Did You Know That Truffles Can Fetch Up To $350 For A Single Ounce?!

Welcome to May 2nd, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate smelly mushrooms and sweet success.   

If you’re a fan of all things chocolate, then the word “truffle” conjures images of rich round globes of decadent candy.   But if you’re a connoisseur of the pungent fungus kind then you know truffles are a culinary love bomb.  Truffles are mushrooms that grow underground, and when they are ready for harvesting,  they give off an odor that is best detected by a pig or a dog.  This rich aroma is what gives them their characteristic flavor and ridiculous high price.  But buyer beware; most truffles lose this flavor after only four days!  For a product that fetches up to $350 an ounce, the market can be full of counterfeits.  It’s best to buy them from a reputable supplier.  Or better yet, celebrate National Truffle Day by dining out at your favorite bougie restaurant. 

National Lemonade Day is the perfect opportunity to teach kids about the sweet taste of success.  Who wouldn't benefit from the lesson these days that when life give you lemons, you make lemonade.  The first Sunday of May invites you to visit the website to find new ways to inspire young people. This organization teaches them to first, set a goal, second, make a plan, third, work the plan and fourth, achieve your dream. Of course you’ll want to get a jump start on the planning so your kids can have every opportunity to succeed.  On National Lemonade Day don’t forget to kick back and sip the juicy rewards!
