Many foods, like doughnuts, have a day dedicated to them. But ice cream is in a league of its own. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan deemed July National Ice Cream Month, with the third Sunday of the month being National I️ce Cream Day. So if you haven’t been celebrating, this Sunday you have no excuse, because there’s going to be deals on deals. Here are some of the best National Ice Cream Day deals to get your ice cream on the cheap (or for free) on Sunday.
