National Chocolate Ice Cream Day

When : Always June 7th

National Chocolate Ice Cream Day is a great day to eat America's favorite flavor of ice cream.

National Chocolate Ice Cream Day is a field day for ice cream makers. However, we probably don't need any additional incentive to eat Chocolate Ice Cream. And, with the arrival of warm, summer weather, cooling off with a little (or a lot) of chocolate ice cream is a natural.

Celebrate National Chocolate Ice Cream Day by enjoying it a few times today. It's as simple as that. Just make sure to eat it quickly before it melts in the summer heat.

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.
