Follow along as we explore the sweet history and unexpected influences of America's favorite dessert.

McDonald's will give away vanilla soft serve ice cream cones on Sunday to celebrate National Ice Cream Day.

McDonald's: The Golden Arches is getting into the festivities with an offer for free ice cream cones - but first you have to download the McDonald's mobile app. One guest will receive a special "Golden Arches Cone", an exclusive, limited edition cone that entitles the victor to McDonald's soft serve for life.

This year 16 WAPT is defending its title as Mississippi's Best Ice Cream Scoopers. Ice Cream Weekends are being celebrated all month at the park in Kirtland, where you can get close to dairy cows and learn how the ice cream is made. No tours of McDonald's ice cream factory will be provided, however. Canine visitors at participating PetSmart PetHotel spots on July 16 will receive free Doggie Ice Cream Sundaes.

Kid Rock doubles down on Senate bid
Republicans are hoping it's the start of a reversal of fortune in a state that typically sends Democrats to the Senate. Rock said he had "no plans for an album or anything else that has been the usual norm in the music business".

The chain is offering several deals for its mobile app users on the 16th. The victor will immediately realize their fortune as their scoop of vanilla will be served in a special "Golden Arches Cone".

Whole Foods wants you to enjoy ice cream this Sunday. Customers can buy two pints for $6. In addition, the chain will be hosting a "Sundae Fundae" event in stores, where customers will have the chance to sample and make their own sundaes.

Wendy's: Get a small vanilla or chocolate Frosty for just $0.50 (through August 25). The deal runs through August 25. You can have your bar dipped in dark, milk or white chocolate and select three toppings.
