Did you know that in 1984, U.S. President Ronald Reagan declared July to be National Ice Cream Month, with the third Sunday being National Ice Cream Day? Why not plan an ice cream tour that day!
King’s Ice Cream (1809 Mountain Road) is a Moncton favourite. The lovely flowers and funky ice cream seats are a great backdrop for capturing family photos. Expect a smile and a few extra chocolate chips with each order – and the portions are huge!
