Ice Cream Celebrates Its Birthday

On a hot day like today, ice cream would certainly hit the spot. Thankfully, someone invented the stuff way back when, so we could dive into it during the Frog Days of Summer.

It was on this day, June 8, 1786 that ice cream was sold for the very first time in New York City. Can you imagine back during the Revolutionary War days, selling ice cream without electricity for refrigeration? Boy those colonists were clever harvesting ice blocks in winter and spring and keeping them on hand for that ice cream in the summer months. Sounds like they had that problem licked! We owe them big time!
