🍦National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day – Feb 1st, 2020 @ Cookie Dough Creamery

To celebrate National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day (2/1/2020), Cookie Dough Creamery is opening at 7 AM. We will be adding freshly made Waffle Bites and Maple Syrup topping to our self serve sundae bar as well as additional cereals. Customers are encouraged to wear pajamas. 

After having ice cream for breakfast, enjoy shopping at the Worthington Farmers Market, which opens at 9 AM in the Shops at Worthington Place where we are located. 

National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day was invented on a snowy winter day in the 1960s by Florence Rappaport in Rochester, New York. The mother to six children, it was her youngest two, Ruth (now Kramer) and Joe Rappaport, who inspired her on a cold and snowy February morning. To entertain them, she declared it to be Ice Cream For Breakfast Day. She explained, “It was cold and snowy and the kids were complaining that it was too cold to do anything. So I just said, ‘Let’s have ice cream for breakfast.'” The next year, they reminded her of the day and a tradition began. The exact year of the first ICFBD is unrecorded, but it is speculated to be 1966, when a huge blizzard hit Rochester in late January, dumping several feet of snow on Rochester and shutting down schools. When the siblings grew up, they held parties and introduced the tradition to friends while in college, and the tradition began to spread.
