Do we need any specific day to enjoy ice creams? No. Because ice cream is the most popular dessert in the world. It all started in 1984 when American President Ronald Reagan proclaimed July as National Ice Cream Month, and established 15 July as the National Ice Cream Day.
Reagan also proclaimed July as National Ice Cream month, describing ice cream as ‘‘a nutritious and wholesome food enjoyed by over ninety percent of the people in the United States.’’ His efforts not only satisfied the country’s taste buds but also benefited the nation’s dairy industry by providing a unique marketing opportunity that’s still popular to this day. Ice cream is a beloved treat enjoyed by many since 1660 when it was made available to the public. Whether in a dish or cone, today is the perfect day to celebrate this amazing invention that was created long ago.
It is also said that the Arabs were the first known people to know how to make ice. Italians and French learned of their techniques and were fascinated by using both ice and salt to freeze mixtures and keep them cold. Later on ice houses were being made as kind of their version of a refrigerator.
 It is said that ice cream-like food was first consumed in China sometime between 618-97 AD. The first dish was made from flour, buffalo milk, and camphor, an organic compound commonly used in lotion. It’s also been noted that Alexander the Great adored ice and snow flavored with nectar and honey.
Before the fridges were in existence, the ice creams were made in a bucket full of ice and salt in which the container having all the ingredients of ice cream was held and the mixture in it continually stirred till it was completely frozen. Later as the refrigerator arrived, it became very easy to just mix up the ingredients and put them in the freezer section till it became ice cream.
The effect of ice cream on society is so great, that the brain of an ice cream lover has been likened to that of an addict. When the brain wants ice cream, it reacts like a passionate fanatic. Ice cream is a nutritious and wholesome food, enjoyed by over 90% of the people in the United States. The ice cream attracts all men and women of all ages and all of them like it. But several people have a different taste and love for an ingredient in their ice cream. As our generation today becomes more health conscious, ice cream has been one of the hot picks for criticisms due to its high calorie and sugar contents. This poses so many issues for adults, especially those who belong to the diabetic group.
The vanilla flavor is the most popular ingredient after the chocolate in the world. Due to the popularity of vanilla, its ice creams are highly popular. Today, Vanilla, chocolate and strawberry still remain the most popular flavours in spite of numerous flavours like guava, peach, coconut, mango and many others being introduced regularly.Let us enjoy National Ice Cream Day by sharing some with your family and friends.
