HAPPY NATIONAL ICE CREAM MONTH

Today is “Creative Ice-Cream Flavor Day” so with the hot summer now officially in full swing, it’s the perfect time to check out all the creative flavors of ice cream that are available to us. I love ice cream and especially trying new types of ice cream that are unique and just different. Today makes me think of an ice cream shop in Ireland in my home town called “Kenmare Ice Cream”  that serves the most quirky ice cream flavors and when I asked her how she even thinks of putting these flavors into ice cream, she said it’s her customers who give her the ideas. She has everything from plain vanilla to  chili chocolate in her variety of flavors. I always get the lemon meringue  ice cream when I am there which as you can imagine is so good.  She puts actual lemon meringue pieces rather than  just flavoring into the ice cream which gives it the amazing flavor and it really tastes awesome.

I think since arriving in Boston, the most interesting ice cream combination I have seen has to be Emack and Bolio’s ice cream pizza. The “pizza” is made with a brownie crust, vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, and marshmallow. It not only looks amazing but it tastes incredible.

Here in the United States, there are so many creative flavors to choose from but why not today make up your own?

So this weekend, we encourage you  to celebrate “Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day” by mixing two or more of your favorite flavors, candies or even go that step further and mix sweet and savory which will always be interesting. Also it is important to note you may enjoy ice- cream all month long as July is also “National Ice-Cream Month” so you could try a different flavor each and every day.

Enjoy!
