The History

The History of the holiday dedicated to hot fudge ice cream has several versions. And all because different cities claim to be the birthplace of this sweet. According to one version, the delicacy was invented by the pharmacist Sonntang from Plainfield. According to another version, the treat appeared in 1881 in the city of Two Rivers thanks to George Hallauer, who sold the original dessert on Sundays.

The third story takes us to Evanston, Illinois, where a law was signed in 1890 banning the sale of soda ice cream on Sundays. Then the resourceful seller replaced the soda with hot fudge, the new dessert produced a stunning effect.
