I guess ice cream is one of those things that are beyond imagination

L.M. Montgomery

Ice Cream is without a doubt the perfect dessert ever devised by man. It’s rich and creamy, full of the flavors of summer while being made from the cold like the winter, and is perfect at any time of the year. Ice Cream can be used to make sandwiches or entire cakes, or just eaten as a scoop all on its own. Ice Cream Day celebrates this delicious treat and all the varieties it comes in!

History of Ice Cream Day

Ice Cream has been around for a very long time since the first time milk and ice saw each other and fell in love, so long has Ice Cream been around. Throughout the years it has come in every conceivable flavor, from gentle and universally loved vanilla, to the unusual flavor that is crab ice cream. That’s right, that’s how amazingly versatile ice cream is, you can literally flavor it like anything!

Due to the difficulty of obtaining snow in hot summer months, ice cream used to be very difficult to obtain and reserved only for those of wealth and note. Thankfully with the advances made in refrigeration technology we’re able to have ice cream any time of year!

That’s why we enjoy Choco-Tacos in the summertime, banana splits in the winter, ice cream cakes in the springtime, and ice cream sandwiches in the fall! What a wonderful world we live in to be able to enjoy this rich and delicious treat any time of the year!

Of course, these days we have unusual variations of ice cream as well, such as those made instantly by using liquid nitrogen, or those served up in individually frozen beads. What wonders the world has created for us to love on Ice Cream Day.

How to celebrate Ice Cream Day

Well, first of all, get yourself out there and enjoy a heaping scoop of ice cream! Then maybe an ice cream sandwich, and then a delicious milkshake! Ok, are you sugared up enough yet? We didn’t think so!

The next thing you have to do is wolf down a delicious banana split and share an ice cream cake with your closest friends. Or just keep it all to yourself, we won’t tell! Ice Cream Day is your chance to really indulge without any guilt or shame, and while you’re at it, try coming up with your own flavors!
