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.

Organic chocolate ice cream test– Last summer, I taste-tested several organic chocolate ice creams and held them up against Breyers chocolate. Find out which brand came closest.

Chill out with PJ Madison’s ice cream - The organic ice cream provides a gelato-style ice cream, completely free of bovine growth hormone and pesticide residues.

Ben & Jerry’s fair trade choc mac – Ben & Jerry make a responsible chocolate macadamia nut ice cream. (Note: Since writing this post, I’ve bought this ice cream and it’s become a favorite of my 10-year-old.)
