National Ice Cream Day has been celebrated since its inaugural year of 1984. Always celebrated on the third Sunday in July, National Ice Cream Day will take place this year on Sunday, July 17, giving Canadians no better opportunity to treat themselves to a bowl, cone, sandwich, sundae or cake of cold, delicious goodness!

Well, Marble Slab Creamery knows just what has Canadians licking their dishes. Offering more than a whopping 50 unique, hand-crafted ice cream flavours -- including everything from classics such as double dark chocolate, to exotic flavours like green tea and red velvet -- Canadians still flock to Marble Slab's classic vanilla, which is the top selling flavour in the country!
