July is National Ice Cream Month. Isn't this the perfect time? What could be better than ice cream to beat the summer heat?
An average of 48 pints of ice cream per person per year is eaten in the U.S., which has the highest consumption of ice cream of any country.
It takes approximately 50 licks to finish a scoop of ice cream.
More ice cream is sold on Sunday than any other day of the week.
