National Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day

1 Jul

Celebrate National Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day today, July 1st! Summer is here and what better way to enjoy and cool down than with a creative ice cream flavor? Ice cream has always been a summertime favorite, but with ice creameries like Ben & Jerry’s, Cold Stone Creamery, and Maggie Moo’s, the flavor selection has come a long way from vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. National Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day invites us to indulge in a sweet treat and try something new. Here is a list of our top 10 most creative food and drink inspired ice cream flavors.
