Living in Southern California, we get laughed out when we complain about any cold weather we get… and rightfully so. I remember the first time I went to New York and experienced REAL cold weather. Yeah, TOTALLY different than SoCal “cold” weather!

That doesn’t mean that we don’t internally freak out when it gets too cold to wear flip-flops for a day. Or that we don’t celebrate when the warm weather returns. Because we totally do. The minute it hits 70+ for a few days in a row… it is party time. More specifically- ice cream party time!

Even if it isn’t jump-in-the-pool weather, we eat ice cream while dipping our toes in the water. 

Nobody has to ask this girl more than once if she would like a cool treat.

She is always the first one there to celebrate. Right now she is in love with Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake! She said they taste like freshly picked strawberries and creamy ice cream.

Pete’s favorites are the Breyer’s 2-in-1’s and the Talenti Gelato Pints. These can all be found at Safeway and when we went to buy them we were frozen in the aisle because there were so many yummy flavors. We thawed out and chose these two to share with our family because you can’t go wrong with vanilla or cookies, right? PS. Did you get my cheesy jokes?

Now is the time to stock up on ice cream for the summer with the Ice Cream Rewards program:

When you spend $20 on participating Unilever Ice Cream brands, you’ll receive a $5 digital reward of your choice (A Visa Rewards Virtual gift card, a FandangoNOW reward or a Print-at-Home Movie Certificate) so head to your local Safeway NOW to grab your Unilever Ice Cream brands then take a photo of your receipt and upload it to to receive your $5 reward.
