Happy National Ice Cream Day

Happy National Ice Cream Day

Several years a go President Reagan declared that July 18th to be National Ice Cream Day.  Several chains (i.e Starbucks, Mayfield's) offer cents-off coupons.  Baskin-Robbins is retiring five flavors this year to make room for some new flavors.  I can't believe that one flavor they are retiring is French Vanilla!!  That is ridiculous -- it has been around since 1945 and was one of the first flavors launched by Irv Robbins and Burt Baskin.  Oh well, we'll have to wait and see what they come up with to replace it.  :-(

Hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy your ice cream!!

Until next time..... Lorie

Why would they retire French Vanilla?!? That's just crazy.

How did I fail to find a legitimate excuse to have ice cream? Oh, woe is me! :)
