September 2016 – National White Chocolate Day

I am continuing on from last month’s National Dog Day to bring to you a different national day each month. This month includes probably one of the best days National White Chocolate Day. How cool is this day, I never even knew it existed until I was researching about national days.

I thought I would do something a little different instead of the history of white chocolate, I thought it would be good to share with you my top four favourite white chocolate brands. Some of you may know that white chocolate is by far my favourite, so it was quite tricky trying to find four types that I really enjoy.

4. White Chocolate with Crisped Rice

Now this is a recent favourite of mine after spotting it in my local Co-up. It’s something different rather than your standard white chocolate bar. Wrapped inside the white chocolate is pieces of crisped rice. I didn’t realise something like this existed and now I am in love.

3. Milkybar

Now this is a childhood favourite of mine, to this day I still enjoy eating Milkybar. I swear when I was a kid these were a lot bigger though! They seem to go quicker. It’s something so simple and not too sickly. Some chocolate bars can be very sickly depending on their contents.

2. Kinder Bueno White

I love everything and anything Kinder produce, everything is a firm favourite. So when they brought out a white chocolate version of their Bueno I was immediately in love. There’s not much white chocolate here compared to the Milkybar but it is enough. There are little chocolate balls that just seem to get everywhere! But I still love it.

1. Milkybar Buttons

Now something else I am addicted to is chocolate buttons, but not just any buttons, white chocolate buttons. The only problem with these, there never seems to be enough in a packet! I love just snacking on these. Milkybar is by far my favourite chocolate and I love that they are white chocolate.

Happy National White Chocolate Day guys. I hope you liked this little insight into my favourite white chocolate! Let me know in the comments what your favourite chocolate is, I know there’s a lot of different ones out there!



August 2016 – National Dog Day

Now a days there seems to be a day for just about anything! Each month I am going to share my favourite National Day. Starting with this month, August! Friday 26 August marks National Dog Day.

Founded in 2004 by Colleen Paige, Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert, National Dog Day is celebrated annually on 26 August. Colleen has also founded a range of other days to bring attention to the plight of animals and encourage adoption. Including National Puppy Day and National Cat Day.

National Dog Day celebrates dogs of all breeds, their mission is to inform the public about the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year. Along with acknowledging family dogs and dog that work each day to save lives. There are different jobs where dogs are involved.

Including personal protection, law enforcement and even detecting cancer and seizures. Along with celebrating the achievements dogs do every day, they also encourage people to adopt dogs rather than buying from pet stores. National Dog Day is seen to be a birthday for all dogs.

Dogs are one of my favourite animals and I hate seeing them in pain at the hand of man. After finding out about this day, I believe it’s something we should all celebrate as sometimes dogs give their lives to protect the people they love. They are man’s best friend and we should respect them.

Growing up I never had a dog, it wasn’t until recently after our cat died that as a family we decided to get a puppy. A year ago this month, we chose a little Cocker Spaniel pup who we named Biscuit. He is just perfect and I wouldn’t change him for the world. Most of the time he is a little monkey, but he is our monkey.

I hope you have liked this post! Especially the brief introduction to Biscuit. Let me know in the comments the name of your pet or event pets! Maybe in the future I will do an introduction to Biscuit. For more information about National Dog Day and how you can help head over to their official page HERE!
