Yesterday was National Ice Cream Day. In 1984, Ronald Reagan designated the 3rd Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day, and in fact, the entire month of July as Ice Cream Month. Thank you, Mr. Reagan, for recognizing such a fine American treat. No need to make excuses for this, cold, frosty indulgence (at least one day out of the year.)
Some fun facts:
Of all days, most ice cream is purchased on Sundays.
The U.S. enjoys an average of 48 pints of ice cream per person, per year, more than any other country.
It takes an average of 50 licks to polish off a single-scoop ice cream cone.
It takes 12 lbs. of milk to make just one gallon of ice cream.
The top flavors are vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. I like maple nut and bubble gum.
