The Yummiest Mess

Even if being cooped up for months put someone in a fowl mood (we couldn’t resist…), no doubt they’re eager to enjoy summer outdoors — mask and all. But you can’t wear a mask while eating, which makes food even more appealing than it typically is. 

And there are more delicious ways to consume July than you might imagine. Which, of course, leads to more spills and spill clean up opportunities. (Anything can be turned into a game with the right attitude!). 

Just consider some of these summer yummers: 

July 7: National Chocolate Day. Chocolate is a vegetable, according to chocolate experts, because it comes from cacao seeds, which are found on trees in tropical rain forests. Don’t tell kids this part, though. You’ll never get them to eat broccoli again. 

July 8: National Blueberry Day. Considered more nutritious than chocolate by parents, perhaps, though equally messy when it comes to picnics and spill clean up. Ever tried to get blueberry stains out of clothing?

July 15: National Hot Dog Day (always the third Wednesday in July). Nothing more need be said, except, “Pass the mustard.”

July 16: Fresh Spinach Day. You can point to this as a mandate to eat healthier. Remember Popeye.

July 20: National Ice Cream Soda Day. This one just calls out: spill clean up! Spill clean up!

July 29: National Chicken Wing Day. It rivals Ice Cream Soda Day for spill clean up needs…

And these are just some of the July highlights. The whole month is actually designated National Hot Dog Month, National Ice Cream Month, and National Picnic Month, among others.

Clearly, all businesses and households must be prepared, especially with so many restaurants offering outdoor dining as a way to keep patrons extra safe and socially distanced as we re-open from sheltering in place.
