Sunday 7/15 is National Ice Cream Day!

 Thanks to President Reagan in 1984!! Here are some cool sweet ideas for the big day in ATX!

Archie will bark for it! 2 Paws up for Sunday 7/15! It's National Ice Cream Day! Here are some sweet places to check out for some goodies and sweet cool surprises:

Amy's Ice Creams has been a local institution since the '80s. Amy's features seven standard flavors, a variety of mix-in options, and dozens of rotating flavors including Cop Stop (coffee ice cream with donuts) and the Tito's-infused The Dude. On National Ice Cream Day, Amy's will give a free scoop of ice cream to any child 12 and under who recites the Pledge of Allegiance.

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all!"

Coolhaus will debut quite a few new flavors on Sunday. Hints on two flavors - one is Momofuku Milk Bar-inspired and the other is a popular soul food breakfast combo. HOPE Farmer's Market and at a food trailer park on 6th and Waller

The Ice Cream Social, located at a food trailer park on 415 Jessie Street, is a newcomer offering ice cream flavors such as Matcha Green Tea with Orange Blossom and Roasted Strawberry Cheesecake. Additionally, they have an impressive popsicle selection with flavors such as Thai Iced Tea and Mojito.

Lick Honest Ice Creams -2032 S. Lamar- was runner-up in this year's Austin Chronicle Restaurant Poll for best ice cream....Flavors such as Honeyed Peaches with Rosemary, Mexican Marigold with Blueberry Swirl, and Roasted Beets and Fresh Mint.
