July: National Grilling & Hot Dog & Ice Cream Month

Submitted by on July 11, 2017 – 8:14 amNo Comment

Grilled Hot DogsA number of special foodie observances are held in July — three of them seem just right for summer.

July is not only National Grilling Month but also National Hot Dog Month and, since 1984, National Ice Cream Month.

Whether we call them frankfurters or just plain hot dogs, according to the United States Census Bureau, Americans eat some seven billion of them during the summer months: grilled, microwaved, or boiled. While more hot dogs are consumed during the season, they are popular year-round — part of nearly $48 billion of processed meats sold in the United States each year.

And when it comes to ice cream, we especially savor the cold treat during the summer and scoop it out all year long. Americans consume a per capita average of over 23 pounds of frozen dairy products annually.
