The Origins of Peach Ice Cream Day: A Juicy Tale

Now, you might be wondering how this holiday came to be. Well, the truth is, we don’t really know. It’s one of those unofficial food holidays that seem to have appeared out of nowhere.
But let’s pretend we do know how it came to be.
Legend has it that Peach Ice Cream Day was invented by a group of bored chefs who were tired of making the same old flavors of ice cream. They were sitting around one summer day, munching on juicy peaches, and suddenly had a stroke of inspiration. What if they combined the two? And so, Peach Ice Cream Day was born!
Others claim that it was invented by an ice cream company as a marketing ploy. But that’s kind of a downer story.
Peach Ice Cream Day falls on July 17th every year, right in the middle of summer when peaches are at their juiciest and most delicious.
