5 Ways to Celebrate National Ice Cream Day!

If you haven’t heard, today is a unique Sundae Funday because it is National Ice Cream Day! Today is the day you should indulge in Americas favorite frozen treat and celebrate the deliciousness of it. So to kick off your celebration, I’ve created a list of 5 delicious, creative and cool places to indulge. Yes, we all are familiar with Baskin Robbins who by the way offers a Buy One Sundae Get One Free  deal from Monday to Wednesday every week until September.  We are also familiar with Carvel who also offers a Buy One Sundae Get One Free deal on Wednesdays. And who doesn’t revert to their childhood days upon hearing the joyous sound of Mr. Softee driving down the street. But hey, let’s try somewhere different today because today is a Sundae Funday national celebration!

1. Sprinkles Ice Cream

Whoever came up with the idea of Sprinkles Cupcakes and Ice Cream was a genius! What better way to enjoy the best of both worlds but to combine a cupcake and ice cream? The combination is absolutely heavenly. May I also tell you that the Cupcake ATM is also genius! You can walk up to the ATM window and choose the cupcake you want, purchase it and out comes a box filled with the sweet wonders of the world. But back to the ice cream, I enjoyed a chocolate marshmallow cupcake filled with red velvet ice cream. It was amazing!

2. Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory

Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory is a nice touch to the Brooklyn Bridge location and a great place to visit if you are in the area. They offer a simple menu but it is absolutely worth it. I had a simple vanilla cone but the combination of the view, the ice cream and spending time with someone special makes the whole experience magical.

3. Big Gay Ice Cream

Yes, this place is called the Big Gay Ice Cream. How funny of a name is that? Well along with the funny name are funny named ice cream specials such as “Cococone,” “American Globs,” and Bea Arthur. Check the website to see what these specials entail. But I indulged in the “Salty Pimp” which is a vanilla cone with dulce de leche and sea salt dipped in chocolate. Besides the sea salt that I personally didn’t love, the cone was great. Either way, you should check this place out. I’m sure it will leave you feeling gay (happy) as ever!

4. Emack & Bolio’s

Now I must be honest, I have not visited Emack & Bolio’s but it is absolutely high on my “To Do” list. The creativity of the flavors paired with the craziness of the cones has to satisfy the sweetest tooth in my mouth. Have you been to Emack & Bolio’s? If you have, tell me everything in the comments box. What should I try? Which location should I go to? I want to know everything.

5. Coldstone

Coldstone as you probably know is the most popular ice cream haven available across the country. It is one of my favorite “Go To” places to make my day better and to satisfy my ice cream craving. I think I’ve had more “Like It” cups with Sweet Cream Ice Cream, Brownies, Caramel and Fudge topped with whipped cream than I could remember. What is your favorite Coldstone combination?
