Ice cream is one of the oldest foods in the world and loved by many; from different classes of people and generations to generations.
Name them? From China king, Roman emperarors, Marco Polo, King of England to an American town of Evanston have a touch to put a history in ice cream.
A kind of ice-cream was invented in China about 200 BC when a milk and rice mixture was frozen by packing it into snow. Roman emperors were supposed to have sent slaves to mountain tops to bring back fresh snow which was then flavoured and served as an early form of ice-cream.
An ice-cream-like food was first eaten in China in 618-97 AD. King Tang of Shang, had 94 ice men who helped to make a dish of buffalo milk, flour and camphor.
The Italian explorer, Marco Polo (1254-1324), was believed to have seen ice-creams being made during his trip to China and introduced them to Italy.
The King of England, Charles I (1600-1649), was supposed to have offered his chef £500 a year to keep his ice-cream recipe a secret from the rest of England.
While Ice Cream Sundaes were accidentally created to get around illegal selling of ice cream sodas on a Sunday in the American town of Evanston during the late 19th century. Some traders replaced the soda with syrup and called the dessert an "Ice Cream Sunday." The final "y" on Sunday word was replaced with an "e" to avoid upsetting religious leaders.
