Did you know:

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of July National Ice Cream Day?

Well, he did. And if you like ice cream, you are going to love today’s giveaway.

The folks at Fresh & Easy are celebrating Ice Cream Month with a wide variety of ice cream flavors.  A few days ago they asked me if I would like to try some and I immediately said, “yes,” for three reasons:

Reason 1- we love ice cream;

Reason 2- we have tried the Vanilla and the Mint Chocolate Chip already and we really love them;

Reason 3- I had a birthday party this month and ice cream was the perfect choice, specially considering National Ice Cream Month and all.

So my husband and I went to Fresh & Easy to buy some. Believe me when I say, it was hard choosing! My husband wanted one of each flavor! We finally decided on our all time favorite: Mint Chocolate Chip, then added a tropical flavor, Pineapple Coconut, and then the nostalgic Orange Cream, and of course we couldn’t resist getting Cherry Chocolate Chunk and Neapolitan for the kids.  Finally we added a couple of sorbets, Lemon and Pomegranate, for those who can’t have milk.

The Ice Cream  was a hit!

We really enjoy Fresh & Easy Ice Cream because it is delicious and it’s made with natural flavors, no artificial colors, no high-fructose corn syrup, and milk from cows not treated with growth hormones.  I really appreciate the no artificial colors part, you can see, for example, Mint Chocolate Chip is not green, it is creamy white with brown chunks of chocolate.  You can see, too, the Cherry Chocolate Chunk in the picture at the top, it’s made with beet juice for coloring and the strawberry part of the Neapolitan is a very pale, almost white pink.

Would you like to try some?
