utica ice cream festival 2016-01We all scream for ice cream on the Afternoon Drive!

Today was Who Knew Wednesday, and we decided to talk all about the delicious frozen dessert since we are getting ready for the Utica Ice Cream Festival this weekend. Click here for all the information on the festival and parade.

First, we shared the history of ice cream, which you can find over here, along with several other fun facts.

We also took the Ice Cream Identity Quiz to find out which flavor of ice cream we are. Eddie got vanilla and I got anything with cookies. Click here to take the quiz for yourself, and let us know what you get!

We shared some more fun facts from this website.

Our Troyer’s Trivia Question was “what day of the week most ice cream is purchased on?”. Erica from Mount Vernon called in and correctly guessed that it’s Sunday, so she picks up a $5 gift certificate to Troyer’s of Apple Valley.

Our Word of the Day was hypnagogic (hip-nuh-goh-jik), an adjective meaning of or relating to drowsiness.You can read more on that here.

Have an awesome Wednesday evening!
