National Chocolate Pudding Day

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.

How to Observe National Chocolate Pudding Day

Make yourself some homemade chocolate pudding! Top it with raspberries or with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. Use chocolate pudding to make a tart or pie. If you'd like to simplify your celebration, make Jell-O pudding or grab a Snack Pack.
