I’m Screaming for All The National Ice Cream Day Deals

Fun fact: Ronald Reagan blessed us by recognizing July as National Ice Cream Month and commemorating the third Sunday in the month to be National Ice Cream Day. Thank you, Ronald, we appreciate you. Do you know what this means? Copious amounts of sugar and smiles, yay! And you don’t have to feel bad about it because it is literally a legal holiday. Not celebrating Ice Cream Day would be like not celebrating any incredibly important holiday. So I’m telling you that it is required to at least have some sort of frozen treat on July 21. Making it impossible for you to avoid ice cream, many companies use this day to spoil us with free or discounted treats making it a win-win for all. Here are some of the amazing deals you can score on this National Ice Cream Day:
