About Ice Cream

 

Ice cream’s history almost reaches as far as when the Ancient Greeks walked the earth. Ice Cream's creator could not exactly be determined because of its long history. According to the IDFA (International Dairy Foods Association), “Alexander the Great enjoyed snow and ice flavored with honey and nectar. Biblical references also show that King Solomon was fond of iced drinks during harvesting. During the Roman Empire, Nero Claudius Caesar (A.D. 54-86) frequently sent runners into the mountains for snow, which was then flavored with fruits and juices.” These historical examples prove that it isn’t just popular in this century is was popular way before we even thought it could be. Many other famous people like Marco Polo enjoyed the ice cream, he even invented one of our favourite ice creams, Sherbert!
