President Reagan made it official that we celebrate the frozen tasty treat back in 1984, and also called for the third Sunday in July to be observed as National Ice Cream Day. Considering that 90% of the population in the U.S. claim they indulge in a scoop or two, it was an easy call.
Like many other foods, the origins of ice cream can be traced back to China, 4th century B.C. to be exact, although American colonists were the first to coin the term ice cream when the first ice cream parlor opened in 1776.
