We Visited “The Ice Cream Capitol of the World”

Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month in 1984. Reagan recognized the popularity of ice cream in the United States (90% of the nation’s population consumes ice cream) and stated that this event should be observed with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” Not one to go against the wishes of a former President, my daughter and I visited “The Ice Cream Capitol of the World” this weekend.

According to the Le Mars website,

Le Mars, Iowa – “The Ice Cream Capital of the World”. Officially designated as such in 1994, Le Mars has been the home to Wells Enterprises Inc. , makers of Blue Bunny® brand ice cream, since the company’s founding by Fred H. Wells, Jr., in 1913. Today, more ice cream is produced in Le Mars, Iowa, by a single company than in any other city in the world!

And they’re making even more ice cream after our visit – we ate a lot of their supplies – sorry about that! So Yummy!
