A big helping of Leatherby’s ice cream


It should be no surprise that ice cream shops around the valley are very busy during this spell of triple-digit heat.

Staff at Leatherby’s in Elk Grove say they go through 500 to 600 gallons of ice cream on a hot day. Multiply that by three locations, and that number ends up being around 1,500 gallons.

It’s been like this for Leatherby’s all weekend.

The store’s freezer stays at a chilly 30 degrees below zero – and is a zero-calorie way to cool off, but the general public might have to find some other way.
