National Chocolate Pudding Day
annually on June 26th
Chocolate pudding, a popular chilled dessert, is celebrated today with National Chocolate Pudding Day! Chocolate pudding is a variation of chocolate custard, being texturally similar to it, where a starch—like cornstarch or flour—not eggs, is usually used as a thickener. Other common ingredients include milk, sugar, chocolate, and vanilla. It is boiled before being chilled and can be eaten plain or used as a filling in layer cakes, pies, and tarts. Chocolate pudding is commonly topped with whipped cream, maraschino cherries, chocolate, toasted coconut, and raspberries, and can be eaten as either a dessert or snack. Familiar store-bought chocolate puddings are Snack Pack by Hunt's and Jell-O pudding by Kraft Foods Corporation.
