In 1984, President Ronald Reagan declared July to be National Ice Cream Month (www.idfa.org)… which is a good thing because I’ve been eating a lot of ice cream this past weekend!
And to celebrate some businesses are offering free treats!!! Check out this link… http://hip2save.com/2013/07/19/national-ice-cream-day-freebies-deals-2/
Some interesting facts about eating ice cream…
- Americans are the #1 consumers of ice cream worldwide, eating on average 20 quarts a year! New Zealand comes in at #2.
- About 9% of all milk produced by US Dairy Farmers is used to make ice cream.
- Vanilla is the most popular flavor, with chocolate coming in at a surprisingly distant 2nd.
I’ve created a Pinterest Board dedicated just to ice cream… yum!!! Check it out for some great flavors and recipes! http://www.pinterest.com/gingergoosebout/national-ice-cream-month/
And to top it off with a cherry – this month I will be raffling off an chilly prize inspired by Ice Cream! Share your thoughts about ice cream, your favorite flavors, your recipes and links to get your entry! (winner will be randomly selected from posts at end of month).
