We all scream for ice cream! There are few things more nostalgic than ice cream, especially during these warm summer months. Perhaps that’s why this month is dubbed National Ice Cream Month!
National Ice Cream Month is held each year in July, and you may be surprised to hear it was made official in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan. According to Wikipedia, he also named the third Sunday of the month National Ice Cream Day.
President Regan realized ice cream was serious business, seeing as 90 percent of the American population consumes the frozen treat. He stated these two events – Ice Cream Month and Ice Cream Day – are events that should be observed with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” Well, don’t mind if we do!
So how will you be celebrating this month and with what flavors? Will you be going just plain vanilla or will you step it up with Rocky Road? Perhaps you’ll enjoy it in a split or as a root beer float….in a bowl or straight out of the pint? Let us know what floats your ice cream boat!
