Did you know that in the United States, July is considered to be the busiest month of the summer? The majority of our kids are out of school (and so are teachers), we celebrate a National Holiday, most Americans take vacation,travel and move during the month of July. The temperature outside is rising, you’ve been feeling hot, bothered and need to chill out. Here’s an easy exercise you can try: Close your eyes, inhale deeply and chant: “I scream! You scream! We all scream for Ice Cream!” –it’s practically a mantra! “I Scream Therapy” is “Ice Cream Therapy” the scoop is that July is also “National Ice Cream Month” the month where a chunk of Rocky Road could lead to dip of Neapolitan Nirvana. AUM!!
Once a luxury treat made of mountain snow flavored with fruit juices for a select few of wealthy elite to enjoy, ice cream is now a summer tradition for everyday people. Ice cream cones, ice cream cakes, parfaits, banana splits and sundaes are scooped, spooned, savored — devoured. It’s the coolest, most complimentary confection. Personally I was stunned with the treasure trove of bells,whistles and accessories available to enhance the “I Scream Therapy” experience I mean the toppings alone — who knew that there are four different flavors of Torani Chocolate Sauce! It’s made me feel down right “Ice Cream Social.” As if an entire month of this jubilee isn’t enough, the third Sunday of the month is the actual National Ice Cream Day.
So if you’re looking to cool off this weekend why not arrange an ice cream tasting event with friends, family and neighbors! Each person brings a favorite flavor or topping and for their contribution will be able to sample some new flavor and classics that other participants bring as well. Use plastic dessert cups and taster spoons. Don’t miss out on of an entire month of getting your just desserts.
