Every summer we get excited for the month of July, as it celebrates one of our favorite desserts: ice cream! President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month in 1984, and specifically, the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day… so this year, National Ice Cream Day is Sunday, July 16.
In his proclamation, President Regan called for everyone in the United States to observe the month with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” We interpret that as taking the opportunity to partake in at least one delicious frozen treat. And there is more than one option… beyond ice cream, this is the chance to try gelato, soft serve, ice pops, FroYo, frozen custard or water ice! Check out the guide below for some helpful information and fun facts:
