This event is called National Ice Cream Soda Day and takes place on June 20. Every American family has a chance to boast of a unique, inimitable recipe for preparing and presenting a summer treat.
Like most of the greatest inventions in various fields, this drink appeared by chance. Robert Green participated in a fair selling carbonated drink. Suddenly, the ice ran out. It was unacceptable to serve the drinks warm. The merchant decided to add a portion of ice cream to each glass and… invented a national treasure.
An alternative version of the appearance of ice cream soda marks the key role of a pastry chef named Fred Sanders. He was in charge of sales at a candy store. When customers demanded a sweet drink, the seller added cream for a characteristic cloying taste. When the dairy product ran out, ice cream was used.
- There is a variety of flavors and additives. Americans like to decorate the drink with fresh berries and fruits (peaches).
- Ice cream was invented in the Middle Ages in Italy.
- Baskin-Robbins is famous for their wide choice.
Ice and fruit were combined 5 thousand years ago. The dessert equivalent to modern sorbet was formed from an ancient treat with a centuries-old history.
