Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: How To Celebrate National Ice Cream Month Locally

*It's also National Ice Cream Day on Sunday July 16th!

July 11, 2017

There's no wrong way to celebrate National Ice Cream Month. Well, unless you don't consume any ice cream in July, then that's TRULY wrong... Hell, I've already had Moose Tracks and Peanut Butter Cookie Dough ice cream in the last week! If you're in the greater Seattle area, there are local masters of the craft you should DEFINITELY check out this month. If you're going to celebrate National Ice Cream Month, this is certainly the how-to you're after:


1. Lopez Island Creamery began on the island more than 20 years ago, but now they make their delicious ice cream in Anacortes. They carry more than 30 ice creams, plus 6 sorbets and 5 seasonal flavors! You can find the nearest place to snag Lopez Island Creamery ice cream with this handy area map

2. Full Tilt Ice Cream has 4 locations in the Seattle area - White Center, Columbia City, U-District and Ballard - so next time you're in the city, make sure you find a spot to indulge! Not only do they offer 14 delightful flavors, they also have 6 vegan offerings. If you're not in the Seattle area or planninig a visit anytime soon, you can scope out retail locations near you where Full Tilt is fully stocked!

3. Ice Cream Social in Tacoma uses local milk from local cows and ingredients sourced from local companies to create delicious, natural ice cream! You'll find 10 everday flavors plus another 16 rotating offerings. Visit their shop in Tacoma or find their ice cream at a number of local retailers and restaurants


Happy National Ice Cream Month, Rockaholics! And be CERTAIN you celebrate National Ice Cream DAY this Sunday July 16th. Use #NationalIceCreamMonth and #NationalIceCreamDay when you do.
