This past Sunday we enjoyed one of the sweetest holidays this summer, National Ice Cream Day!  This holiday is celebrated all month long, so join in the fun.  Satisfy your cravings for the icy treat this month with the deals that follow. If I hear of others, I’ll add them to the list. If you know of any, leave a comment!

The majority of ice cream manufacturers have been in business for more than 50 years and many of them are family owned. So when you’re eating ice cream, you’re helping out a small biz. (That’s one way to justify it!)
