National Ice Cream Soda Day celebrates the simple combination of flavored soda water with a scoop (or several) of ice cream. There are many variations of this popular treat – including the Root Beer Float (aka Black Cow). Use any combination of soda and ice cream that fits your taste.

When and who invented the ice cream soda is hard to nail down. Several people are believed to have created similar varieties about the same time, around the late 1800’s.

National Ice Cream Soda Day is recognized annually on June 20th.
