National Dessert Day History

National Dessert Day seeks to celebrate all things dessert. Sweets were originally offered as tribute to Gods in ancient Mesopotamia and other ancient civilizations. As people became more connected through trade, sugarcane became more widespread, thus kickstarting the concept of dessert.

The U.S saw an emergence of sweets with the boon of the industrial revolution and the creation of the freezer in the 1920s. National Dessert Day is observed annually on October 14th.
