Always A Summertime Favorite (NAPSA) - America loves ice cream. We lead the world in ice cream consumption, with each American averaging 23.2 quarts of ice cream and other frozen treats annually.
Today, 98 percent of all U.S. households purchase ice cream.
June and July each year mark the annual Summer Favorites Ice Cream & Novelties Promotion, sponsored by the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA). It's a great time to visit your grocery store, where you will find special promotions and prices on your favorite summer treats.
When shopping for ice cream and novelties, NFRA suggests that you make the ice cream aisle your last stop, and when your groceries are packed, request a freezer bag or additional brown paper bag to insulate your ice cream for the ride home. At home, store ice cream in the main part of the freezer, not on the door, where it is subject to more fluctuating temperatures.
A favorite ice cream treat to enjoy: the old-fashioned Root Beer Float.
Put two scoops of ice cream in a tall fountain glass and pour in enough cold root beer to cover. Add two more scoops and top again with root beer. Serve with a spoon and straw.
