Happy National Ice Cream Month! Ice Cream is a favorite refreshing sweet treat that has been helping us stay cool while satisfying our taste buds since it’s creation in China during 617-97AD! A sweet treat that dates back that far in history, it’s no wonder that what was once a rare treat before modern refrigeration, had become a mainstay in American cuisine, and around the globe, by the 19th century!
