National Biscuit Day History

National Biscuit Day seeks to celebrate the soft baked bread. Biscuits are small baked goods made with flour, baking powder, salt, buttermilk or milk, butter, and sometimes sugar. Before the American Civil War, biscuits began as a cheap supplement to meals. Soon enough, biscuits became one of the world's favorite snacks. This day encourages everyone to enjoy the tasty treats. Biscuits should be distinguished from cookies. Depending on the country, such as in the UK, biscuits may refer to cookies rather than the baked bread in the US.

National Biscuit Day seems to have been started in 2014 as a promotion for the baked bread. It is observed annually on May 29th.
