We’ve certainly had some hot days recently. And looking ahead at the weather forecast, it doesn’t appear to be cooling down anytime soon. How do we beat this heat? Well personally, I indulge in a sweet treat from my local ice cream shop. Because nothing hits the spot quite like a scoop of vanilla on a hot day.
If the heat doesn’t drive you to dessert like in my case, perhaps National Ice Cream Day will. On Sunday, July 15, ice cream lovers across the country will enjoy a cone, cup or bowl of their favorite flavor. Some will scoop their own at home, others will visit a local ice cream store and order specially-made sundaes or shakes. And here in Macomb County, we’ve got plenty of independently owned and operated shops that you can try.
MMYH encourages you to celebrate National Ice Cream Day by supporting one of these hometown establishments. We promise you won’t be disappointed.
