8 Things You Didn’t Know
About National Ice Kream Day!
The 16th of July is a special day – for it is the day that KFC decided our palates need a bit of a sweet ending after a sumptuous meal of their delicious, juicy, perfectly seasoned fried chicken. Here on this day, KFC launches the National Ice Kream Day!
Sit tight, young ‘uns, as we bring you the story of how the colonel–in all his sage-like wisdom–has brought us this glorious day:
First there was chicken
The colonel knew his legendary herbs and spices brought new life to the way people enjoy their fried chicken. But he knew that something was missing. Something that would blossom on the taste buds of KFC patrons after their hearty meal.
The colonel went to his kitchen to brew up more than just chicken flavors
Upon mulling it over in his head, hew knew that he has to offer something cold and creamy. Rather than freezing his gravy and offering it as a dessert on the menu, he wisely thought that freezing the milk and sweetening it would be more prudent to serve to his loyal customers.
The colonel thought of different ice cream flavors
The colonel concocted the creamiest of soft serve ice cream, and the most enthralling swirls of caramel and chocolate fudge! He marveled at his creation, and deemed it worthy to put up on the menu board.
But he needed bolder flavors
The colonel was not satisfied. So off he went and developed new flavors. He then thought that Oreos and marshmallows would make a great combination. He sprinkled some on his soft-serve, and said, “I shall name this the Kreamball.”
