kids: we all scream for ice cream

We All Scream for Ice CreamDid you know ice cream has the presidential seal of approval? It’s true. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated the third Sunday in July as National Ice Cream Day and all of July as Ice Cream Month.

As he stated in his frosty proclamation, Reagan applauded ice cream for its nutritional benefits, including calcium and vitamin D. With countless flavors as well as reduced-fat and low-sugar options, shoppers can find perfect, better-for-you ice cream by using the NuVal® Score found in Super 1 Foods stores. Varieties range from a NuVal score of 12 to 31.

This July, consider “amping up” the nutrition with value-packed ice cream toppers:

  • For fruit flavor: fresh blueberries, strawberries, peaches or bananas (NuVal 100)
  • For a nutty crunch: raw or roasted almonds (NuVal 84), raw pecans (NuVal 71) or roasted pistachio nuts (NuVal 76)
  • For fun fiber: no sugar, whole-grain cereal

Don’t forget to check out our very own Goldenbrook Farms and Brass Dipper ice cream brands.
