Looking for ways to keep cool? Of course. Well, here is the best way to keep from overheating this month: ice cream. And lots of it. Blue Bell is hosting free scoop events in July to commemorate National Ice Cream Month and the release of its newest–and super summery flavor–Caramel Kettle Crunch. Here’s the scoop (ha!):
Popcorn & A Movie
Thursday, July 8 – MADCAP Theaters

On Thurs., July 8 Blue Bell will serve up “popcorn” before the movie in the form of Caramel Kettle Crunch.
