National Ice Cream Month Indulgences

July 1, 2019

It’s National Ice Cream Month! Let the homage to all things ice cream begin! July was established as National Ice Cream Month in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan. The first mention of ice cream in America dates back to 1744. It wasn’t until the 1850s and many technological advancements later that it became widely available for the average family.[1] Today, ice cream and novelties take many innovative forms with very unique flavors.

This month is the perfect time to stock up! You’ll find special deals on ice cream and novelties in many local supermarkets throughout July. Try one of our favorites:

Whichever variety you choose, make sure it’s at top quality by following these safe handling and storing tips:

  • Keep your frozen purchases in a separate section of the cart while shopping

  • Store your frozen treats in the main part of the freezer, not on the door, where they are subject to more fluctuating temperatures
