One of the more interesting media releases to capture my attention lately was from Cold Stone Creamery and began by telling me July 15 was National Ice Cream Day. What now!?
National Ice Cream Day History
The story is kind of interesting. Back in 1984, US President Ronald Reagan declared July as National Ice Cream Month, as well as the third Sunday in July as National Ice Cream Day. While that’s pretty cool I was also quite certain Reagan is American, thus making this a national day for Americans to celebrate. Nooooo! What about Canadians!?
I asked around on Twitter and we decided Canadians could have this day too. I guess Cold Stone Creamery is on the up-trend of that day and I like it! They even suggested Province-specific Signature Creations to celebrate.
I’ve only been to Cold Stone Creamery once before, and it was nearly a year ago. It was a good experience, but for whatever reason I haven’t made my way back there. Until this week that is. After making sure the special provincial creations would be available all summer I waited till the heat got the best of me and went on over to give the B.C. Rocky Mountain Landslide a try.
B.C. Rocky Mountain Landslide Ice Cream Ingredients
I ordered my very own “Love It” B.C. Rocky Mountain Landslide ice cream creation. And let me say, it was well worth the wait! Amazing and delicious.
My original plan to take the treat to go but my treat was enormous and potentially messy. Also, it was super hot outside. Staying inside to eat my ice cream afforded me 10 wonderful minutes all to myself while I celebrated the best National Ice Cream Day I’ve ever had.
Next National Ice Cream Day I might try some other provincial creations. I find the Newfoundland “Cod”ton Candy Dandy and the Quebec La Poutine Gourmand especially intriguing.
