4) Try New Flavors

Celebrate with two stops to the ice cream store. Get your favorite flavor on your first stop, and try something new on the second.

Did you know you can make your own ice cream?
It’s really not as hard as you might think. Pick up an ice cream maker if you’re feeling extra elaborate, or simply look up a DIY recipe online.
8) Get Creative With It
Trying new flavors is one thing, but there are also so many different types of ice creams out there that we highly recommend trying out.
There’s vegan ice cream, Mochi ice cream (popular in Japan), ice cream cakes, gelato, and even ice cream wine.
Yes, you read that correctly: ice cream wine! Don’t limit yourself to one type of ice cream this year. Try it all!
9) Get Your Pup Involved

If you love dogs as much as we do, you’ll be happy to know you can get your pup involved with puppy safe ice cream.
You can make your own, or you might be able to find a local vendor in your area who sells some.
Either way, your pets should share in the ice cream celebrations.
10) Keep It Simple
And last, but not least, when all else fails, dig in your freezer, grab that pint of ice cream that’s been calling your name, crack it open, and enjoy.
Really, there’s no wrong way to always celebrate to National Ice Cream Day – even if it is every day.
