National Sour Candy Day

    Can you believe it? Today is national sour candy day! Yes there must be national days for almost anything.

    A little bit is explained about sour candy. We are told how it's made and why it's enjoyable.

   We are also told how to enjoy national sour candy day. Yes, go out and buy some sour candy and eat it!

   Now at one time I liked candy as well as the next guy. Today I rarely eat any candy. I may eat the odd mint. I can even pass up on chocolates.

   Now when it comes to sour candy, I've never liked it so national sour candy day is a nonstarter with me.

   July 18 is also claimed by a few other ideas. (1) national caviar day, (2) national get out of the doghouse day, (3) National Hamilton day. I could pass on these three and not bother with any celebrations. Yes they tell you how to celebrate these days too.

    So once in awhile I check to see what national day it is. It's usually like July 18 where some   pretty dull things are celebrated.

    How about you? Do you make a habit of celebrating some of these odd
ball days?

  3. I have no idea what sour candy is and why you should have a special day for it. It is all an idea of the commerce I suppose.

    1. You're right that it's all a sales promotion. Sour candy has a very acidy taste.

  4. This made me think what sour candy I might consume, if I had some.Jolly Rancher, lemon or cherry.

  7. Hi Red, I don't usually celebrate any of these days. Like you said, they are usually just marketing.

    1. For sure I don't celebrate this nonsense. Yes, it's marketing.

    1. Well, I'm not celebrating or advocating celebrating. It's pretty commercialized.

  9. I think it's funny that there seems to be a "day" for everything! But I'd wholeheartedly celebrate national cookie day! (It should be everyday!)

  10. I dislike sour candy, so I wouldn't even go for the idea.

  11. I ate a grapefruit today. Sour fruit ought to be a suitable substitute for sour candy, don't you think?

    1. Sorry, I'd eat the grapefruit too. Skip the sour candy.

  12. I do well to remember the major holidays so I don't go looking for others. Besides I don't like sour candy.

  14. Sour candies are just not my thing. I can eat one but won't go for another. Sour green apple was popular for a while.

    1. Well, there you go. You have to get busy and have a day established.

  16. I don't really celebrate them but it's fun to hear about it. Candy is not my thing at all. I prefer fresh fruit for something sweet.

    1. The national days are only amusing. Fruit consumption is a very good habit.

  17. I wonder if the US has a national sour candy day. No, I won't be celebrating! I think these trivial "national days" are nothing but advertising gimmicks.

    1. You bring up a good point. What country are these days celebrated in?

  18. I don't care for sour candy and I hate jolly ranchers. I do love that watermelon basket on your post. Just read your last post. Oh my goodness, around here there is always something going on like your deal with the washers, and usually it turns out that I was wrong. :)

  19. I'm rarely aware of these kinds of days but even if I was.. I kind of doubt I'd get into it. But you never know. .. I don't dislike sour candy. :)

  20. Oh no sour. They can keep that day. I will pass that.

  21. Ha ha, that's funny. I do like sour candy but very seldom eat them and I had no idea there was a special day to celebrate it. I do not celebrate odd ball holidays. I have enough trouble keeping up with traditional celebrations and holidays. Have a great rest of your week!

  22. Ugh, I never liked sour candy! I'm more of a chocolate girl myself. I'd use any excuse to celebrate National Chocolate day!
