FOOD HOLIDAY: Send Sweets To Celebrate Sweetest Day, October 15th

Some people are snarky and call them “Hallmark Holidays,” but occasions such as Administrative Professionals Day (the Wednesday of the last full week of April), Grandparents Day (the first Sunday after Labor Day) and National Nurses Day (May 6th) do more than sell cards. They provide an opportunity to thank someone. If the thanks comes with a card and a small gift, it supports the economy and makes someone happy.

Sweetest Day, October 15th, was founded in 1921 by a Cleveland confectioner and philanthropist in order to do something nice for the neglected. More than 20,000 boxes of candy were distributed to orphans, newsboys, the aged and the poor. The tradition expanded to the entire Great Lakes region, with the third Saturday in October as the official date.

Over time, Sweetest Day became a celebration with loved ones, friends and colleagues: a day to make someone happy anywhere in the country.

You’ll definitely make someone happy with one of our sweet treat recommendations: outstanding products selected by THE NIBBLE editors as the best in their category. There are delicious sugar-free sweets as well.
