Fun Finds: National Ice Cream Day!

Tomorrow, July 15, is National Ice Cream Day in the United States. There really is only one way to celebrate this national holiday - kick back with a cone (or cup, if you prefer as I do) and enjoy this tasty summer treat! But before the official celebration begins, take a look at these ice cream fun finds and facts. Highlights are below, the full collection can be found on Etsy. And, I won't tell if you sneak an early treat :)

FUN FACT #2 -- About 9 percent of all dairy milk produced in the U.S. goes towards ice cream production (but don't forget about the yummy soy and other non-dairy varieties out there!)

FUN FACT #3 -- The ice cream cone, as we know it today, gained popularity during the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. The legend is that an ice cream vendor ran out of cardboard dishes, so he asked a neighboring waffle vendor, who had low sales due to high temperatures, to create dishes out of his unsold waffles.
