Popcorn for Dessert on this Special Day

Popcorn for Dessert on this Special Day

On September 19 Cravings Gourmet Popcorn is celebrating a very special day. Did you know that National Butterscotch Pudding Day is September 19th?  It’s a simple holiday to remember because it is always celebrated on September 19, regardless of the day of the week on which it falls.  This year it is Wednesday – a perfect day to have a mid-week celebration. 

National Butterscotch Pudding Day does not have an official proclamation, and the traditions associated with this day are understandably limited.  If you check online the best you can find is a call to make and eat your own butterscotch pudding on this special day.  You won’t find any decorations or special cards to commemorate this event - it appears that the stores and retail associations did not get the memo about this wonderful holiday.

We thought that the word scotch in the name might refer to either Scottish origins or for the hard liquor of the same name – wrong on both counts.  One explanation for the word is its relationship to the meaning "to cut or score" for the word "scotch", as butterscotch candy must be cut into pieces, or "scotched", before hardening. It is also possible that the "scotch" part of its name was derived from the word "scorch". (Thank you Wiki!)

With ingredients like butter, sugar, and salt – how can you go wrong?  That combination has worked well for us at Cravings. One of our most popular sweet popcorn flavors is – you guessed it – butterscotch.  Come celebrate National Butterscotch Pudding Day with us! Let’s try tossing some popcorn on your pudding.

Cravings Gourmet Popcorn is located in Old Town, the hippest area of Lansing, Michigan. We welcome visitors to our store and our website.  Enjoy our unique naturally seasoned flavors and vintage sodas, and when you can’t come in person know that we will ship your favorites to you anywhere nationwide.
