National Walnut Day – May 17, 2023


May 16, 2023


Loni Shaw


Did you know that Wednesday, May 17th is National Walnut Day?  That’s Right!  What a fun, silly day to celebrate together.  The Walnut Marketing Board in the United States established National Walnut Day in the 1950s and U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower made the day a public holiday in 1958.  National Walnut Day has continued to be celebrated every year since that time on May 17th!  To say that walnuts are a nutritious food is a bit of an understatement.  We found a great article on that gives us 13 proven health benefits!

To name a few:

1. Rich in Antioxidants
2. Super Plant Source of Omega-3s
3. May Decrease Inflammation
4. Promotes a Healthy Gut
5. May Reduce Risk of Some Cancers

Here at Boo-Shaw Bakery, we have a delicious Vanilla Nut Pastry Cookie you can enjoy to celebrate this day! Our Vanilla Nut cookies have a blend of Madagascar vanilla extract and walnuts with a smooth peanut butter finish.  You must give it a try!

Enjoy the fun, healthy food on this National Day or any day of the year!  Walnuts have a long history and are so good for you!
