Happy National Ice Cream Day! As the heat wave continues, National Ice Cream day could not have come at a better time. This holiday was established by President Ronald Reagan in 1984 kicking it off with an ice cream party on Capitol Hill.
Ice Cream is such a popular treat that 26 liters of ice cream are consumed by the average American each year with a total spend of $20 billion on ice cream purchases from American consumers. We also are the top producers of ice cream in the world, producing over 898 million gallons per year.
Check out these places to enjoy the refreshing treat on a hot summer’s day.
