National Buttercrunch Day – January 20, 2022 Activities, History, Celebration

National Buttercrunch Day is celebrated annually on January 20th. It was established in 1912 by the National Association of Biscuit, Cracker, and Cookie Manufacturers. The day celebrates the invention of buttercrunch crackers on this date in 1875. Buttercrunch is a type of cookie that originated from England, where they’re called “Biscoff” or “biscuit.” 

Buttercroughs are small cookies made with flour, sugar, butter, baking powder, and salt. They have a crisp texture with an irregular shape. These cookies were originally thought to be more crumbly than most other types of cookies so they could not be chopped into uniform pieces for individual sale like some other types can be.

In 1875, a Philadelphia businessman named Charles R. Jones was the first to create buttercrunch cookies in his bakery with butterscotch chips mixed into them. The Buttercrunch Company began selling their products commercially and establishing popularity across the U.S. Soon afterward, they were being sold at high-end department stores like Macy’s and Wanamaker’s. Today, buttercrunch cookies are a favorite among many people.

History Of National Buttercrunch Day

Buttercrunch is a type of hard candy that can be had as either an end-in-itself or to garnish other desserts. To make it, you combine chocolate chips with sugar and buttery goodness for the most luxurious texture imaginable! The almonds add interest by enhancing its rich flavor while making every bite crunchier than before – this stuff goes down easy even if your mouth isn’t awake enough yet from eating too many pieces at once (but don’t worry because there’s more where THAT came from).

Almond buttercrunch is a type of candy that originates from Northern Europe. It’s believed to have been invented as an alternative for people who were sick or injured, so they could eat something filling and tasty on their way back home from getting medical attention!

Almond buttercrunch was first introduced to the United States in the early 20th century when it became commercially available because by this time mass production of hard candy had already become quite widespread.


1. Learn how to make almond buttercrunch

Making almond buttercrunch is quite simple and you can easily make it at home. If only I had known this delicious recipe before all those hours spent trying to find a store that sold my favorite snack!

2. Invite friends for coffee

Almond buttercrunch is a rich and sweet addition to your morning coffee. The almonds bring something extra that you can’t get from other nuts, making this treat taste even better!

3. Make your variations

Almond and buttercrunch are an especially tasty combination, but that doesn’t mean you can never add another layer of complexity to the candy.


1. Greek origins

The word ‘candy’ comes from the Arabic word for a Greek island, which was called Gandhi. 13th century Arabs cultivated sugar cane on this land and developed methods to produce molasses that would later be used in making hard candies like slabs or balls of a caramelized brown liquid filled with brittle nuggets.”

2. Used as a preservative

Candying is the process of applying a coating of molten sugar over fruits and nuts to preserve them. This can be done in many different ways, but this article will focus on one specific type: syrup-coated apples!

If you’ve ever been curious about how they make those colorful wonderlands we see at fall festivals around town or tasted an old fashioned hard candied sweet potato with its chewy molasses flavor then here’s your chance to learn more while also

3. Sugar used as a spice

During the Middle Ages, sugar was used as a spice in Europe and it became one of the most luxurious items anyone could have.

The costliness of this sweetener had made it so few people were able to afford it even though they wanted some too much because its production required a huge effort from farmers who grew crops like cane or beets which are needed for processing into molasses before being turned back into simple table sugars known today with names such as sucrose, glucose-fructose mixture called agave nectar.

4. Rum-flavored candy

Tastes have changed a lot since the earliest toffees, but one thing that has not is Rum.

The smell and taste of this sugar-coated liqueur can still be found in many modern-day confections from licorice allsorts candy bars to truffles made with it as an ingredient – which participants will often dip their fingers into before eating them!

5.‘Toffee’ is of Creole origin

There is a lot of controversy surrounding how Creole ‘toffee’ got its name. Some people say it came from the French word for butter, Tudieu! Others claim that this treat first appeared during slavery when slaves were given sugar as payment-in-kind instead of cash or gold coins because there was no reliable way to measure their work hours in pounds and ounces.

This article will discuss both sides but ultimately concludes with evidence supporting one theory over another so you can make up your mind about whether creolization played any role at all in our ancient ancestor’s favorite recipe…


1. It celebrates our culinary history

Americans should celebrate National Almond Buttercrunch Day because it’s the day our ancestors created one of America’s most loved treats.

A few thousand years ago in ancient Egypt, people were making candy out of almonds and honey for fun or religious ceremonies when they realized how sweet it tasted on its own – no added sugar necessary! The first mention we have about this combo comes from an Egyptian tomb inscription which reads: “The ms [food] consists entirely (?)of klan maa Shakar; nothing else is mixed into them.” This means that at least some Egyptians enjoyed their snacks without mixing anything else with them such as salt or spice…or maybe even butter?!

2. It provides a sweet treat

National Almond Buttercrunch Day is the perfect time to ease into that much-needed break and indulge in something sweet.

3. It is a good way to market your business

Almond buttercrunch is a sweet treat that can be made by many people. It’s quite simple, and the process only takes about 5 minutes of your time! You’ll need almond flour or meal to start with, then you just mix in some brown sugar into it until it is nice and consistent before rolling up balls sized pieces between two sheets of pans covered lightly flat bottomed baking dishes – make sure there are no gaps for them to escape through because if they do this will cause cracks on top due pastry drying out during cooking stage which leads me onto my next point…


A Syndrome of Inconsistent Cracking – this occurs when toffee doesn’t set up well and it can be caused by several factors including:

– unevenly distributed heat distribution in the oven.

– not letting toffee cool long enough before putting into a pan or cutting shapes/sizes too soon after cooking time has finished because doing so will cause them to start sticking together.

– high humidity levels in the air can cause toffee to sweat after it’s cooled down. If this happens, you’ll need to let it dry out for about 24 hours before trying again! (Reminder: try picking a day where there is no rain or any wet weather – if necessary use an umbrella!)
