Bassetts celebrates 150 years in the ice cream business

    Bassetts has been in the Reading Terminal Market since 1893, but the ice cream company dates back 150 years. To celebrate that (and National Ice Cream Month), Bassetts will host a bash later this month.

    The Philly based ice-cream maker happens to share its birthday with the 27th annual National Ice Cream Month, KYW reports, so July 16 is the big day. Look for ice cream-eating contests, tastings, games, demonstrations and live music at RTM.
