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

Only rich people could afford this treat, because the creation process was highly valued.

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

Fun facts

  • If you eat the treat too quickly, you may get a headache. This is due to low blood vessel constriction;
  • The waffle cone was discovered by lucky chance: the seller ran out of saucers for ice cream, so he simply rolled a waffle into a cone and filled it. Buyers appreciated not only the look, but also the taste;
  • The strangest flavors are: garlic, avocado, cheese, chili, and bacon. Some people claim that it is quite tasty.
