Ice Cream for Breakfast Day

February 3, 2024

The first Saturday in February, annually.

What is Ice Cream for Breakfast Day?

This annual event celebrated on the first Saturday of February dates back to the mid
1960’s, when, as the lore goes, Florence Rappaport came up with the idea on a snowy
Rochester New York morning to entertain her 6 children.

The tradition spread from state to state and eventually country to country where this
annual event is celebrated as far away as New Zealand, Germany and China.

The ice cream and frozen dessert industry has a massive reach, having a 13 billion
impact on the economy, supporting over 29,000 jobs and generating 1.8 billion dollars in
direct wages according to the International Dairy Foods Association.

We hope you'll celebrate this day with us or with a local ice cream shop near you! Your support of small dairy businesses is appreciated!
