National Ice Cream Day!

Did you know that July was National Ice Cream Month?  Did you know the 3rd Sunday in July is National Ice Cream Day?

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan officially declared the month of July, National Ice Cream Month.  He went even further to declare the 3rd Sunday of July, National Ice Cream Day.  I know you guys are probably wondering why I would even know this information.  I recently took an Economics class where I did an entire paper on ice cream.  I managed to write 11 pages on all things ice cream.  Here’s a few things I found out that you may be interested to know.

  1. When I worked in the ice cream parlor. Best job in the world. Butter Pecan was the favorite ice cream. Everybody and their mama wanted that ice cream.

    Ice cream is one of my favorite treats. My go to flavor is always vanilla because you can always dress it up.
