Ice Cream Sundae Started in New York
Did you know the ice cream sundae was originally created in Upstate New York?
Over more than 130 years ago the first ice cream sundae was born. It happened on April 5th, 1892 in Ithaca, New York at Platt & Colt's Pharmacy on State Street.
Legend has it, Chester Pratt, owner of the Pharmacy, would always be paid a visit by Reverend John M. Scott from the Unitarian Church after services. When they would meet, Pratt would always make Reverend Scott a dish of vanilla ice cream, with syrup and a cherry on top.
The priest said it was so good and should be shared with more people than just himself. Since it was made on a Sunday, for church services, Reverend Scott suggested naming it after the day. The spelling was later changed to "sundae" to avoid offending anyone at the time.
