ROCHESTER, Minn. - KIMT News 3 got a behind-the-scenes look at how 16 new flavors are being made.

Kemps pasteurizes 300,000 gallons of milk in a week, which is around 4,800 gallons an hour.

With the heat, Rachel Kyllo, the Senior Vice President of Growth and Innovation at Kemps says ice cream sales soar.

"So 70 percent of our ice cream is sold over the summer months and July and August are the biggest volume months for us," Kyllo said.

National Ice Cream Day will be July 21st.
