It is July, and thanks to former President Ronald Reagan’s proclamation in 1984, we the people of the United States are called to observe July “National Ice Cream Month” with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” Happily, this is something that the majority of us can agree on as 90% of Americans regularly enjoy ice cream. I hope you will choose to comply with this declaration and celebrate this wonderful treat and actively enjoy America’s love for Ice Cream.
Fun Fact to know: California is the leading state producing over 142 million gallons of ice cream last year.
Recently, the California Milk Advisory Board (CAMB) did an interesting survey to find out where consumers find themselves enjoying ice cream, frozen yogurt and gelato. The number one response, by over two-thirds, was either on the couch or in front of the TV (64%).
