"Ice cream was something my husband and I were hooked on," said Vicki Grossman, talking from New York Scoop in Woodland Hills, her newly opened modern reincarnation of an old-fashioned ice parlor. "It was something of a ritual -- we would take the family to Carvel at least once a week."
That ritual, and others like it -- such as serving ice cream for desert or eating it straight out of the carton with a spoon -- have made ice cream one of the most popular foodstuffs in America today. No better time to celebrate that fact now, with July being National Ice Cream Month, designated by former President Ronald Reagan in 1984.
