There’s just something about a cold ice cream cone on a boiling hot summer day that lands in the right spot.
National Ice Cream Day provides just the right excuse to down buckets of ice cream of all flavours and designs.
When is National Ice Cream Day?
The whole month of July is actually National Ice Cream Month with National Ice Cream Day designated for the third Sunday in July every year.
The joint resolution originating the celebration was signed into public law in 1984. Every year, the celebrations are publicized by ice cream manufacturers.
This year, National Ice Cream Day falls on July 21. Did you know that back in the day, ice cream was only reserved for royals and rich folk until refrigeration was invented?
Today, you can make ice cream easily at home with only a few ingredients and the right machine.
How to Celebrate National Ice Cream Day?
Traditionally, ice cream is made from full-fat dairy but with so many alternative diets these days, you can find ice cream for almost every lifestyle – vegan, low carb, dairy free, keto, lactose intolerant, gluten-free, etc.
National Ice Cream Day is a super fun day to celebrate and eat as much of your favourite ice cream treats as you want.
