  National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day!
When is National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day? Always March 24th!

Origin of this Holiday
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We did however find that this holiday has been celebrated for years. There is plenty of documentation to support that National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day" does indeed exist.

We are wondering if this holiday was created by candy makers- or maybe it was created by the greeting card industry because we did find refrence to it here-

This holiday is referred to as a "National" day., as all food holidays are.   However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate.
So have fun with it and celebrate it!

We found recognition about this holiday from:
Calendar sites and personal Internet sites that blog and share information about this holiday.

Chocolate-coated (or chocolate-covered) raisins are a popular bulk vending product. by wikipedia
"They consist, as the name suggests, of raisins coated in a shell of either milk chocolate or dark chocolate. They have a reputation in many countries of being food eaten in movie theaters, and are an item familiar from the concession counter. The supermarket chains also sell them in bags and they were traditionally sold by weight from jars in candy stores."

Production process
"The raisins are coated with oil and spun in a hot drum with chocolate to cover them."

Varieties and brands
"In some countries, they are also known as Raisinets, which is the earliest and one of the most popular brands of the product, made by Nestlé. Raisinets were introduced in the United States in 1927 by the Blumenthal Chocolate Company. Nestlé acquired the brand in 1984. A large number of other brands also exists. A popular brand in the UK is Paynes Poppets which are sold in small boxes."

"Promotion in Motion, the candy company that make Welch's Fruit Snacks, also creates a Sun-Maid brand of chocolate-covered raisins."

"Vegans have a non-dairy equivalent made of sugar (non-refined), cocoa mass, cocoa butter, and vanillin."

"A similar food, also commonly sold at movie theaters, is the chocolate-coated peanut."
