Ice-Cream, one of the most delicious desserts can be traced back to the Roman emperor, Nero, who combined ice from the mountains with fruit toppings.
King Tang of China created ice and milk concoctions. Recipes for milk ices and sherbets emerged over time and were served in Italian and French royal courts.
The dessert was imported to the United States and served to guests by such famous people as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.
In 1846 Nancy Johnson patented a hand-cranked freezer that established the basic method of making ice-cream which is still used today.
Then, in 1904, ice-cream cones were invented at the St. Louis World Exposition. They appeared when a seller ran out of dishes and improvised by rolling up some waffles.
Today ice-cream is available in countless flavors and adored by young and old alike—one of the most delectable treats!
