National Ice Cream Day Celebrated in Morgantown

MORGANTOWN -

Eating ice cream is always a good idea, but this Sunday everyone had an extra excuse because it was National Ice Cream Day.

But at Mountaineer Country Ice Cream most of the patrons were completely unaware of the fun holiday.

"No, you surprised me. I didn't know today was National Ice Cream Day," said customer Jack McCune.

But that makes sense because at Mountaineer Country Ice Cream, every day is National Ice Cream Day.

"It's really the usual crowd. Some people come in because it's Ice Cream Day but we're always busy on Sunday," said Teresa Walsh, owner.

The ice cream shop sets itself apart by specializing in what Walsh calls 'real ice cream.'

"Real ice cream has to have ten percent butter fat in it or more and if it's less than that, it's not real ice cream," she said. "Ours has the real fat in it."

That real fat plus all the other ingredients make it delicious, customers come from all over just to get a taste.

"We love the ice cream, Hershey's ice cream is the best," McCune said.

If you missed the memo and didn't get a chance to grab a scoop on National Ice Cream Day, no worries, in 1984 President Ronald Reagan declared July as National Ice Cream Month.
