The Complete History Of National Ice Cream Day

By: My/Mochi Ice Cream

Thousands of years ago, people in the Persian Empire put snow in a bowl, poured concentrated grape juice over it, and ate it as a treat. In Ancient China, under the Tang Dynasty around 697 AD, the people took to freezing dairy with salt and ice. Fast-forward to 1642 in Naples, Italy, Antonio Latini and creates a milk-based sorbet. In the United States, the Quaker colonists earn the nod for bringing their ice recipes over with them. They opened the first ice cream shops, including shops in New York and other cities during the Colonial Era.

LONG STORY SHORT. People love ice cream.

Jump to 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

SO BY GOLLY (or however you spell that) THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE’LL DO!

George Washington NOT Ronald Reagan
