National Chocolate Covered Cashews Day - April 21

 NATIONAL CHOCOLATE COVERED CASHEWS DAY

National Chocolate Covered Cashews Day is celebrated each year on April 21st. The cashew is a tree from the tree family Anacardiaceae.  Its English name comes from the Portuguese name for the fruit of the cashew tree “caju.”  This tree is originally native to Northeastern Brazil; however, it is now widely grown in tropical climates for it’s cashew fruit and nuts.  Surprisingly, the shell of the cashew nut is toxic, which is why the cashew is shelled before it is sold to consumers.  The cashew nut is a very popular snack with a rich flavor.  They are a well-known favorite during the holidays, but can be enjoyed anytime throughout the year.
