"I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!" Shout this mantra loudly because it’s National Ice Cream Month!
In 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued Proclamation 5219, which designated July as National Ice Cream Month. He also declared that the third Sunday in July would be National Ice Cream Day. Yup, that is this coming Sunday! We’re definitely thankful, because ice cream is a summertime favorite for people of all ages. With hundreds of flavors and toppings to choose from, you can't go wrong with ice cream!
Whether you get it in a cup or in a cone, atop a waffle or in a banana split, make sure to visit your local ice cream shop today and get some cold, delicious ice cream. Or, if you want to be daring, you could try to make your own ice cream! Check out this great post for a how to: Holding on to the Harvest.
I love ice cream so much that I wanted to celebrate National Ice Cream Month with my co-workers. If you have a long distance to travel, try packing like I did – it will be less of a hassle and will save you time before you head out.
The night before, chop all of your dry toppings and fill your divided snack server (sold exclusively at Walmart). It will save you a ton of stress when you’re packing all your sundae essentials before you go.
Next, you’ll need a medium- to large-sized tote to put everything in along with some ice packs. It’s like an instant cooler!
It may seem like a lot of stuff to bring along, but these storage tips should make sharing your love of ice cream simple. And remember its ice cream, so not much is coming back home with you!
