Chill out and cool off with a delicious scoop or two of a frozen dairy dessert this weekend for National Ice Cream Day. These local ice cream parlors in Utah County shared their crowd favorites with us. Try some of these delicious creamy, cool refreshments to celebrate National Ice Cream Day on Sunday, July 19.

BYU Creamery

Thick and creamy, BYU’s ice cream comes in dozens of flavors — from traditional vanilla and chocolate, to a more unique variety, such as German Chocolate Crunch or Raspberries and Cream Cheese. One of their most popular flavors is Graham Canyon, a deliciously graham cracker flavored ice cream with chocolate covered crunch balls and swirls of graham cracker.

Baskin Robins

Baskin Robins covers all the basics: vanilla, chocolate, Oreo and mint, but what really sets them apart are their unique and popular flavors, such as Strawberry Cheesecake, Mom’s Making Cookies (brown sugar flavored ice cream with chocolate cookie chunks) and Fireworks Fun (a red and blue colored, vanilla-based ice cream).

Rita’s Ice

Don’t let the name fool you, this place houses some of the best custard and frozen ice in the area. Swing by one of their locations in Provo, American Fork or Spanish Fork this weekend for a fresh mango Italian Ice or grab some of their ever-popular vanilla custard — better hurry on that one; Rita’s is switching to soft-serve during the national egg shortage and won’t be serving custard until the shortage ends.

Sub Zero

If you like caramel, vanilla and cinnamon, you’ll enjoy Sub Zero’s popular Dulce de Leche-flavored ice cream, Bernoulli Brulee. This delicious combination sensation also has pieces of Twix and Heath mixed in. Just as a heads up, you can also get excited about Sub Zero’s free ice cream day (Aug. 12) in celebration of the company’s 10th anniversary.


Try the Founder’s Favorite (sweet cream ice cream with pecans, brownies, fudge and caramel) or the Peanut Butter Cup Perfection (chocolate ice cream with peanut butter, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and fudge). Other popular flavors include cotton candy with gummy bears or cake batter.
