Perhaps you’ve seen the sudden rise of ice cream-related posts on your social media feeds or Kim Kardashian’s recent ice cream licking outing with Kanye West. But if you didn’t know: July is national Ice Cream Month.
In 1984, US President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day.
President Reagan recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that was enjoyed by over 90 percent of the nation’s population. He called for all people of the United States to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities,” but clearly, the love-affair with ice cream goes beyond the US’ borders.
Americans round-up the World’s top ten ice cream consumer countries, finishing second with 13.7 litres per capita, behind Australia.
