When is National Buttercrunch Day? This holiday is always observed on January 20

Candy lovers today is your day. It’s National Buttercrunch Day, a January 20 holiday. Today you can enjoy buttercrunch the candy. Or you can have it in ice cream, cereal, snacks, trail mix, puddings, and in a variety of other ways. As a matter of fact, we challenge you to find different and unique ways to enjoy it.

Spend the day with one of your favorite snacks. Make it your personal goal to have something with buttercrunch at each meal, and as a snack. Tomorrow, you can return to the diet.

Neither the creator of this day nor original documentation as to the details of this holiday is known. So, we offer up the possibility that National Buttercrunch Day is not about candy. Rather, it’s about Buttercrunch lettuce. And, just maybe a home gardener created this day. What do you think!? Until our research uncovers the true meaning one way or the other, feel free to celebrate the candy or the lettuce. Or, why not celebrate both!?

History and Origin of National Buttercrunch Day

We believe this day was created by an individual or group that just loves Buttercrunch. Perhaps, they were so busy enjoying their favorite treat, that they failed to document their creation and get the crunchy credit!

On the other hand, we are not letting go of the possibility that a gardener who grows buttercrunch lettuce created this day. It remains a possibility.

There is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a “National” day, which requires an act of congress. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation about this special day.
