National Rocky Road Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always observed on June 2
National Rocky Road Day is all about eating ice cream...... specifically Rocky Road ice cream.
Want to make your own Rocky Road Ice Cream? Just add nuts (almonds and/or pecans), mini marshmallows, and chunks of semisweet chocolate to your favorite ice cream recipe. Today would be the perfect day to make, and certainly eat, a batch of Rocky Road ice cream.
If you aren't into making ice cream, or just don't have the time, you can buy Rocky Road ice cream at any grocery store. Or, visit your favorite ice cream store for a cone (large today).
Today's Chuckle: “I saw a study that said speaking in front of a crowd is considered the number one fear of the average person. Number two was death. This means to the average person, if you have to be at a funeral, you would rather be in the casket than doing the eulogy.” - - Jerry Seinfeld
