It’s National Ice Cream Day: Here’s the scoop on sweet deals!

Good News

(WRIC/CNN Newsource) — Save room for dessert because Sunday, July 19 is National Ice Cream Day.

The unofficial holiday falls in the middle of a month dedicated to the sweet treat. The origins of ice cream are believed to have taken place thousands of years ago when Persians put snow in a bowl with juice. Later, the Chinese started freezing diary with salt and ice in 697 A.D. Antonio Latin is credited with crafting a more modern-day version of the ice cream. He created a milk-based sorbet in Naples, Italy, in 1642.
