July 14, 2021 – National Mac And Cheese Day | National Grand Marnier Day

July 13, 2021

One Million Boxes Of This Brand Are Sold Every Day!

Welcome to July 14th, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate a classic comfort food and the spirit of class. 

Macaroni and cheese has become a staple food for kids everywhere. If you’re a parent, you’re probably sick of being asked to make this dish, but you gotta know you’re not alone. Kraft sells one million boxes of mac and cheese. Per day. And Canada buys almost 24% of that total. Up there, it’s referred to as Kraft Dinner and some have unofficially called it the country’s national meal. It’s also popular to put ketchup on it, but don’t give your kids any ideas. On National Mac And Cheese Day, whip up a bowl of this classic comfort food, though it may not feel different from any other day, still a celebration is a celebration, right?

Everything about the orange flavored liqueur known as Grand Marnier signifies class, elegance and distinction. Made from Caribbean oranges, fine cognac and sugar, this spirit is aged to perfection for nearly 10 years.  Since its debut in 1880 the process has changed very little. It first appeared at the Ritz Hotel in Paris and sailed aboard the RMS Titanic.  To this day a rescued bottle is found in the Titanic Museum.  It was more recently served to Queen Elizabeth II for her Golden Jubilee and today a new bottle is purchased every two seconds.  On National Grand Marnier Day, celebrate the spirit that evokes class in everything from cocktails to desserts.
