Let the party begin! I’d first like to welcome all of our new readers. You regulars might notice some new names popping up in the comments this month. As always, I’m sure we’ll make them feel like a part of the Ice Cream Journal family.
July 1 marks the beginning of National Ice Cream Month, a month-long celebration of ice cream that was decreed by President Ronald Reagan back in 1984 (he also designated the third Sunday in July as National Ice Cream Day). We at Turkey Hill like National Ice Cream Month because we make ice cream for a living, but also because it gives us a chance to do some fun stuff here on the Ice Cream Journal.
Like I said in an entry last week, in July we’ll be posting a new entry every day (including weekends). Monday’s will feature ice cream trivia (with a prize awarded to one of the people who get all the answers right) and we’ll give away TWO free containers of Turkey Hill ice cream to one commenter chosen at random from EACH entry. So keep those comments coming…we love to read them.
But enough about all of that, let’s start celebrating! I suggest a Turkey Hill ice cream cake to pay homage to this special month. Or just a big bowl of your favorite flavor. Either way, it’s a fitting tribute to the best time of the year. If anyone wants to share ideas for how they’re going to celebrate National Ice Cream Month, let us know with a comment!
