Every year, National Ice Cream Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in July. This summer, the day set aside to honor every yummy ice cream flavor is July 18th.
Some fun facts....
Several shops will be offering free giveaways or other special offers to celebrate the day. In years past, Baskin-Robbins, Dewey's Bakery, Dairy Queen, Cold Stone Creamery, Carvel, Dippin' Dots, Whole Foods, Ben & Jerry's, McDonald's, and Publix have offered free or reduced-priced ice cream in honor of National Ice Cream Day.
You can also celebrate National Ice Cream Day by inviting your family and friends over to host a "build your own ice cream sundae" party, complete with all the fixings.
Here's a delicious recipe for you to try from Taste of Home.
