It’s National Ice Cream Day! Here’s the Scoop on Where to Get It by Harriet BaskasUnbeknownst to some, the third Sunday of July is National Ice Cream Day — a holiday declared by President Ronald Reagan back in 1984 to promote the economic well-being of the U.S. dairy industry.
It was a nod to the fact that the frozen treat is produced using nearly ten percent of U.S. dairy farmers’ milk supply.Reagan’s proclamation also called on the people of the United States to do their duty and pay tribute to ice-cream with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” So who are we to argue?
We all scream for ice cream.
Here are some of the events and activities for people — and pets — taking place this year on Sunday.At Carvel Ice Cream franchisees around the country, customers who buy one cup or cone (of any size) will get one free on National Ice Cream Day. The soft-serve ice-cream company also has a promotion underway for buy one, get one free sundaes each Wednesday.
My friends at C. Nelson build gelato cabinets and mobile scoop carts.
Ever since when the Italians introduced Gelato to the US market it has been a hit in most major cities across the USA. Gelato has not hit the rural market as well. Finally from C. Nelson there is a ice cream dipping cabinet that will serve up both types of cool creamy treats in one dipping cabinet. This split style cabinet is great for those operators who want to introduce Gelato to their customers but do not want to invest in a full blown Gelato cabinet. They are very costly and hard to work with.
C. Nelson introduces the split Gelato & Ice Cream dipping cabinet, 8dip-hv serving Gelato & Ice Cream. The 8dip-hv is setup to display 6, 4-liter pans, and 4 3-gallon ice cream tubs. Now that is a great bargain for an operator who wants to sell both quality gelato and ice creams.
The C. Nelson 8 dip-hv cabinet is easy to operate and maintain and his very simple to keep clean. The inside of the cabinet is constructed with easy to clean stainless-steel side walls, digital temp control, led lighting, and the always seamed and wielded corners. The C. Nelson also features a steel frame below the freezer box keeping it structurally solid for years of maintenance free operation. Call C. Nelson today for a quote.
