Here's a quick, delicious reminder for you: July is National Ice Cream Month. But July doesn't have to be dedicated only to ice cream when dairy-free sorbetto and artisanal gelato is available to satisfy your sweet cravings and celebrate the delectable theme of the month accordingly.

 

A little history:  In 1984, United States President Ronald Regan declared July National Ice Cream Month, recognizing the sweet, frozen dairy treat as “a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by a full 90 percent of the nation’s population.” Additionally, the President called for the people of America to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

 

What's more appropriate than gelato? And since there is no shortage of gelato or sorbetto flavorings, pay a visit to your favorite gelateria and indulge in your most preferred flavor...or flavors! Why not? It's National Ice Cream month!
