National Crème Brûlée Day

Seems like everyday is a different “food” holiday of sorts. Bars around D.C. just celebrated National Tequila Day and I just received a press release alerting me that National Lasagna day is coming up this Monday. Bon Appetit published this fun article last year about How National Food Holidays Became A Thing. They’re basically Hallmark holidays that brands and restaurants promote with more or less success as a marketing campaign to sell more things.  And today the “thing” in question was a trio of mini crème brûlée doughnuts (vanilla, chocolate and raspberry) offered by Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken in honour of National  Crème Brûlée Day. Since Nevin Martell of the Washington Post recently declared Astro Doughnut’s crème brûlée doughnut the best doughnut in the city, I thought I might want to celebrate the holiday 😉

Oh, and while national maple syrup day isn’t for another few month (December 17 if you want to mark your calendars already) and international bacon day isn’t until August, I couldn’t resist getting the maple-bacon doughnut as well…
