In celebration of National Ice Cream Month, The Liverpool Review asked you to submit your favorite places to get a cone, sundae or other frosty treat.
According to the International Dairy Foods Association, President Ronald Reagan declared July to be National Ice Cream Month in 1984. The president's proclamation recognized ice cream as a fun, nutritious food enjoyed by 90 percent of the nation's population. The U.S. ice cream industry generates more than $21 billion in annual sales and provides jobs for thousands of citizens. About 9 percent of all the milk produced by U.S. dairy farmers is used to produce ice cream. .Reagan called for Americans to observe the month with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

Vicky's Tasty Treats
My family and I love to stop by Vicky's Tasty Treats on a hot day to cool down. It has the best ice cream around, and the atmosphere is very pleasant and personal. We also love to look at the photos on the wall of people we know enjoying their ice cream. My mother especially loves the orange and white soft ice cream twist. We all hope that Vicky's will be here for a very long time.

Christopher's Good Times Ice Cream
My favorite ice cream stand is Christopher's Good Times Ice Cream in Mattydale near the Hollywood Theater. I love their soft serve-- it's the richest and creamiest ice cream I've ever had. I've tried at least 10 different ice cream stands in the area this summer, and I can't find one that beats their soft serve.
Pappy's Ice Cream
What's my favorite ice cream place? I'm glad you asked. It's Pappy's Ice Cream. And, if you're not familiar with it, Pappy's is located on Burnet Avenue, near the Teall Avenue exit, off Route 690. It is owned and operated by Dominick's Restaurant, so now you have a clue as to the quality of ice cream served there.
