HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Sunday marks “National Ice Cream Day” and is a “holiday” that many of us celebrate on a regular basis!

Did you know that President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month?

He also designated the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day.

According to the International Dairy Foods Association: “He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by a full 90 percent of the nation’s population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with ‘appropriate ceremonies and activities'”.
