National Ice Cream Day: Local ice cream shop makes list of memorable places

CINCINNATI - It's summer. It's hot. Luckily, Sunday is National Ice Cream Day.

In honor of the day, declared a holiday by proclamation honoring the popularity of ice cream in July 1984 by President Ronald Regan, PBS Food asked some friends to share their favorite summertime ice cream hot (or would that be cold?) spots.

Some of the most memorable come from Buxton, North Carolina to Berkley, Michigan. And guess who else is on the list?

Answer: The United Dairy Farmers located at 11620 Springfield Pike, submitted by Taryn Stewart, the homepage and newsletter editor for PBS Digital.

"It is there that I learned that there is absolutely nothing in the world hot fudge can't fix!" wrote Stewart in her submission.
