It’s National Creamsicle Day

It’s not really summer if you haven’t had a Creamsicle yet!  The drippy, dreamy tang of orange and frozen sweet cream is literally made for hot summer days.  Any kid will tell you that there is nothing better after a day of playing hard in the sweltering sun.

National Creamsicle Day pays homage to this delicious dessert on a stick and reminds us to embrace our inner children and get our Creamsicles before summer days fade to fall!
