I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! You don’t have to be a kid to love ice cream. Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month?! Also, ice cream as we know it here in the United States is totally different from what it started out as centuries ago and in far away countries like China and Persia! As ice cream made its way from those countries to Italy, France, and then colonial America, it went through many changes to become the creamy sweet treat we love today.
