History of National Chocolate Wafer Day
The origination of National Chocolate Wafer Day remains obscure. It is believed to be created by a food company, i.e., National Biscuit Company (now known as Nabisco), to enhance their sales and also to market the chocolate wafer widely. In 1924, the chocolate wafers were begun to sold by Nabisco in tins along with sugar wafers and ginger wafers. According to a Washington Post article, the Nabisco’s published an advertisement in the year 1929 for the chocolate wafers. The ad showed the wafers being refrigerated overnight with the whipped cream resulting in a mouthwatering dessert. In 1930, each tin had the recipe of refrigerated chocolate wafer roll printed on it. Thus the chocolate wafer evolved and reached its popularity.
