National Chocolate Ice Cream Day!

First of all, stop trying to lick the screen. I know it looks good AND you skipped breakfast AND you're craving chocolate, but seriously, have a little restraint. Second, Happy National Chocolate Ice Cream Day!!!

It's not hard to believe that Chocolate Ice Cream gets its own day of recognition. It's just that delicious. The perfect summer treat, day or night. Plus chocolate is good for you...I swear! Dark chocolate (in moderation) can lower your blood pressure and cholesterol. So skip the vanilla and go straight for the good stuff - doctor's orders.

Here are some fun facts to get you in the mood to celebrate:
  • It takes about 50 licks to lick away one scoop of ice cream!
  • Of all the days of the week, most ice cream is bought on Sunday!
  • Kids aged 2-12 and adults over 45 eat the most ice cream!
  • More men (13%) admit to licking their ice cream bowl clean than women (8%)!
  • Vanilla, chocolate, butter pecan, strawberry, and mint chocolate chip are the most popular ice cream flavors!
  • Chocolate syrup is the most popular ice cream topping!
  • 5% of ice cream eaters share their ice cream with their pet!
So now that you know, go celebrate by treating yourself to a dish of chocolatey goodness, or my personal favorite a double-scoop waffle cone. But, please remember to wipe your drool off the keyboard before you leave.
