National Ice Cream Day 18th July

Here’s a fun fact for you this Ice Cream Day! Sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia is the scientific term for the brain freeze you experience after eating ice cream.

Though this holiday began in the US, ice cream is a popular treat here in Waltham Cross. Unilever, the firm behind Walls and Carte D’Or, estimates that 12 ice creams are sold every second on average during a UK summer.

This popular dessert is easy to make at home, buy at Sainsbury’s, or you can even buy an ice cream maker from Argos to do the hard work for you. Currently, their American Originals 0.6L Ice Cream Maker is £22!

Our top ideas for summertime ice cream toppings are:

  • Fudge
  • Chocolate sauce
  • Chopped banana
  • Blueberries
  • Sprinkles

But that’s only an idea. Experiment yourself. You never know, you might find a new flavour combo that rivals Ben and Jerry’s!
