July 8: National (Milk) Chocolate with Almonds Day

Some places list today as National Chocolate with Almonds Day and others list it as National Milk Chocolate with Almonds Day.  My guess is that it started as Chocolate with Almonds Day but, of all the different types of chocolate out there, a lot of people like milk chocolate best so the day morphed a bit.  Then again, National Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day occurs in November, so maybe there was a need for today to celebrate milk chocolate with almonds.

There really isn't much to say about today.  I mean, really - it's chocolate with almonds.  (Which is different than covered almonds.)  SlashFood claims that chocolate and almonds is a relatively new pairing, having been around for only about 20 years.  Eatocracy suggests celebrating today with an Almond Joy, but I prefer to celebrate today with a bar of Dark Chocolate with Cranberries and Almonds - also known as the Wolf Chocolate Bar from the brand Endangered Species.  If milk chocolate is more to your taste, Endangered Species also has a milk chocolate bar with almonds.
