Jul23 Fun Holiday – Vanilla Ice Cream Day

July 23 is Vanilla Ice Cream Day. Celebrate this unofficial holiday of unknown origins by eating as much vanilla ice cream as you want without any guilt.

Vanilla ice cream is the most popular flavor of ice cream around the world


Made by freezing a custard of cream or milk, sugar, eggs, and vanilla beans or flavoring, vanilla ice cream is the most popular flavor of ice cream in the United States and Canada according to some surveys.

Recognizable Flavor

Vanilla is a flavoring that comes from the pods of the fruit of the vanilla orchid. A native plant of Mexico, vanilla was unknown to the world outside Central America until the late 1600s. Today, it is one of the world's most recognized flavors. The expression, plain vanilla, is used to refer to something that is commonplace and does not have any special or distinguishing characteristics.

Vanilla Ice Cream Day is also sometimes known as National Vanilla Ice Cream Day in the US.

How to Celebrate?

  • Do we need to say anything else other than it's Vanilla Ice Cream Day! Eat as much ice cream as you can possibly eat.
  • Having pancakes for breakfast? Add a dollop of vanilla ice cream with it. Brownies for dinner? Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Smoothies for an after workout snack? Add a few scoops of vanilla ice cream. Well, you get our point.

Did You Know…

…that vanilla is thought to be the world's second most expensive spice? The most expensive spice in the world is saffron.
