Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? I don't know about you, but I'm getting ready to celebrate with some Edy's Slow Churned Ice Cream! And what better way to celebrate National Ice Cream Month than to try some new flavors? Edy's released four exciting limited-edition flavors that are now available in the freezer aisle.

  • “Take the Cake”: Yellow cake-flavored light ice cream with a frosting swirl and multi-colored sprinkles. It’s the classic combination of cake and ice cream in one convenient carton. Available in Slow Churned Light Ice Cream. 
  • NEW “German Chocolate Cake Spectacular!”: If you froze a German Chocolate Cake and then exploded it into a carton of chocolate ice cream, you’d end up with this amazing limited edition flavor. Chocolate ice cream with a caramel coconut swirl and brownie pieces. Available in Grand Ice Cream and Slow Churned Light Ice Cream. 
  • NEW “Sunny Salted Caramel Pretzel”: Salty, sweet and oh so scrumptious. Vanilla ice cream with a salted caramel swirl and pretzel pieces. It’s probably the greatest flavor combination in the history of the world. Available in Grand Ice Cream and Slow Churned Light Ice Cream. 
  • “3 Stripes You’re Out”: America’s Favorite Pastime has a new favorite flavor! Vanilla Ice Cream with Mixed Blueberry and Strawberry Swirls. This Limited Edition flavor will leave your home crowd on its feet cheering! Available in Grand Ice Cream.

Another reason I love Edy's is that is has all the taste and ½ the fat (with ½ the fat and 1/3 fewer calories than regular ice cream.) So that means I can go right ahead and eat it with my family too! Just check out Mary eating her Edy's ice cream!

Just look at that happy little face! The flavors we ended up picking were the German Chocolate Cake, the Sunny Salted Caramel Pretzel and Strawberry and gave her a scoop of each to try out! Can you tell she loved it?

Edy's not only gives kids eating their ice cream smiles, but they also help raise money to donate to kids for Operation Smile too! Building off the success of last year’s initiative, the brand is once again partnering with Operation Smile, an international children’s medical charity, to make possible 500 reconstructive surgeries for children around the globe suffering from cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.

Since May 15, Edy’s ice cream has been posting content on its Facebook page every two weeks encouraging fans to help the brand donate to Operation Smile. Each uniquely stamped “A Reason to Smile” post features different methods of participation – from liking and sharing to commenting – creating personalized opportunities for fans to engage with the cause and help Edy’s reach its goal.

Edy’s will donate up to $125,000 to Operation Smile this year. The campaign will run through September 31, 2013. For more information about “A Reason to Smile” or Edy’s Ice Cream, please visit Are you ready to smile? Join the conversation on Twitter and Instagram at #ReasontoSmile.
