National Ice Cream Pie Day

August 18

National Ice Cream Pie Day - August 18

National Ice Cream Pie Day is a great excuse to treat yourself to some ice cream! But not the usual ice cream on a stick, but in the form of a frozen dessert that melts in your mouth. Today you can try different flavors that will make you close your eyes with pleasure.

The History

Historians believe that the first ice cream appeared in Persia about 2500 thousand years ago. Initially, it was sweetened frozen water, then various fillings were added to it – fruits, berries.

Only rich people could afford such a treat, because the process of creation was highly valued.

Ice cream pies came later. Initially, people simply smeared pies with it, and only then they came up with the idea of ​​​​adding it inside the baked shell.

Fun facts

We have put together a list of moments that will definitely make you laugh:

  • ice cream is filled with air – it keeps ice crystals from destruction;
  • a fried dessert originally from Thailand. It is quickly fried to a beautiful crust, while the core remains cold;
  • if you eat the treat too quickly, you may get a headache. This is due to low blood vessel circulation;
  • the waffle cone was obtained by a lucky chance: the seller ran out of saucers for ice cream, so he simply rolled the waffle into a cone and filled it. Buyers appreciated not only the look, but also the taste of the dessert;
  • the strangest flavors: garlic, avocado, cheese, chili, bacon. Some people claim that it is quite tasty.
