Here it is March already. This month the International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) kicked off the annual ET Awareness Month. This year’s theme is Let’s Talk About It. For information on IEFT and essential tremors visit https://essentialtremor.org/.
Now for this week’s Friday Facts:
Monday – National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day.
To celebrate Hershey’s launched a new all peanut butter Reese’s peanut butter cup. Similar to the chocolate covered peanut butter cup we know and love, it is ALL peanut butter. Fear not good folks, you can still get the classic chocolate peanut butter cup.
Tuesday – Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss
Children for years have grown up reading Dr. Seuss. It was incorrectly reported that Dr. Seuss would be no more. That was incorrect. Dr. Seuss Enterprises has decided it will no longer publish six of his lesser-known books saying character images in those six books are hurtful and wrong. Dr. Seuss’ books will continue to live on. This is good news for children and parents alike.
Wednesday – A Unusual Food Collaboration
In time for Easter Chicago-based Goose Island Brewery and Cadbury have teamed up to make a Cadbury Creme Egg beer. It is called Golden Goo-Beer-Lee Creme Stout. A blend of malted barley, oats, wheat and milk sugar and brewed with cocao nibs and vanilla, it is said to imitate the rich and creamy taste and texture of the chocolate egg.
The limited edition Golden Goo-Beer-Lee Creme Stout will be available onlineq in the UK at www.gooseislandshop.com in packs of two from 11am GMT on Monday 8 March 2021.
Thursday – Ice Cream Treats and St. Patty’s Day
With spring and summer around the corner, tastes turn to ice cream and just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, M&M’s is introducing two new ice cream sandwiches. One is a mint take on their famous classic cookie sandwich with green mint ice cream sandwiched between two M&M studded chocolate cookies. The other is the classic vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two soft-baked chocolate M&M cookies.
Friday – Good News for Americans on Vaccinations
