National Tapioca Pudding Day - July 15

National Tapioca Pudding Day – July 15


Annually celebrated across the nation and around the world, July 15th is National Tapioca Pudding Day!

Extracted from Manioc, tapioca is a starch.  Now cultivated worldwide, Manioc is a woody shrub of the Euphorbiaceae (spurge) family and is native to South America.  It is cultivated as an annual crop in tropical and subtropical regions for its edible starchy tuberous root.  When dried to a powdery or pearly extract, it is called tapioca.

There are several forms that, commercially, tapioca is processed into.  These forms are: hot soluble powder, meal, pre-cooked fine/coarse flakes, rectangle sticks and “pearls”.  Pearls are the most widely used and most widely available shape having sizes ranging from around 1 mm to 8 mm in diameter.

Although used in other ways, in the United States, tapioca is usually associated with tapioca pudding. 


To celebrate, make or buy some tapioca pudding. Post on social media using #TapiocaPuddingDay to encourage others to join in.


Our research was unable to find the creator of National Tapioca Pudding Day, an “unofficial” national holiday.
