NATIONAL CORN ON THE COB DAY
June 11 of each year is the day to celebrate National Corn on the Cob Day. Fresh corn on the cob is a summertime treat that people from all corners of the United States look forward to as we start the picnic season.
Corn on the cob is also known in different regions as pole corn, cornstick, sweet pole, butter-pop or long maize. It is a sweet corn that is picked when the kernels are still tender when it’s in its milk stage.
Boiling, steaming, roasting or grilling are the most common ways of preparing corn on the cob. If it is grilled or oven roasted, the corn is usually left in its husk during the cooking process.
Proper dinner etiquette for eating corn says it is appropriate to hold the cob at each end with your fingers.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Get the butter and the salt shaker ready, gather up some friends, start your grill and enjoy some corn on the cob! For those with hankering for corn off the cob, check out Jody’s Gourmet Popcorn your snacking pleasure! Use #CornOnTheCobDay on social media.

NATIONAL GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE DAY
National German Chocolate Cake Day is observed by chocolate lovers annually on June 11.
Although the name may sound like the cake originated in Germany, it did not. The cake’s roots can be traced back to 1852 when American, Sam German, made a type of dark baking chocolate for the American Baker’s Chocolate Company. Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate’s brand was named in honor of Sam German.
Over 100 years later in 1957, a recipe for “German’s Chocolate Cake” appeared as the Recipe of the Day in the Dallas Morning Star. This recipe, created by Mrs. George Clay, used the Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate, and it became quite popular. During this time, General Foods owned the Baker’s brand and distributed Mrs. Clay’s recipe to other newspapers around the country. The current name of German Chocolate Cake, as we know it today, came to be as publications started dropping the ‘s.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Celebrate by enjoying a piece of German Chocolate Cake with friends. Include photos on social media using #GermanChocolateCakeDay.
