Introduction

It's time to get excited for National Rocky Road Day on June 2! This day was established in honor of one of the most popular ice cream flavors of all time – and we can guarantee it'll be a sweet treat. The origins of this delicious flavor date back to 1929, when William Dreyer and Joseph Edy created Rocky Road Ice Cream as a way to use up excess ingredients. The combination of marshmallows, chocolate, and nuts has been a favorite ever since. So don't miss out on the chance to celebrate with your favorite bowl (or cone!) of Rocky Road Ice Cream.
