“I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!”
– “Ice Cream,” 1920s novelty song

Ice cream, a frozen confection made from sweetened milk, is popular around the world. Its origins are ancient; snow mixed with honey and fruit was sold in the marketplaces in Athens, Greece. Explorer Marco Polo first brought the idea of “fruit ices” to Europe from China during the 1200s. By the 1600s, successful ice cream shops had been established in France.

Ice cream was first contained in a cone during the 1800s, but it was popularized during the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. Legend has it that the ice cream vendor ran out of bowls. He asked a nearby waffle vendor – who was selling little due to the heat – if he could fold his waffles to form a container, and the waffle cone was born.

Ice cream differs in various parts of the world. For example, in Japan, you might find unusual flavors such as sesame seed or sakura flower. In Iran, a frozen dessert is made from vermicelli noodles and rosewater – made with real rose petals – served with pistachio nuts and lime juice. Specialty shops often make ice cream right before the customer’s eyes, using liquid nitrogen to freeze the ingredients quickly.
