2 June – Rocky Road Day

 

Rocky Road Day - Elizabeth Place

Today is Rocky Road Day!

Rocky road ice cream is a delicious dessert with an interesting culinary history. In 1929, after the stock market crash, a man named William Dreyer (the founder of Dreyer Ice Cream) calmed his Black Thursday nerves by creating the original rocky road. He mixed chunky almonds, mini marshmallows, and delicious milk chocolate ice cream to create a new ice cream flavour that would make people smile despite the tough economic times. It instantly became a favourite all over the world. 

Celebrate Rocky Road Day with a delicious rocky road ice cream sundae. Yum!
