Sweetest Month to Cool Your Moptop

July is National Ice Cream Month, and the third Sunday of July is National Ice Cream Day!

Think of it as one big sundae with a cherry on top, thanks to President Ronald Reagan.

What’s the scoop?

More ice cream is consumed per person in the United States than in any other country.

Did you know:

  • The U.S. ice cream industry generated total revenues of $10 billion in 2010, with take-home sales representing the largest chunk, $6.8 billion. (Source: MarketLine, an Informa business)
  • About 9 percent of all the milk produced by U.S. dairy farmers is used to produce ice cream.
