Celebrate Ice Cream Day


The real scoop on a frozen vanilla treat


Commemorate the "coolest" holiday using flavors from Nielsen-Massey Vanillas



Whether it's a scoop, a sandwich, a shake or on a stick, ice cream is the perfect way to chill out when the thermometer is climbing. Americans love this frozen treat! In fact, 90 percent of the US population consumes ice cream and each American eats over 23 quarts of frozen dairy product every year. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan declared July as National Ice Cream Month. He also established National Ice Cream Day as the third Sunday in the month, this year on July 17.

Celebrate National Ice Cream Day this summer with the most popular ice cream flavor - vanilla. Madagascar grows 60 percent of the world's vanilla beans that are used for ice cream giving it a rich taste and texture. So, churn out the creamiest, vanilla dairy delight using premier vanilla extracts and pure flavors from Nielsen-Massey Vanillas. 
 
 "Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste contains real vanilla seed and is a convenient way to add delicious vanilla flavor and eye appeal at the same time," says Craig Nielsen, chief executive officer of Nielsen-Massey. "It is an ideal ingredient in a recipe where the vanilla taste is to be showcased."
