In case you need something to celebrate this weekend, other than it being the weekend, National Ice Cream Day is on Sunday, July 15th. (As if we need a reason to enjoy a delicious cold treat on a hot summer days in Louisiana).

I'm always on the look out for local or regional flavors for just about anything, and ice cream is no exception. Below are some of my suggestions for ice cream with a cajun twist. Some of them are around, and some of them need to be snapped up by someone who could make a fortune right here in the great state of Louisiana! Enjoy!
