National Ice Cream Day’s Sunday Morning Wake Up

For all of you out there with a raging sweet tooth, today is your day! National Ice Cream Day is observed every third Sunday of July in which you are technically allowed to eat copious amounts of sweet semi-frozen deliciousness without judgement from your frenemies or in-laws. This one is for you my friends, now go out there and eat those sweet treats until your heart is content! And if you don’t have plans for this fine Sunday, might I recommend a cross-state journey on an extremely sweet and tasty Kentucky Ice Cream Trail? I on the other hand, neither a lover of sweets or semi-frozen deliciousness, will utilize this time to inform you of any and everything you missed out on yesterday. Now grab your favorite pint of Ben & Jerry’s and listen up!
