August 14, 2020 – National Sandwich Month | National Creamsical Day
Do You Know the Origin of the Sandwich? Find Out How This Finger Food Helps You Celebrate On the Go All Month Long!
Welcome to August 14th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate food on the go and one kid’s successful dream.
John Montagu was obsessed with gambling. So much so that he played at cards for hours on end, even forgetting at times to eat. Then one day, he devised a meal that could be eaten with one hand and requested that his servant bring him some meat between two pieces of bread. And thus, the Earl of Sandwich created the…well, the sandwich. Since then, this portable meal has become one of the most popular finger foods in the world. And with so many choices from the multilayered club to the easy peanut butter and jelly, we decided you need a whole month to celebrate. Enjoy packing in lots of fun on the go during National Sandwich Month.
You may have heard that the Popsicle was invented by a kid. That kid was 11 year old Frank Epperson, who kept right on dreaming after the huge success of his first frozen treat. At an age when most of us are trying out a paper route, young Frank experimented with vanilla ice cream covered in a shell of orange sherbert that he eventually called the Epsicle. Ok, so naming his inventions wasn’t his strong suit, but the Creamsicle made with vanilla ice cream and the Dreamsicle, its ice milk cousin are now a frosty phenomenon. This kid certainly got something right when he set up a patent in 1923. Today over two billion popsicles are sold every year. On National Creamsicle Day, celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit of a kid who knew how to keep on dreaming.
