June 28th is National Tapioca Day. While the origins of this "food holiday" are unknown, the animated Garfield & Friends referred to National Tapioca Pudding Day back in 1988.
If you’ve always wondered what tapioca is, you’re in luck. Tapioca, a starch found in the roots of the cassava plant, is often used to add texture or thicken other foods. Native to Brazil, tapioca can take numerous forms and is used in beverages, paper, glues, paint and other products.
Love it or well, not so much, why not whip up a little tapioca in honor of the annual event? Today is also International Cap Locks Day.
