After a recent Twitter search I discovered just how many people snack on croutons in the comfort of their home. Shades drawn so no one can see. When did eating croutons become a guilty pleasure?!
It’s happened to the best of us..the moment you realize eating one crouton turned into the entire box. Or how about the time you made yourself a salad and the salad to crouton ratio was a bit one sided? Been there. Done that. Yep. Mmmhmm.
It is time we stop kidding ourselves. Croutons are really good! Which is why it should come as no surprise that there is an entire day dedicated to croutons. That’s right, a day dedicated to our favorite crunchy, salty, bite-sized indulgence! National Crouton Day is May 13th and on this day we shop for croutons for snacking, not just for salads. So open those curtains, get dressed up, invite your friends over, eat your croutons straight from the box, and save that salad for tomorrow.
Happy National Crouton Day from all of us at Olivia’s Croutons!
