Yum! Ice cream. So, do you have a favorite flavor? How often do you eat your favorite ice cream?

This is the month to really celebrate one of America‘s favorite desserts. Since July is ice cream month (proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan in 1984) it’s reason to celebrate your favorite.

Did you know, it takes approximately 1.4 gallons of fresh, Arizona milk to make one gallon of ice cream! And the first ice cream parlor opened in New York in 1776 (probably to counter the challenges of starting a revolution).

American Farm Bureau Federation recently completed a Foodiecast highlighting this special month. Listen to July ‘National Ice Cream Month’ here.

Remember to go to Fill Your Plate, to search for an ice cream maker.
