Did you know that July is National Ice Cream month??? I don’t know about you, but I love ice cream. Ice cream is a comfort food that I love most in the Summer time, and when you are having a blah day it is always nice to snuggle up to your favorite pint. Well, not exactly snuggle, but a pint of Ben & Jerry’s and a spoon in hand is sure to bring a smile to your face! When I head to the store, I always find myself staring into the ice cream case at all the different Ben and Jerry’s flavors and I can almost never pick out one flavor because something new always catches my eye.
National Ice Cream Month is celebrated by the US every July. This month was designated as national ice cream month by Ronald Reagan in 1984. He also appointed the third Sunday in July as National Ice Cream Day Reagan recognized the popularity of ice cream in the United States (90% of the nation’s population consumes ice cream) and stated that these two events should be observed with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” Unfortunately, many people do not even know that America even has a National Ice Cream Month.
Some of my most favorite Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavors include the ever popular Cherry Garcia, Karamel Sutra, and my newest favorite and one of their newest editions Mission to Marzipan (let me wipe the drool from my keyboard). Let’s face it you can’t just buy one pint and head home, you at lest have to get a few days worth or even a week’s worth so you don’t have to pout when you polish off a pint while watching a sappy love story, or you have had a stressful day, or just because you gotta have it. At least you know you always have more!
I don’t know how they do it but they manage to pack the right amount of stuff into that little pint, that make your taste buds do a little dance, and make your happy endorphins go crazy. I don’t know how they make the caramel in Karamel Sutra stay perfectly gooey in the middle but I do know that their ice cream is one of the best in my opinion!
