July is National Ice Cream Month therefore many food related holidays celebrated in July are devoted to various types of ice cream. And today, July 23 is National Vanilla Ice Cream Day.
It celebrates the basic and most popular ice cream flavor. Vanilla is so frequently used to flavor ice cream in Europe and North America that many people consider it to be the default ice cream flavor. The type of vanilla used as the ice cream flavoring may vary by location.
As vanilla is considered to be the plain ice cream flavor, vanilla ice cream is often used as the principal ingredient of ice cream desserts and cold coffee beverages.
To celebrate National Vanilla Ice Cream, indulge yourself with several scoops of vanilla ice cream. You can top it with flavored syrup or sweet sauce, whipped cream, fruits, or sprinkles but it will taste delicious even without any toppings.
