It’s National Ice Cream Day Tomorrow July 16th 2017

It’s National Ice Cream Day Tomorrow July 16th 2017

 

I don’t typically write about National This or That Day, but this one strikes near to the heart, or perhaps I should say stomach.

 

No doubt anyone else who is an ice cream lover would agree.

 

Yummy Ice Cream

 

And who says you just get to celebrate ice cream one day out of the year?! Although officially President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month, and the 3rd Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day, way back in 1984. I started celebrating before that and continue to uphold the tradition!

 

Chocolate sorbet gelatoSo tomorrow is the big day, and a great time to celebrate a wonderful part of the dairy food group. No doubt there are plenty of opportunities in your area to enjoy the ice cream you like best, unless you are not a fan – whether it’s free offerings at retailers, chain ice cream stores (Baskin Robbins, Carvel’s), or buying your fave at the grocery store or the best local ice cream joint in town.

 

There are certainly fond memories of some terrific ice cream places over the year  - Scoops in the LA area; Fentons Creamery on Piedmont in Oakland; Graeter’s Ice Cream (in Cincinnati and elsewhere in the Midwest); Nauset Ice Cream, Emack and Bolio’s, the Brewster Scoop, and the Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Store on Cape Cod; and a long time favorite when we lived in the Boston area burbs with the kids – Kimball’s Ice Cream, with more than 50 flavors and huge portions (at least that’s my memory).

 

There are some fond memories of making ice cream with my Dad when I was a kid, and we often made our own with our 2 girls over the years.

 

And of course I include gelato when thinking about ice cream, and alternate between the two whenever possible – the local place to get the best gelato is Gaia Gelato (the owners/chefs are from Rome) in Carlsbad Village. My very favorite is the choloate sorbet - to die for!! It brings back fond memories of numerous gelateria in Florence and Rome!

 

Another Carlsbad favorite includes Cold Stone Creamery on Carlsbad Boulevard. And I've heard good things about Sub Zero Ice Cream and Yogurt. Aaaahhhh, the options I have to keep exploring!!

 

And we get to celebrate tonight, a day early, with plain old vanilla on a home-made berry lattice pie my wife just made, here ready to go into the oven!

So what are your best recommendations to eat ice cream in your area? And what’s your favorite, if you have one? Any delicious photos you’d like to share?
