We’ve Got the Scoop on Ice Cream to Try on National Ice Cream Day

National Ice Cream Day is July 16, and what better way to celebrate than with a scoop of Babcock Dairy’s famous ice cream? To help you decide which flavor should be your go-to at the Daily Scoop, we’ve asked some of our awesome Wisconsin Union employees what their favorite Babcock flavor is and why.
