It's National Ice Cream Month

July 20, 2016

Ice Cream Cone

To some, eating 20 quarts of ice cream a year might sound like a lot. But, to most Americans, that’s the norm. Perhaps that's why back in 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day.
