Food Holiday Link Party: Chocolate Month


I’m excited for the start of this new feature on Rate the Plate Utah:  a weekly link party spotlighting a current food holiday.  When you think about Food Holidays, they’re really quite ridiculous – a day just for celebrating Candied Orange Peels (which is May 4th, by the way)?  But I guess the ridiculousness of them just adds to the appeal in my book. 

In the past, we’ve celebrated some food holidays with a round-up of some of our favorite finds across the Internet including Pancake Day, Ice Cream Soda Day, Corned Beef & Cabbage Day, and the fan favorite (which isn’t actually an official food holiday), Dr. Seuss’s Birthday.  Now we’d like to change it up a bit and ask you to contribute your favorite posts related to that food holiday. 

According to The Nibble (my favorite food holiday resource), February is Celebration of Chocolate Month, so we are going to start our first link party off with a bang in celebration of Chocolate!  Link up any chocolate-related post (linky is open Monday through Friday).  On Saturday, we’ll feature our favorites and the most-clicked on post.  Each week, we’ll be back with a new food holiday celebration.  For those of you who want to plan ahead, here’s what’s coming up for March:

March 4 – 8    National Peanut Month
March 11-15   Chocolate Chip Cookie Week
March 18-22   National Noodle Month
March 25-29   National Waffle Day (March 25)

A few rules:

  • Please follow Rate the Plate Utah. To make sure you get future link party notifications in a timely manner, we recommend subscribing by email.
  • Link to a specific post (not your home page) that is related to the theme (we reserve the right to delete any posts that are inappropriate, spammy, or otherwise not related to the current link party theme). Can be a new or old post.
  • Browse the other posts and leave comments or pin the ones you love.
  • Please share by posting about our link party on Facebook, Twitter, and/or putting our party button anywhere on your blog.


Time for the fun!  Link up your chocolatey goodness & then come back on Saturday to see if you are one of our featured friends!
