I Scream, You Scream We all Scream for Ice Cream! Happy National Ice Cream Day - enjoy our Ice Cream Trivia : )
Giant Teddy bears love many things and ice cream is certainly up there on the list. They are some of the softest, biggest, life size teddy bears you'll ever meet and they love to have fun.
Today is National Ice Cream Day and it happens to be during Giant Teddy Bear Picnic Month so all the bears are celebrating.
Especially Sunny Cuddles. He's a big soft oversized mocha brown teddy bear who loves to say "Pawesome!" (he's trying to make it go viral) and he loves to eat. You'll find him Tweeting outrageous things on Twitter or bothering people on Hump Day with camel jokes - he is our fun-loving class clown bear.

Smiley Chubs felt it was his civic duty to go out and celebrate National Ice Cream Day with a big ice cream cone! Smiley is adorable - he's a huge teddy bear with vanilla cream fur that is so soft and huggable.

Fun Ice Cream Trivia:
-Vanilla outsells all other flavors in the US, followed by chocolate
-At one point in the state of Kansas, it was illegal for restaurants to serve cherry pie with ice cream on it
-Ice Cream Cones became popular after appearing at the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904
-Americans eat an average 5 1/2 gallons of ice cream a year (Giant Teddy bears average a few gallons more...)
-Neapolitan is (usually) chocolate, vanilla and strawberry together in one carton but "layered" by flavor and is named after a famous man who created 3 layered ice cream cakes in Naples in the late 1800's
-Ice Cream Day (3rd Sunday in July) and Ice Cream Month (July) were both made official in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan
-Giant Teddy legend has it that Sunny Cuddles was once asked to leave an ice cream parlor after his 53rd spoonful of a "sample taste" claiming he couldn't make up his mind... we all kind of believe that may be true and not just an internet rumor
Enjoy some cool frosty ice cream today and all month... and get yourself a Giant Teddy Bear to share it with you!
