Fun Facts!

Did you know . . .

that the word dessert comes from the French word desservir, which means to clear the table?
September 4 is Eat an Extra Dessert Day, a day that encourages people to treat their sweet tooth with a second helping of dessert! Here's how you can celebrate:
- Guiltlessly indulge yourself in a little extra dessert on this day and inform everyone you know. We are convinced that it will soon become everyone's favorite made-up holiday!

- Spend some time in the kitchen whipping up some delicious desserts to share with your friends, family and co-workers.

- Have a dessert party! Ask guests to bring their favorite dessert to share and spend the evening enjoying the desserts. Make sure you are all equipped with healthy food for the sugar crash afterwards!
