About Plum Pudding Day

When is Plum Pudding Day? This holiday is always celebrated on February 12

I’ll bet you’re tickled purple, that today is Plum Pudding Day. It’s your chance to eat some of this pudding. Doesn’t this make you happy!?! You must admit, if it wasn’t Plum Pudding Day, you probably wouldn’t even think about it, let alone eat some. And, that’s a shame. They are sweet tasting and healthy for you. Plums have a high level of antioxidants, soluble fiber, and vitamin C.

Participating in this holiday might take a little work. You will find vanilla and chocolate pudding on store shelves. You’ll find banana and tapioca pudding, too. Unfortunately, we do not believe there is a packaged plum pudding on the market. That means you get the joy of finding a recipe and some fresh plums in the middle of February and making it from scratch. You can also seek out a restaurant that serves it. Tip: call and check before you go.

This tasty fruit is popular in Chinese and Asian cuisine. It is entirely possible that this day originated either in Asia or by someone enjoying a Chinese plum pudding for dessert.

Did You Know? The plum tree is one of the few trees that grow around the world.
