June 2 - National Rocky Road Ice Cream Day

June 2 is National Rocky Road Day!

Rocky Road ice cream is a delicious treat with an interesting culinary heritage. In 1929, after the stock market crash, Dreyer Ice Cream's founder, William Dreyer, calmed his Black Thursday nerves by creating the Original Rocky Road. Mixing chunky almonds, mini marshmallows and delicious milk chocolate ice cream, he created a flavor of ice cream that would make people smile during the tough economic times of the Great Depression. It instantly became an American favorite and its fame soon spread to the rest of the world.

Not to be confused with THIS Rocky!!!

Go and get yourself a scoop!!
