Sunday is National Ice Cream Day

Yes!  This Sunday, July 17th...!

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed July as National Ice Cream Month. He also established National Ice Cream Day as the third Sunday in the month.   I knew I liked him!

There are so many ways to celebrate....

Breyer's Ice Cream is buy-one-get-one-free at Publix this week. You could invite some friends over for a make-your-own-sundae party - B.Y.O.T. (your fav topping)!

And/or, your family could make your own or visit an ice cream place.  Chain stores like Dairy Queen or Baskin Robbins are a safe bet because they are consistent and offer a variety of menu items to make everyone happy.

But, we like to find locally-owned shops.  One easy way to do that is to use Google Maps.  At the top of the screen, type in any address (if you are going to be at Grandma’s, type in her address), then click search.  Once your location is viewable on the map, go back up to the same search field and type in “ice cream” (or “soda fountain”).  You may find a hidden gem like this quaint old pharmacy with soda fountain counter service we found a couple summers back!

All in all – ice cream and fun memories! Family Approved!
