ice cream spoonsSummer is finally here and we are moving right through it. Though June has already passed, which is the month the most ice cream is produced, it’s important that we still take the time to enjoy the nice weather and all the activities that make summer great. That includes indulging in as much ice cream as humanly possible.

But why do we love ice cream so much? Here are a few of the main reasons why people love indulging in a frozen dessert in June, July, November, any Tuesday, and just about any other time.

There are so many options!
You could essentially get ice cream twice a day for the next 10 years and always have new flavor options to try. There are so many flavors on their own and you can easily mix and match all kinds of flavors, ingredients, and anything else you want with your ice cream.

In addition to the hundreds of delicious flavor options you have, there are also plenty of fun ways to actually enjoy the ice cream itself. Whether you’re grabbing ice cream spoons and dessert cups, enjoying a banana split, or crunching on the biggest waffle cone you’ve ever seen, it’s hard not to enjoy ice cream when it comes in so many fun varieties. So grab your colorful ice cream spoons, maybe a napkin or two, and get to work enjoying some frozen desserts right away!

Nothing is better on those scorching hot days
Although there is nothing wrong with eating ice cream in the middle of winter, you just can’t beat having a frozen snack on those scorching hot summer days. Not only will the ice cream cool you down and taste delicious, but you’ll also be able to play a fun game with yourself as you race against time to eat your frozen deliciousness before it drips into a pool of melted sadness.

Brings you back to your childhood

Ice cream also activates wonderful feelings of nostalgia. Even if you’re eating a boring vanilla in a small dish because you’re an “adult,” you’ll be instantly reminded of how much fun you had with chocolate and whip cream all over your clothes and parents' car. As soon as you bite into a plain scoop of vanilla, by the way, you’re going to regret not piling on tasty ingredients, so do yourself a favor and throw on some rainbow sprinkles at least!

Don’t let this summer pass you by without eating at least 100 million pounds of ice cream. Grab your ice cream spoons and enjoy your frozen treats!
