Vanilla ice cream lovers, today is your day!
The cold melting Ice cream gets all of us nostalgic about our childhood. Even as a grown-up, Ice cream is an ultimate comfort food. It is usually made from dairy products, such as milk and cream, and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavours. One such flavor is Vanilla.
National Vanilla Ice Cream Day is observed annually on July 23rd. It is believed that Thomas Jefferson discovered the vanilla flavour in France and then introduced it to the United States. Jefferson produced a handwritten copy of a vanilla ice cream recipe in the 1780?s, which is now housed at the Library of Congress.
Vanilla Ice Cream Day is also sometimes known as National Vanilla Ice Cream Day in the US.
Many countries have acknowledged this delicious food and issued stamps of it. The Postal Service of many countries all over the world celebrate Ice Cream on stamp!
