Ice Cream Soda Day

When : Always June 20th

Ice Cream Soda Day is a great summer cooler. It's hot. It's muggy. And, an Ice Cream Soda is a flavorful way to cool off.

The flavor of Ice Cream Soda is your choice. Any will do. Chocolate and vanilla are the most popular. But, don't shy away from being creative with the flavor of ice cream or soda.

BTW: If you happened to notice, there are numerous "Ice Cream " days this month. We think you will agree that the ice cream manufacturers have done a splendid great job of promoting their product.

The Origin of Chocolate Ice Cream Day:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. Our money is on the ice cream makers as originators of this day.

    Ice cream manufacturers have to promote their own products with the things they put in it! If you see this on the label: Piperonal -- it is used in the place of vanilla and is also used to treat lice: Diethyl glucol -- same ingredient found in antifreeze and paint removers: Butylraldehyde -- added to nut-flavored ice cream and is one of the ingredients in rubber cement(a possible irritant and , narcotic) . . . There are more. Just read labels and research.

    There are nice recipes for home made ice cream that can actually be quite satisfying!
    Happy Ice Cream Soda Day! emoticon emoticon
