Ice Cream Day, In the News, and Enjoy

Ice Cream Day - While July is National Ice Cream Month, and the 3rd Sunday in July is National Ice Cream Day, today is Ice Cream Day!

Ice cream is nutritious. A little heavy on the sugar and calories, ice cream is otherwise good for you. Its base ingredient is milk, which is loaded with healthy vitamins and minerals.

Charles E. Minches of St. Louis, Missouri is credited with inventing the ice cream cone.

On July 23, 1904 at the World's Fair in St. Louis, he filled a pastry cone with two scoops of ice cream to make the first ice cream cone.

There is some controversy over this claim. Italo Marchiony of New York City filed a patent for the ice cream cone months before the fair opened. And, he was selling lemon ice in cones as early as 1896.
