March Food Holidays

National and international food holidays and observances for the month of March

March celebrates American Chocolate Week, National Chocolate Caramel Day, National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day, Popcorn Lover’s Day and Maple Syrup Saturday. Needless to say, it’s a fun month that’s also filled with collegiate basketball, appetizers, munchies and draft beers. That is of course, unless you’re fasting for Lent, which may make March decidedly less fun. And as March Madness hits its third week, casual dining and drinking at a sports bar turns to serious drinking at an Irish pub for St. Patrick’s Day. At least if you’re doing it right.
