National Ice Cream Day: Enjoy Your Yummy Treat Any Day, Anytime

3 Ways to Fully Enjoy Your Frozen Favorite

Were you able to have a great time last July 18th when the country celebrated National Ice Cream Day? It’s one celebration that’s always warmly welcomed by Americans.

The annual event celebrates the deliciousness of this popular and refreshing treat, which dates back to 550 BC during the time of the Persian Empire. It has evolved over generations to become one of the world’s favorite desserts.

National Ice Cream Day has been celebrated every third Sunday of July since 1984 when former President Ronald Reagan proclaimed July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday as the day devoted to ice cream.

 

The Evolution of Ice Cream

It is believed that the first iteration of the ice cream originated during the Persian Empire when the locals served scoops of ice (or snow) and poured concentrated grape juice over them. The Persians liked the flavored snow so much that they kept it in underground shelters where the temperatures were low to keep it from melting. This way, they could enjoy the treat even when the weather became warm.

In 697 AD, the Tang Dynasty started making frozen dairy using salt and ice.

The creation of ice cream as we know it today was credited to Antonio Latini, from Naples, Italy. He reportedly made the first frozen sorbet in 1642.

 

3 Ways to Embrace the Spirit of National Ice Cream Day

Even though National Ice Cream Day has already come to pass, you can still enjoy ice cream any day and anytime you want. Kids Car Donations presents three sure-fire ways of enjoying this treat as if every day is National Ice Cream Day:

2. Sample an exotic ice cream flavor.

There are plenty of innovative new flavors created by ice cream makers all over the country. Try out a unique flavor you haven’t tried before. You just might fall in love with it,

3. Make homemade ice cream.
