Celebrate National Ice Cream Day with Your Favorite Scoop

Celebrate the sweet holiday.

By on July 19, 2013

Sunday, July 21, is all about summer's favorite dessert: ice cream.

National Ice Cream Day, first recognized by President Ronald Regan in 1984, was created as a day to honor a much-loved treat.  

It should be no surprise how best to celebrate on this special day; the only question is whether to go to the freezer or your favorite ice cream spot for a cool summer treat. If you’re in the mood to make your own fresh ice cream, check out the Locavore app, which can help you find fresh, locally grown fruit to top your ice cream.

Once your ice cream is in hand, continue the fun with games like Ice Cream Maker and Ice Cream Now, which let kids create their favorite concoctions. Another option is Ice Cream Jump, an action game featuring an Ice Cream Scoop as the day's hero!

And if you're stuck deciding which flavor you'd like, check out TIME's list of the funkiest flavors on earth for a little inspiration.

So grab a scoop, take a bite and enjoy National Ice Cream Day!
