 Milky Way Ice Cream Bars

Did you know that today, Sunday July 21st is National Ice Cream Day? It sure is, in fact July is National Ice Cream month – did you celebrate yet? We began our ice cream celebrations a little early with some fantastic, sweet treats from Mars.

Mars makes some great-tasting ice cream, and if you are a candy bar fan, you will surely love the Snickers ice cream, Twix ice cream bars and the favorite at our house the Milky Way ice cream bars.

I always try to have a stock of ice cream in the fridge, because once the ice cream truck comes around (which it does quite frequently in our neighborhood), I can pull out ice cream for all my kids (and their friends) for the same price as one ice cream from the ice cream truck.

Having great-tasting ice cream bars such as the Milky Way bars, the Snickers bars and the Twix ice cream bars also ensures that the neighborhood kids come to our backyard to play, which means my kids won’t be begging to go somewhere else. I like to keep them close and supervised, and that I do best in our own backyard.

Today is my youngest son’s fourth birthday, and he sure am excited about sharing the day with ice cream? Of course we had to have ice cream with the birthday cake as well, and once again ice cream had a way of getting everyone in the neighborhood together.
