Get your sweet tooth ready!


Okay, people! Dana Mentink, here. I’m happy to bring you this breaking news...July 23  is National Vanilla Ice Cream Day! I know...right? You’re stoked! Me too...but in order to celebrate this amazing summer holiday appropriately, I feel like we need to learn some trivia. Since I’m researching the art of making ice cream for an upcoming writing proposal, it’s the perfect time to scoop up some fun facts and deliver them unto you! All right! So here they come!

1.  Vanilla is the most popular ice cream flavor.

2. Waffle cones were invented in 1904 when a traveling salesman encouraged an ice cream vendor to serve their ice cream on rolled up waffles when they ran out of paper dishes.

3.   The Haagen Daz brand was established by two Americans who made up a Danish sounding name. The words are not, in fact, real Danish words.

4.  New Zealand consumes more ice cream per capita than any other country.

5. The average American eats around 45 pints of ice cream per year.

All right! Now that we’ve enjoyed some sweet ice cream knowledge, it’s time for the ultimate question. What’s your favorite flavor and how do you like your ice cream? Scooped? In cups? In milkshakes? With toppings? Oh the choices! I can’t wait to hear your picks!

  1. Unfortunately I can’t eat ice cream anymore it gives me a stomachache. But my favorite flavor is mint chip. Now I can eat sherbet which is good and sorbet‘s. And there are a few almond milk-based ice cream’s that I like but it’s not quite the same. That’s funny trivia. Those Sundays look awfully good

  3. My favorite ice cream is my Daddy's lemon slice ice cream. Although anything with chocolate in it rates a close second.
