Enjoy peach ice cream on a hot summer day

Any day is a good day to enjoy delicious ice cream; however, since July 17 is National Peach Ice Cream Day, let your selection be a cone or bowl of peach ice cream.

Peaches are one of the best flavors of the summer season. People wait for about 48 weeks for the peach harvest to ripen. And, when it does, for a few short weeks, peaches are eaten alone or in many dishes. In celebration of the harvest, the ice cream companies make peach ice cream to use the available fruit. Most major ice cream makers only produce peach ice cream during the summer.

Ice cream is a frozen dessert usually made from dairy products, such as milk and cream and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavors. Most varieties contain sugar, although some are made with other sweeteners. In some cases, artificial flavorings and different colors are used in addition to, or instead of, the natural ingredients.

There are many flavors of ice cream. They could be one solid flavor or two or more flavors mixed together. Flavors are fruits of various kinds. Ice cream could contain nuts, chips of cookies, or other ingredients. Some people tend to stick to the basic three flavors of ice cream: vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. With do many different kinds of ice cream on the market, there is no need to stick to the same kind. People do have their favorites, but they miss out on some delicious flavors by not experimenting.

There are other national ice cream days during the year. However, enjoy peach ice cream today. It could be a peach ice cream cone, a bowl of peach ice cream, a peach ice cream soda, or a peach sundae. Which choice you make will not be a mistake. Rather, it will be a peachy one.
