Lick, slurp, bite, scoop. Doesn’t matter how you eat it, as long as you do. July is known as National Ice Cream month!  And it’s all thanks to President Ronald Regan, when he so graciously put this rule into effect in 1984. 

Every year on the third Sunday of July, you can indulge in sweet creamy treats, guilt-free and sometimes at discounted price. This Sunday, July 17, multiple creameries across the U.S. will be offering up frosty deals and free cones in honor of the beloved summertime staple giving us all an excuse to indulge. If you’re looking for a free cone, free scoop or discount head over to Baskin Robbins, Coldstone, Carvel, Friendly’s, Tastee Freez or Yogurtland.
