Since the verdict isn’t in yet on whether or not ice cream is healthy for you, (actually the verdict is in – we just don’t like it), we figured we’d share some thoughts from here at Creamies Ice Cream on why eating ice cream is good for you anyway.

There are many thoughts that come to mind, but we’ve managed to cut our list down to just the top three reasons why you should eat more ice cream.

1. Ice cream is a good stress reliever.

While we’d never advocate eating your feelings away, occasionally eating some ice cream can definitely be a great way to wind down after a long day. Did you get cut off on the drive home? Did your dog eat your shoe? Were the kids fighting? Don’t worry, a scoop or a bar of ice cream is all but guaranteed to put a smile back on your face. Our marketing director here at the office claims a Creamies chocolate ice cream bar does the trick, but the intern swears by a scoop of strawberry ice cream.

2. Ice cream is a great group activity.

Whether or not you’re with a group of good friends or with that special someone on a romantic night out, ice cream remains one of the most shareable foods on the planet. Good ice cream loves good company. There’s a flavor for everyone and you can buy it in almost any size. Keep in mind that no one in your group will be angry you got them ice cream.

Note: If someone is angry that you got them ice cream, maybe it’s time to re-evaluate your relationship.

3. Ice cream is perfect for every occasion.

It really is. Need to celebrate good grades on your kids’ report cards? Ice cream is a great reward. Need to have a serious talk with a friend or family member? Ice cream can help to ease the tension. Hosting a pinkies-up dinner party or just a casual barbeque? That’s right. Ice cream.

We can’t really think of a situation where ice cream wouldn’t be a welcome addition… unless you’re bringing snacks to a support group for lactose intolerant people. Ice cream probably wouldn’t work so great then.

Let’s face it – everyone wants to eat more ice cream anyway. We just wanted to give you a few reasons why you should.
