Whenever there's a nationally-announced day of food reckoning for something extremely specific and unpopular (say, National Brussels Sprouts Day), our jaded sides come out and we imagine a middle-aged, balding, suit-wearing lobbyist getting key members of the Food Holiday Council extremely wasted and having them sign away a day on the calendar. But for an event like today, National Chocolate Custard Day, the conversation couldn't have lasted longer than 5 seconds: "How about Chocolate Custard ..." "Stop right there. Done." So today, we honor the decision by bringing photos of the delicious milk, cream, and/or egg yolk dessert in all of its various forms from places in the Los Angeles area. In this case, it means not only custard itself, but a whole bunch of custard-adjacent delicacies, because, c'mon, why not?
