Happy National Ice Cream Day!

 

There's no better way to beat the summer heat (other than a swimming pool) than a bowl of ice cream. National Ice Cream Day always falls on the third Sunday in July, today is significant because the U.S. Women's Soccer Team is in a tense battle vs. Japan for a World Cup Title which they haven't won in 12 years.

I suggest you crank up the air, purchase some Edy's Vanilla Sandwich Ice Cream and tune in to ESPN to watch Abby Wambach, Hope Solo, Megan Rapinoe, and 22-year-old Alex Morgan who just scored against Japan's fastest player. The U.S. leads 1-0--Go USA!

In honor of National Ice Cream Month, Here are a few fun facts about America's favorite frozen treat:

•Each American consumes a yearly average of 23.2 quarts of ice cream, ice milk, sherbet, ices and other commercially-produced frozen dairy products.

•More ice cream is sold on Sunday than any other day of the week.

•Ice cream and related frozen desserts are consumed by more than 90 percent of households in the United States.

•Ice cream consumption is highest during July and August.
