Today is National Ice Cream Day!!!


In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by a full 90% of the nation's population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with "appropriate ceremonies and activities."

The International Ice Cream Association (Did you know they even existed?) encourages retailers and consumers to celebrate July as National Ice Cream Month. In 2007, National Ice Cream Day will be Sunday, July 15. That is today!!!

So in celebration, post a comment as to what is your favorite flavor is, if you please then go out and buy some today!! Mine used to be Rocky Road or Mora which is like Raspberry but, you could only get it in Colombia. I love Coffee Mocha or Dulce de Leche now or on rare occasion a good freshly made farm fresh Strawberry.

Cherry Garcia if it is ice cream with milk.

However, I truly enjoy sherbets since they are lighter and made from fruit juices. Favorite: lemon.

Oh, now I have to have some and it's too late to go to the store! Argggh.

I've always been a fan of mint chocolate chip. But honestly, I'm not picky. Today I had Neopolitan and the BF had chocolate... and we didn't know it was Ice Cream Day1htt

Question about National Ice Cream Day: Would that be the third Sunday of EVERY month (as it should be), or just the third Sunday of July?

Not that the answer would change my daily celebration of ice cream...

Ice cream! I'm a fan of peppermint - which is hard to find, mint chocolate chip (but it can't be green), chocolate and coffee. The mints are really good for a bowl. If I want milkshakes I tend to go for chocolate or coffee.

I love mint chocolate chip (the white not the green). Also I am a sucker for Chunkey Monkey (I only wish they didn't have all the walnuts in there).

Lately, Mint Chocolate Chip (but if I can get 2 scoops I'll add in a creamy chocolate!). For Ben & Jerry's, though, it's Phish Food all the way!
