National Vanilla Ice Cream Day
When is National Vanilla Ice Cream Day? This holiday is always celebrated on July 23
National Vanilla Ice Cream Day is today, a July 23 holiday. Today, we celebrate one of America’s favorite ice cream flavors. Vanilla and chocolate ice cream vie for the taste buds of ice cream lovers. Chocolate may win the popularity contest. But, vanilla is a close second. It is also more refreshing, and more versatile.
We eat a lot of ice cream. Most Americans eat ice cream in some form at least once a week. As a matter of fact, Americans consume about four gallons a year. Obviously, we eat it more often in the summer. The colder the ice cream the better. The resulting “Brain Freeze” is well worth it in the hot summer months. While we eat it less often in the winter months, at least it won’t melt on the ice cream cone faster than we can lick it.
It’s easy to celebrate Vanilla Ice Cream Day on a hot summer day like today. Enjoy it in a cone, a dish, a float, a shake, or in a cake. If you get it in a cone today, ask for extra scoops, and worry about the calories later. Just make sure to eat it quickly, before it melts.
If you go out for ice cream today, watch for discounts and special promotions on vanilla ice cream!
Did You Know? It takes about 3 gallons of whole milk to make one gallon of ice cream.
