National Chocolate Ice Cream Day Isn't Every Day?
Call us cynical, but most "food holidays" seem like a not-very-subtle way to drive profits towards a somewhat under-appreciated (meaning, under-purchased) food. By promoting something like "Artichoke Day," it implants the idea of that food out to the masses, and probably boosts sales for a day or so. That's our theory anyway, and one that makes complete sense. Well, until you get something like National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. Who among us doesn't purchase chocolate ice cream on a regular basis? Why do the chocolate ice cream lobbyists spend time pursuing the national holidays racket when, really, they should just be swimming in pools of money, Scrooge McDuck-style? In any case, seeing as chocolate ice cream is literally one of the greatest desserts in the history of humans eating desserts, we thought we'd open up our gallery a bit and travel outside of the greater L.A. area for a few photos towards the bottom of our gallery. Enjoy!
