Happy National Ice Cream Month!

It’s hard to not think about all things ice cream during these hot summer months which is probably why July is National Ice Cream Month. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day.

Some interesting facts about ice cream:

– Americans eat on average 20 quarts of ice cream a year.
– Vanilla is the most popular flavor.
– The ice cream cone was invented at the 1904 World Fair in St. Louis.

Here are some of our favorite ice cream images and gifs from around Cheezburger to celebrate this amazing food!
