I’ve decided to honour National Day’s Not Saints days or but all the odd, weird, funny National Days we hear about on the web.
So today is #NationalDay of Soft Ice Cream.
National Soft Ice Cream Day
In 1934 on Memorial Day weekend, Tom Carvel had a flat tire on his ice cream truck in Hartsdale, New York. After pulling into a parking lot, he began selling the softened ice cream to vacationers driving by. He was amazed to see that people loved the soft ice cream, he concluded that a fixed location selling the new found dessert was potentially a good business idea. In 1936, Carvel opened his first store on the original broken down truck site, selling his secret formula soft serve ice cream dispensed from his patented super low temperature ice cream machines.
We are all big lovers of ice cream so will definately celebrating today! Will you? Let us know how you enjoy your ice cream.
