We associate sweet things with this holiday celebrated by adults and children on May 13. This bright spring extravaganza is called National Fruit Cocktail Day and refers to drinks and light salads made from juicy fruits. Treats can be useful and harmful, depending on the amount of sugar added to the cocktail and the individual amount of carbs a person can afford to ingest. No need to talk about boring things. It is better to enjoy the palette of juicy flavors.
Fruit cocktail in a can first appeared in American stores in 1893. It was made from fruits and had an unattractive appearance. Herbert Gray, who presented his creation in 1930, is called the creator of the natural fruit cocktail. This culinary feat was officially recognized in 1958.
