National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day – Saturday – Feb 6, 2010

ice cream for breakfast - national ice cream for breakfast day

Did you know that the first Saturday of February is national ice cream for breakfast day? I didn’t, until my friend and former consulting client Greg Berry pointed it out.

Greg owns the award winning Here’s Your Scoop in Lee’s Summit, MO.  A year after starting his ice cream store, Greg’s strawberry ice cream was awarded a “Blue Ribbon” at the 2009  NICRA annual convention. Greg’s strawberry scored 34 out of a possible 35. A feat that most veteran ice cream makers have never achieved.

So, what does Greg’s Here’s Your Scoop have on tap for National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, on February 6. 2010?

Hear it straight from Greg himself:


We will have Bacon Ice Cream, Maple Ice Cream and all of the regular stuff. We will also have Belgian Waffle Sundaes. We are going to have several give-aways! Ice cream flavored lip balm, ice cream flavored bath bubbles and other ice cream related toys, etc. for kids.

We will also be wearing our PJ’s at the store from 8:00 to 1:00 and will have several contests for customers that wear their pajamas to the store — the warmest, fuzziest, funniest, best slippers, best family (all in pj’s….mom – dad and the kids), and more!

Also, the first 100 customers who come to the store in their PJ’s will get a HYS logo coffee cup while they last!

This should be a really fun day (morning)…..see you there in your pj’s!!

I hope most of you were able to watch Wednesday’s webcast where Steve Thompson of Emery Thompson batch freezers made ice cream, gelato and Italian Ice.

I was hoping to get a little feedback. In general, I’m looking for honest comments on what you liked and maybe suggestions on how we can improve. Was there anything  you were expecting to see that was not covered?

The next live webcast on making your own ice cream, gelato and Italian Ice is on February 17, 2009.  It starts at 9am sharp, live from the Emery Thompson factory. Click below to sign up.
