Great Moments in American Style History: V-J Day

To celebrate this great event, we're doing Buy One Get One Free on Zaarly through the end of August. Check out our store here

On this day in 1945, Japan officially surrendered to end their involvement in WWII. Learn more about V-J Day.

This famous photo was taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt. Learn more about the photo and see the famous couple reunited in this video.

Fun additional story: B gets a lot of his culinary inspiration from his grandmother. While that part is not a story, V-J Day was the day his grandmother and grandfather went on a date for the first time, setting in motion the chain of events that leads you to this web page today.

So, thank you America for being strong during WWII. And, thank you Grandma Helen for going out with Grandpa George that day.

When you need to celebrate the strength and community of the American people, make sure to reach for flavor, not just heat.
