I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream — but never more loudly than on National Ice Cream Day, which is Sunday. A few businesses have some sweet deals for you.
Yogurtland: Known best for its frozen yogurt, the chain unveiled an ice cream lineup last year. On Sunday, it will serve up a buy-one, get-one free offer from 1 to 6 p.m. Choose from five flavors: chocolate, vanilla, chocolate malt ball made with Whoppers, butter pecan (a light option) and Oreo cookies and cream. Two locations: 920 California Ave, and 10930 Stockdale Highway.
Creamistry: Now through Sunday, the shop will offer a buy-one, get-one-half-off deal on its made-to-order, premium liquid nitrogen ice cream. New summer flavors include honeycomb toffee, lemon cookie and oranges 'n' cream. Guests also have a chance to enter to win a $100 Creamistry gift card. To win, you must follow @creamistry on Instagram and tag a friend in the designated post. Tag other friends in separate replies for more chances to win the drawing, which ends Sunday. 3900 California Ave #200.
Baskin-Robbins: The chain will offer a few deals on its app (like a free scoop when you first download it) but will also unveil on Sunday its Freak Shakes, custom concoctions that are best shared to prevent total sugar shock.
