National Coffee Ice Cream Day
National Coffee Ice Cream Day is a day that blends two great foods into one: ice cream and coffee! It is believed coffee ice cream made its debut in the mid 19th century, but it was not until 1919 that a recipe for "egg coffee", consisting of cream, crushed ice, and coffee syrup, first appeared. Today's modern coffee ice cream is made by dissolving fine coffee grains in a hot ice cream base.
How to Observe
Celebrate the day by eating coffee ice cream! There are many brands of coffee ice cream that could be tried, but it might be fun to try to make your own.
