Sunday is National Ice Cream Day – Who Makes Grand Junction’s Best?
Sunday, July 15, is National Ice Cream Day. Where will you find Grand Junction's best?
According to Holiday Insights, National Ice Cream Day was established in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan. It always falls on the third Sunday of July. He also proclaimed July National Ice Cream Month.
You might be saying, "Hey, I thought December 13 was National Ice Cream Day." Actually, December 13 is simply Ice Cream Day.
Personally, ice cream isn't my thing. Most people, though, seem to love it. On the very rare occasion I find myself having ice cream, it's usually the variety that comes out of a machine at the all-you-can-eat buffet. If not that, then it's usually the variety you find at the grocery store in a pint for $1. You know, the store brand stuff on the bottom shelf.
Since it's safe to say you probably enjoy ice cream, may I ask where you plan to celebrate National Ice Cream Day this Sunday? One of the local creameries? Maybe a Dairy Queen? Perhaps you're one of those stylish people who own an ice cream maker.
For our purposes today, shall we include the local gelato businesses and "do it yourself" yogurt shops? Please cast your vote for your favorite place. If I missed anyone, please write them in, and they'll be added to the list.
