119th Anniversary of the First Documented Ice Cream Sundae ♥


Today is the 119th Anniversary of the First Documented Ice Cream Sundae! I am a big lover of ice cream, though my sensitive teeth often hold me back! I found a website that is the official website of ice cream sundaes, crazy ha! 

In their words: "No dessert could be simpler than the Ice Cream Sundae – a scoop of ice cream, a sweet topping, and the ubiquitous whipped cream and cherry at the top. But icons are never really that simple, and, perhaps more than any other dish, the Sundae is an American icon.  Like people, nations are what they eat.  More than any other native dish, the Ice Cream Sundae is an essential reminder of the American genius for invention, passion for indulgence, and reputation for wackiness.  The French may have given refinement to ice cream with their coupes and parfaits, but it took American excess and ingenuity to create the Sundae.  It's as messy and irresistible as democracy itself."

Well, who cares about the history, I'm going to eat some ice cream!!!
