National Vanilla Pudding Day
Vanilla pudding is dished up today. There have been many types of puddings over the centuries, but when referring to pudding nowadays, one is most often referring to a milk-based dessert with flavorings. It is cooked with starch and cooled until it is well-set before being eaten. There also are "instant puddings," which are commercially packaged and require no cooking. The most iconic is made by Jell-O. Some of the most popular pudding flavors are vanilla, chocolate, tapioca, and butterscotch. Today we celebrate the vanilla variety!
