July 18 was National Ice Cream Day, but don’t worry if you missed it because the entire month of July is National Ice Cream Month. I mentioned this when I told you about experiences to consume during July. I thought in honor of everyone’s favorite summer treat, I’d point you to some of the ice cream reviews and recipes here on MNN.
