Hello, everyone and happy summer! These hot days always make me crave one of my childhood favorite treats – ice cream! Even now as an adult and a dietitian I still enjoy a great ice cream on a hot summer day while keeping in mind good nutrition. Life is all about balance and I think we all can enjoy a sweet treat every once in a while without feeling guilty. One of my favorite picks is Kemps Vanilla Frozen Yogurt, with no sugar added. Not only does it satisfy my sweet tooth with it’s amazing flavor, but it’s no added sugar – yay!
You guys, today is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day! Who can seriously resist this scrumptious hand-held frozen treat? It’s really no surprise that the ice cream sandwich ranks as the second best-selling ice cream novelty in America, with the 30-44 age group buying them the most. In fact, the ice cream sandwich is so American it is sold at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C..
National Ice Cream Month has come to an end, but there’s no reason you shouldn’t keep the celebration going as long as you want! After all, ice cream is one of our favorite treats all year round.

Today, which is National Hot Fudge Sundae Day, is all about celebrating and enjoying the tastiness of this unique dessert that was invented at the very end of the 1800s and gained popularity in the beginning of the 1900s. Do you know why it’s spelled “sundae”?
It’s National Vanilla Ice Cream Day! While there are countless ice cream flavors out there, vanilla ice cream continues to be the most popular. Surprisingly enough, however; it was not the first ice cream flavor. It wasn’t until the discovery of the Americas that chocolate and vanilla crept onto the ice cream scene. Being able to indulge in basic ice cream flavors like vanilla and chocolate used to be a luxury reserved for high society.
We’re celebrating our love for cool treats this Ice Cream Month! There is no doubt that America loves its ice cream. Ninety-eight percent of all U.S. households purchase ice cream, with more sold on Sunday than any other day of the week. Eighty-seven percent have ice cream in their freezer at any given time. And this month is the perfect time to stock up!
If you had to pick between ice cream, cake or pie for dessert, what would you choose? Luckily you don’t have to! To continue the Ice Cream Month celebrations, we thought it’d be fun to share our favorite ice cream cakes and pies recipes!

In July, we begin our homage to all things ice cream in honor of National Ice Cream Month! If you’re looking for a way to cool down, nothing goes better with the heat of summer than ice cream and novelties. In fact, 90% of American households will eat ice cream at least once over the course of a year, and over 60% of U.S. households will spend money on ice cream novelties, such as ice cream sandwiches and popsicles.
Ice cream is without a doubt one of the most versatile and customizable frozen treats. Whether you like it straight from the carton or dolled up with endless toppings, ice cream is great in whatever form it comes – in a bowl, scooped into a cup with soda or smooshed between cookies.
