It’s Never Too Cold for Ice Cream
It’s no secret that ice cream becomes less popular during the colder months as many people prefer a hot beverage in the winter. As a result, most ice cream shops only operate during the summer due to the lack of business in the “off-season”. However, we’re here to tell you that there are plenty of reasons to keep indulging in ice cream, even in the winter! Here are five reasons why:
It Helps You Stay Warm
Yes, you read that right. The human body works hard to maintain a healthy body temperature which means it works even hard in the colder months to keep you warm, so much so that studies have shown shivering for about 15 minutes is equivalent to an hour of working out! Eat your ice cream outside and you could be burning more than 100 calories in 15 minutes.
The Line at The Ice Cream Shop is Shorter
During the summer, people spend hours standing in line during sweltering temperatures just to get the sweet cool down from ice cream. In the winter though, you can expect short lines, if any at all! The truth is, ice cream tastes the same in the summer as in the winter so why not take advantage of the quick and easy access during the cold weather season?
It Soothes a Sore Throat
Sore throats are common during the winter and there’s nothing better than ice cream to sooth it by reducing the inflammation. This may help parents make sure their children are taking in some calories when they avoid eating due to a sore throat. I mean, what child would refuse an ice cream?
Your Ice Cream Won’t Melt
You can walk outside with your ice cream and it does not melt. You can take your time eating it and enjoying every bite without it leaking through your fingers or all over your hands!
It’s Often on Sale in The Winter
Due to the decrease in sales during the winter months, many ice cream products go on sale at the grocery store. Ice cream still makes a great dessert even in the winter (and a great companion for watching movies on the couch) so why not buy it in the winter if it’s even cheaper? Now is your chance to try those expensive, decadent brands you’ve been eyeing all summer!
