What are the best discounts and freebies for National Ice Cream Day this Sunday 17 July?
The annual celebration of the nation’s favourite frozen snack is nearly here and brands are offering great deals for National Ice Cream Day 2022.
Every year the third Sunday in July is officially designated as National Ice Cream Day, an annual celebration of the country’s favourite frozen treat. Americans are truly world leaders in the field of ice cream consumption, getting through an average of 23 gallons per person every year.
The celebration dates back to 1984 when President Reagan decreed that July should be National Ice Cream month. He described the frozen delight as ‘’a nutritious and wholesome food enjoyed by over ninety percent of the people in the United States.’’
Over time this has morphed into National Ice Cream Day, which this year will be Sunday, 17 July. To mark the occasion many places will be offering free or discounted ice cream all day; here’s some of the best deals…
