Today's Reason to Celebrate

National Chocolate Ice Cream Day

It’s National Chocolate Ice Cream Day! Today we celebrate one of the most popular ice cream flavors of all time. Culinary historians believe that the first ice cream flavors were fruit-based, but by the 18th century both vanilla and chocolate were quite common. Thomas Jefferson took a fancy to ice cream while living abroad as the Ambassador to France during the 1780s. It is likely that he is responsible for bringing this delicious frozen treat to America!

Today, the United States produces around 1.6 billion gallons of ice cream each year. Whether you prefer your chocolate ice cream in a cone, a cup, a sundae, or a milkshake, indulge in a scoop (or two!) today! Happy National Chocolate Ice Cream Day!
