August 8 - National Frozen Custard Day
Was this this holiday created by a food organization? Our research couldn't find the answer to that question - This holiday is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate. So have fun with it and celebrate it!
What is Frozen Custard?
"Frozen custard is a cold dessert similar to ice cream, made with eggs in addition to cream and sugar. It typically contains 10% butterfat and 1.4% egg yolk. One claim traces its invention to Coney Island in 1919 "
"In some areas on the East Coast, "frozen custard" or "custard" has become used as a synonym for soft serve by people born since the early 1950's."
