Today is a very special day: Not only do we celebrate the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but it is also National Cheese Lover’s Day! This might sound cheesy, but it is a grate holiday! Could I brie any more excited?! OK, OK I will stop with the cheese puns before I turn blue in the face. I just want the world to know how to celebrate the most delicious and versatile snack — everything from yummy recipes to discounts on how to score cheese today.
Cheese is such an important part of our diets. On Twitter, Idaho Milk Products reminds us not only how Gouda cheese is, but the nutritional value as well. Cheese is a great source of calcium, fat and protein. It also contains high amounts of vitamins A and B-12.
Cheese lover’s have even more to celebrate when companies ooze with deals. What’s better than having two unofficial holidays like National Cheese Lover’s Day and Pie Day in the same week? Celebrating these “holidays” with Domino’s carryout special all week long! Domino’s is offering customers large two-topping carryout pizzas for $5.99 each from Jan. 20 to 26.
“While some of the better-known holidays are over, celebrating fun unofficial holidays continues,” said Jenny Fouracre, Domino’s spokesperson. “We want cheese lovers, deal seekers, and all pizza pie fanatics to celebrate with our $5.99 large carryout pizzas.”
Customers can choose any two toppings as part of the deal – whether it be extra cheese, pepperoni and sausage, or double green peppers. Domino’s $5.99 weeklong carryout deal is applicable over the phone, in-store, at dominos.com or via Domino’s mobile ordering apps.
Dairy Farmers of America also shared a fun fact about cheese on Twitter. “America’s cheese cheese consumption has more than doubled over the past 40 years. The average American enjoys 37 pounds per year.”
