While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Hold onto your spoons, things are about to get rocky! June 2 is National Rocky Road Ice Cream Day.
Glory, glory, hallelujah to this entire day filled with scoop after scoop of chocolate (or the rogue vanilla) ice cream studded with chopped nuts and marshmallows. This favorite flavor was created in 1929 by William Dreyer of Dreyer’s Ice Cream.
He took his wife’s sewing scissors to some walnuts and marshmallows and added them to chocolate ice cream as a way of competing with other ice cream companies and their similar chocolate-and-candy ice cream symphonies.
