119th Century of First Documented Ice Cream Sundae

119th Anniversary of the First Documented Ice Cream Sundae

The dessert, characterised by a syrup-drizzled scoop of vanilla ice cream with a wafer and cherry on top, is thought to have been created in 1892 when New York soda fountain proprietor Chester Platt served the dish to church minister John Scott.

Others believe the Sundae was invented after an ice cream truck collided with a syrup tanker.

The ice cream was subsequently named after the Sabbath and served every Sunday in a variety of flavours.

The dish rose to popularity in America during World War II and in 1945 the US Navy commissioned floating ice cream parlours on refrigerated barges selling “Victory Sundaes” to boost soldier morale.

Google’s latest doodle fuels speculation that its new operating system, code-named Ice Cream, is due for release in the next quarter.

“What a amazing and creative ideas are producing in the lab of Googlers”.
