As we have entered into the second month of 2020, now is the time to reflect and ask, are you sticking to those resolutions you made on January 1st? Well, it is a known fact that many people give up on there resolutions after the first 2-3 weeks.
Studies have shown that it takes a good 66 days to form a new, automatic habit. That means, don’t give up after a few short weeks, keep the momentum going and you will make that resolution a new habit in no time.
One popular resolution is giving up sweets, going on a diet and really trying to lose weight. While I am all about better health, I don’t believe you have to give up on all sweets and small indulgences only to make yourself miserable and possibly binge, which makes it worse. Let me tell you about a sweet company right here in my hometown state of Ohio – Velvet Ice Cream.
About Velvet Ice Cream
Family has been at the center of everything we do for four generations. Since 1914, Velvet Ice Cream has been family owned and operated in Utica, OH. Our premium craft ice cream, with its signature velvety texture, has grown to be a staple in homes throughout central Ohio and across the region (OH, KY, WV, MI, IN).
With a long tradition of supporting local communities, organizations and a steadfast commitment to giving back, Velvet Ice Cream supports many organizations like: Pelotonia, the Utica Sertoma, Adopt-A-Highway, Licking County Humane Society and others.
We currently produce more than 5 million gallons of ice cream and welcome over 150,000 visitors to our headquarters in Utica, OH every year.
Starting with the first gallon of hand-cranked vanilla ice cream that Joseph Dager made in 1914, we have never compromised our recipes, traditions or values because they are what make Velvet a true original.
