Ice cream is a symbol of summer and a favorite treat of both children and adults. Traditionally, it is made from milk and sugar. Today, many non-dairy versions are also available, often made from nut "milks."
Ice cream was first introduced in Europe in the 1600s. Explorer Marco Polo described "fruit ices" he had observed in Asia. These predecessors to ice cream may date back many centuries.
The popular ice cream cone was invented at the World's Fair in St. Louis, Missouri, USA in 1904.

Legend has it that when an ice cream purveyor ran out of bowls, he turned to a nearby waffle seller for help. The waffles were folded, and the ice cream cone was born.
Did you know? The most popular ice cream flavors are vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. All three of these flavors are combined in Neapolitan ice cream.

How to Draw a Great Looking Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin by drawing a long curved line. It should nearly, but not completely, enclose an irregular round shape. This is the bulk of the ice cream scoop. Draw a short curved line overlapping one end of the first line.
