HOUSTON – Nothing is more satisfying on a warm summer’s day than a big scoop of ice cream.

There’s even a whole month dedicated to the frozen treat.

For all you ice cream lovers, July is National Ice Cream Month!

and Sunday — the peak of the entire month — is National Ice Cream Day!

To celebrate the sweet month, Blue Bell released a new flavor — magic cookie bar.

But it only starts with the sweet cream.

The ice cream is loaded with graham cracker crust pieces, chunks of dark chocolate, pecans, caramel — you get the picture.

National Ice Cream Month originated in 1984 and was even signed into law.

Since roughly 90 percent of Americans eat ice cream, why not?
