In case you didn’t know, it is National Cow Appreciation Day! At FoodtoEat, we think the cow doesn’t get enough credit. They’re providers of one of the main ingredients in a lot of our favorite foods, milk, and are just too cute not to love. Here are the top 5 reasons everybody should be thankful for cows on National Cow Appreciation Day:

1. Ice Cream

Not to take away the spotlight from the cow, but it is also National Ice Cream month. There would be a National Ice Cream Month without the cows contribution to ice cream – milk. Can you imagine a world without Mr. Softee on the streets with soft serve ice cream? Didn’t think so. So, let’s all say “thanks” to the cow for ice cream.

2. Milk Truck’s entire existence

If you haven’t been to one of the city’s best curators of grilled cheese – you’re seriously missing out. Milk Truck not only has tasty grilled cheese, but also make a mean milkshake. Without cows, we would never know how delicious a classic grilled cheese with a dark chocolate milkshake would be! With a name like Milk Truck, how can we not be thankful to the cow for it?

3. Nutella

At FoodtoEat, we always have a large jar of Nutella on standby. We often wonder if there’s anything Nutella doesn’t go with (spoiler alert: not likely). Nutella is made with condensed milk from our favorite animal – the cow! This yummy hazelnut spread is taking over the foodie world and we don’t mind one bit

4.  Lattes with cute latte art

Ever walk into your favorite coffee shop and get a latte with the cutest little design on it? It always makes your day just a little bit brighter – even if it is an early morning. Speaking of brightening your day, look at this adorable kitty cat latte art. Try not to “aww” out loud, I dare you.

5. 75% off Chocolate After Valentine’s Day

If we’re being completely honest, Valentine’s Day should really be re-named “75% off Chocolate Eve” because that’s what it’s become. Maybe you don’t need that entire bag of Dove Chocolate Hearts with inspiring messages in them, but you’re practically obligated to buy them because they’re that cheap. Thanks, cows, for allowing us to treat ourselves the day after Valentine’s Day.

BONUS: Pizza

You think we’d make this list without pizza? We love it all; grandma slices, greasy thin crust, $1 slices at 3 am, as long as there is cheese involved. What better way to observe National Cow Appreciation Day than ordering a pizza on FoodtoEat? Top it off with dessert (think: cheesecake, cupcakes, tiramisu – thanks cows) and you’ll find yourself loving cows as much as we do.
