Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month, recognizing ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that 90 percent of our population enjoys. In his declaration, President Reagan called for all citizens of the United States to observe these events with "appropriate ceremonies and activities."

July may be coming to an end, but you still have time to take a walk to the local ice cream shop, go for a bike ride and grab a dish at the end of the ride or take a long lunch break. Here at Sip & Savor, we want to remind you to grab a beverage to go with your ice cream. It’s important to stay hydrated, especially in these warm summer months. Fortunately for you, our member companies offer a wide array of beverages in a range of portion sizes and calorie counts. So explore your choices, find the portion size and calorie count that’s right for you, and enjoy!
