.
Chocolate pudding can be purchased ready-made and sold in grocery stores, convenience stores and gas stations. The popular brands include Jell-O by the Kraft Foods Corporation and Snack Pack by Hunt’s.
Enjoy some delicious Chocolate Pudding as a dessert or as a snack. Use #NationalChocolatePuddingDay on social media.

NATIONAL BEAUTICIAN’S DAY
Observed each year on June 26, National Beautician’s Day is a way to thank all of the amazing beauticians across the United States that work diligently at their jobs and make us look and feel more beautiful (and handsome).
Beauticians are more commonly referred to as cosmetologist. Cosmetology is described as the study and application of beauty treatment. The branches of cosmetology include hair styling, skin care, cosmetics, manicures, pedicures and electrology.
Many close relationships have been developed between a client and their beautician. They become a confidant and at times, a very close friend.
Make your beautician’s day special for them. You can call him/her and tell them how much they are appreciated, send a card, send flowers, send a gift card or etc.
For all of you who work in any part of the cosmetology field, THANK YOU for all that you do and have a wonderful day!
