Found this and thought it could be a good way to promote sales.

http://www.gone-ta-pott.com/national_food_holiday_directory.html

For example, March was National Peanut Month. What a great month to promote peanut butter cookies and all derivatives of! (imagine a variety pack of chocolate cookie with peanut butter chips; peanut butter cookie with choc chips; regular peanut butter cookie with no chips; oatmeal cookies with peanut butter chips; peanut butter cookies with the little Reese's cup pushed into the top; etc).

October is National Cookie Month AND Nat'l Dessert Month! Now I KNOW y'all can come up with marketing ideas for this one!!

December 4th is Nat'l Cookie Day.

July is National Picnic and Nat'l Hot Dog month! The cake designs I can envision for this one!!

I'm already planning my monthly promos for these things!!

Thank you so much, indydebi! This is an awesome link to have. How fun would it be to feature special items based on these calendars?!

My bithday (oct 4) is national taco day....eh...not much of a taco person. I'd much rather have national chocolate cupcake day ( oct 18 ) .

Thanks!

Hey, peardream, I'll trade you one National Rocky Road day for one National Taco Day!! lol I'm not that big on ice cream, but then again I guess I could make Rocky Road Cookies! I do love tacos though! Hmmm, if they only had a National Food Fusion Day featuring Italian, Mexican, Japanese, French, Indian and Chinese foods. Now that would be a day no one would forget, but boy, would it be delicious! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif
