33 Flavors Day is an annual American holiday celebrating the flavors of ice cream. How many flavors of this dessert are there: 10, 33, or more than 50? It doesn’t matter at all. Let’s try them all! It is celebrated on March 3.
The history of 33 Flavors Day is not known, but some researchers believe that it was created in honor of the greatest ice cream company – Baskin-Robbins. It was just founded on March 3, 1945.
The first ice cream was made in China, and from there it spread to Europe thanks to the traveler Marco Polo. The first recipes included only two ingredients: milk and juice (from fruits or berries). The mixture was frozen and made a great dessert. The peak of popularity of ice cream was observed in Italy and France. Over time, the recipe for such a simple but very tasty dessert spread around the world.
Ice cream appeared in the United States in the 19th century. It sold especially well at trade shows and holiday events on hot days. The production of ice cream on an industrial scale did not begin until the 1900s, when refrigeration equipment became available. Now you didn’t have to worry about the ice cream melting!
- A great lover of ice cream was Queen Catherine de Medici of France.
- Today, there are three absolute champions in the world of dessert: chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream.
- To make the ice cream smooth, without large ice crystals, a stabilizer is used, the role of which is often performed by gelatin.
